Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Publisher: Scholastic
Reading Level: Young Adult
Rating: 4/5

Grace is fascinated by the wolves in the woods behind her house; one yellow-eyed wolf in particular. Every winter, she watches him but every summer, he disappears. Sam leads two lives. In winter he stays in the frozen woods, with the protection of the pack.n summer, he has a few precious months to be human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again. When Grace and Sam finally meet they realize they can't bear to be apart. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human - or risk losing himself, and Grace, for ever

Wow. Great book! Just what I needed. It was a quick read and I was into it immediately. I'd never read a book with wolves in it before, other than Twilight. I enjoyed the love story. I'm a sucker for those. I dreamed of Sam last night *sigh* The story was focused on Grace and Sam with him a werewolf being the backdrop to their story. It was great! You need to pick this up! I love werewolves now!!! I can't wait for the second installment, Linger, out next year.

Caution to parents: There is one instance of teen sex. It is not explicit. No details. But it's there.

    Might I recommend Need by Carrie Jones? I'm reading it now and it's very good.

    I'm even more excited to read this one now, thank you!

  6. I'm so jealous. I'm totally spazzing for this one.

  7. Sounds great! Have heard many great things about it! Love that it's about werewolves. :)

  8. Wow, sounds good! I'll have to pick it up from the library.
