Maggie Stiefvater

I listened to Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater on audio. It’s a teen fiction book in the paranormal  genre about werewolves. The author tells the story from alternating points of view.  Sam is the male werewolf who lives in the woods behind Grace’s home. Grace has been fascinated with Sam as a wolf ever since she was attacked by the wolf pack when she was younger and saved by Sam in his wolf form. When Grace finds Sam as a human on her back porch after he was shot, she realized that he is “her” wolf.  It is a paranormal teen romance that sets the story up for the sequel. As a parent myself, I found the role that the parents were relegated to in the book irritating…either completely absent and uninvolved or abusive. I didn’t like it as well as others that I have read but it was enjoyable.

Check our catalog for the audio or the book.
