Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater Don't wait to read this book like I did since this book lives up to all of the hype. Told through the two points of view of Sam and Grace, the story follows their romance and has a twist at the ending. I have to admit I try to guess the endings and I was caught off guard by this one. Just be aware that there is a sequel. I am not going to spoil it, so you will just have to read it yourself. This is not another generic werewolf book as it builds up to were part through wolves. The writing is what makes all the difference in this story. The writing is lyrical -- it almost sings to you. This book is suited for older teens since the main characters are all almost 18 and there are some sexual situations. Overall, this is just a fabulous read. If you enjoy Stephanie Meyer, Kristin Cashore or Becca Fitzpatrick, you will enjoy this one.
