Grace was attacked by wolves when she was a girl, but one wolf, the one with the yellow eyes, stopped the others from killing her. And ever since, Grace has been obsessed with that wolf. And he appears to be obsessed right back, since she often spots him watching her from the woods behind her house. Then one day Grace finds her wolf injured on her porch. And then right in front of her eyes, he turns into a boy. They fall in love, even though they’ve been in love since they first laid eyes on each other as wolf and girl.
I say again, this is not Twilight. Grace and Sam have the romance; it’s the world that brings drama. Sam can only turn human so many times before always staying a wolf. And his time is up. Meanwhile a new wolf in the neighborhood is making very bad decisions and the townspeople are out to kill the wolves. But Grace was bitten – and never turned into a werewolf. Why? And would that knowledge change things? (Colorado Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award, 2011)
As a girl, Grace survived being attacked by the wolves that haunt the woods behind her parents’ house. It was a special, yellow-eyed wolf that came to her rescue. Ever since then, Grace has watched the woods to catch a glimpse of him. But when a high school student is killed in a wolf attack, the town mobilizes and sends hunters into the woods to flush out the murderous animals. Grace stops the hunt, fearing for the safety of her special wolf. That same day, a captivating boy with eerily familiar eyes appears at her doorstep. She feels a strong bond with Sam even though she realizes that he has a terrible secret: as the temperature drops every fall, he transforms from a boy into a werewolf. Every year, he stays in his wolf form for longer and longer, and this may be his final season as a human. Grace and Sam can only be together if they discover a cure for his condition, and time isn’t on their side. Ramping up the excitement are more mysterious secrets, jealous wolves, and the student who may not have died in that wolf attack after all. This is a heart-pounding supernatural romance in the tradition of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. Linger, the sequel to Shiver, will be published in July, 2010.

She thinks it's a wolf, but it's a boy. A boy with her wolf's yellow eyes...
