Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Since when did young adult fiction get so intense? I don't remember books being this consuming when I was a teenager (wow, writing that just made me feel so old). It took just one page, and I found myself wrapped up in all the emotions and angst of Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver.
Set in Minnesota, Shiver is about a teenage girl named Grace and "her" wolves. Of course, she has one wolf in particular, and he happens to be a werewolf named Sam. As their love unfolds, so does the uncertainty of his future--neither of them knows when Sam will change back into a wolf, forever.
The only thing I can think of at this point is, "Sigh."
I sigh because Ms. Stiefvater has successfully captured all the swirling, topsy-turvy, stomach-knotting feelings of first love. I wonder what the next installment will be like.
Yes, this is a trilogy. The second book, Linger, comes out in July.
