    Aislinn Cain wakes up on a cold concrete floor having been drugged and kidnapped by serial killer Raphael Henders.  Despite the chaos, she has a few questions; is Gabriel still alive?  If so, for how long? And where exactly is she? 
    As the answers start to reveal themselves, Aislinn comes to the realization that Raphael Henders is unlike any serial killer she has ever faced before.  Not only is he brilliant, cunning, sadistic, and brutal, he is part of the organized ring of serial killers that the SCTU has been trying to eliminate.  More importantly, he is just one step removed from the leader of the organization and he has answers that Aislinn needs to put her past behind her. 
    To survive and get what she needs, Aislinn will have to play Raphael’s game.  Death is not an option, pitting Aislinn’s own desire to survive against her need to figure out who exactly was behind the murder of Aislinn’s father and sister all those years ago.

    Wake up. It's the first day of seventh grade. Your whole life, from that day until today, vanished like a camera flash. No one else remembers the last ten/fifteen/we-won't-say-how-many years. 
    What do you do? 
    A chilling thought for you. Reality for her. Yesterday, Amy was about to turn twenty-six. Today is Amy's birthday—her thirteenth birthday—and the first day of seventh grade. The last thirteen years vanished overnight. 
    Amy doesn't know how she got here or how she can get back. If she can get back. If she confides in the wrong person, she could be ridiculed, bullied, committed, even killed. So how can she tell the wrong person from the right one? 
    On top of all this, Amy has to survive middle school, again. All the bullies, mean girls, belittling teachers, and hormone-crazed hellions are still there. Every cutting comment hurts just as much the second time around. And what's the story with that strange snake symbol she sees everywhere, or the guy who seems to know way more about her than he's willing to tell? 
    I Am Not Thirteen is an intense, and devastating, supernatural thriller that will keep you hooked until the very last page.
