Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf - her wolf - is a haunting 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 and the temperature drops, Sam must fight to stay human or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

REVIEW: I really liked the book, and how Grace tried so hard to keep Sam human. I thought the ending was alright, but there were some unanswered questions that bothered me. Also, it seemed as if all Grace thought about was "making out" with Sam. But other times she only cared about the wolves. Overall, it was a good book, and you should definately read it. No doubt about that. This is one of the books of the summer. x.
