Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. B+
"For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human ... until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever."
-Back of the book.
The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it seemed like the author read New Moon and tried to make the book her own by putting different characters and changing the wolves,. But it was a little creative like I love the character Sam and I think it's kind of cool how she had the them turn into wolves only when it's cold. I actually think this book would be a big hit...if there wasn't a way better werewolf book already. But it's the kind of book that I think would make a fun and pretty terrifying movie.
