Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, book 2, Linger, to be released July 1, 2010.
Enjoy the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer? Or not. Either way, this love story by Maggie Steifvater will work its way into your heart and give you goosebumps.
Grace was attacked by wolves when she was a little girl, dragged into the woods, and bitten over and over. But why did she survive and why does she still love the wolves who roam the woods behind her house, especially the gray one with the yellow eyes? Maybe Grace is a bit strange, maybe she shouldn't try to protect the wolves when a local teen is attacked and murdered by them, but Grace still stands by the wolves and swears their innocence. When a badly injured boy with yellow eyes is found on her back porch the afternoon the townfolk have gone after the wolves, Grace's life changes forever. She falls in love with the boy, or maybe she's loved him all along...
