Review - Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

I loved this book! It reminded me of Twilight because it involved wolves. Grace was attacked and bitten by wolves when she was little, but one of the wolves saved her and brought her home. Since that time, Grace has kept track of the wolves, especially the one with yellow eyes who saved her life.

A boy from school was attacked by wolves and dies, but then comes up missing from the morgue. A group of men goes into the woods and wants to kill the wolves for doing this. Grace tries to stop them. She goes home to find the yellow eyed wolf--her wolf--bleeding from gunshot wounds, but he is in human form. His name is Sam.

Grace takes Sam into her house, but has to make sure he keeps warm at all times so he doesn't turn back into a wolf. In the meantime, their love grows stronger. They can't figure out why Grace never turned into a wolf though because she was bitten as a little girl. They try to figure out what she may have done to be cured from turning into a wolf.

I fell in love with the characters and with this book. It is another one of my favorite books that I have read this year, and I gave it 5 stars. I highly recommend this book!
