Shiver- Maggie Stiefvater

I have been hearing about this book on the Nest Book Club and so I decided to finally read it. When I got it from the library I decided to dig right in and I don't think I came up for air.

Grace was attacked by wolves as a child. There was one that stood out to her as he saved her. She remembered his eyes and often for years to come watched for him and fed him. She was obsessed with her wolf. Then one day she finds him as a human and it is Sam. The live through months of them finally being able to be together and trying to keep Sam warm enough that he doesn't change. We learn about Wolves and how their lives work. All the while they are hoping for a cure.

This book is all that Twilight could have been. Ms. Stiefvater gives her love intrest a history even if it may seem a bit creepy. They didn't just meet one day and love each other. They have loved each other from  a far for 6 years. Plus Grace was tough, independent, and while she knew that she loved Sam and didn't want to be without him she took on his life in a tough way. I loved the end and can't wait for Linger.
