Book Recommendation: Shiver

Maggie Stiefvater
Pages: 390
Ages: 14+

Ever since that fateful day, the yellow eyes have haunted her thoughts and dreams. Some days she thinks she'd be more at home with the wolves than in her own pale life at Mercy Falls, with increasingly distant friends, and parents who have never been more than occasional inhabitants of the same dwelling. So when her fellow high schooler, Jack Culpepper is violently attacked by the wolf pack and the hunters go on a killing spree, Grace is desperate to stop them. And then there, on her doorstep, bleeding profusely, he appears. The one with yellow eyes. Only he's no longer a wolf - he's human. But can he stay that way?

This was one of those books that gets under your skin and becomes incredibly difficult to put down. The characters are so real, the writing like poetry, the story simple, yet compelling. It is told from two points of view, both of whose voices I loved. Read it!
