Rate 4 out of 5 stars

Shiver , by Maggie Stiefvater, Grace, a seventeen year old girl, is obsessed with the wolves that live behind her house. When she was young, Grace was attacked by them, but saved by one wolf. The wolf that saved her had very yellow eyes and is the one that she falls in love with. His name is Sam. Although Sam can change from wolf to human depending on temperature, he only has one more summer to stay human. Will he keep fighting to stay human for Grace so they can be together forever, or will he give up and leave her alone forever? Read the book to find out.

Shiver is a romantic, fiction story with mystery on every page. This book was written very well, at a level, which made it a good book for teenagers. Maggie Stiefvater used a lot of imagery in her writing. You can see clearly by her description what Sam looks like in human and wolf form. You can also tell how much Grace and Sam love each other and want to be together forever. I can’t wait to read the next books in the series, Linger and Forever. I hope they are just as suspenseful as Shiver is.
