Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, 400 pages, read by Nikki, on 11/14/2012

For years Grace has had an obsession with the wolves that live in the woods behind her house. Especially a wolf with yellow eyes. One night after the wolves were being hunted for an attack and death of a local teenager, Grace found a boy lying on her back porch naked, wounded from a gunshot with the same yellow eyes.

Let me first start out by saying that I love how you have multiple narrators. I like to see everybody’s point of view and thoughts on whats happening. And for the most part I like the story. What I am confused about is Grace’s personality. She is suppose to be introvert and shy, but once she meets Sam (the boy with the yellow eyes), she’s anything but. Although I do like the book, I wasn’t all that eager to read it, which was actually quite nice. At least this way, I was able to read the book without neglecting my children.
