Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Grace remembers a certain episode in her life when she was little in Mercy Falls, Minnesota. Surrounded by wolves and blood…and the beautiful yellow eyes of her wolf. Now, at 17, Grace still loves the howls of the wolves in the woods behind her house and can always catch a glimpse of her wolf – only by his eyes.
But Grace’s world isn’t perfect. She has parents who prefer their careers over their daughter and her friendship with Olivia and Rachel is slowly crumbling because of Grace’s obsession with wolves. And then, Jack disappears and hunters are out looking to kill the pack.
Grace would do anything to save her wolf…even if that means putting herself in danger. And when that happens, her wolf saves her and shows himself as Sam, a dangerous secret revealed. Now, it’s up to Grace to try to save Sam from transforming again, but with the weather getting colder and colder, the more time they lose until his final transformation.
Teens are in the midst of reading and gobbling up any book that deals with vampires and werewolves, and Maggie Stiefvater’s new book will be a welcome edition to their reading repertoire. Filled with werewolves, action, and romance, YA readers will keep turning the pages to find out what happens between Grace and Sam, which shows itself only at the end. No peeking allowed!!
