Teen Review: “Shiver” by Maggie Stiefvater
Despite being attacked at young age by wolves, Grace has always had a fondness for them. She has watched them for years in the woods that stretch out from her backyard. One, the yellow-eyed wolf, stands out in particular. The wolves only appear in the winter months, and Grace looks forward to their presence every year. There is something special about them. Her yellow-eyed wolf is actually a boy, Sam, who has watched her for years but has never dared to approach her in his human form. When an accident strikes, they finally meet. But as the days grow shorter and the weather colder, Sam is finding it harder and harder to stay human. He has been turning into a wolf for so long, this time he might not change back to human, and he can’t let Grace go. This was an interesting take on werewolves mixed with a beautiful love story.
