The Lovereading4Kids comment
A touching and chilling love story with a difference, set in a small town that is haunted and terrified after a boy is killed by a pack of wolves. But Grace is drawn to the wolves despite their power and to one wolf in particular – the one with yellow eyes. And then Grace falls in love with a boy who also has yellow eyes. Is he her wolf? Grace has to use the power of her love to save the boy from becoming all wolf.
Shiver is a haunting, breathtaking and original supernatural love story that will have you hooked from the very first page. Told with two narrative voices, we follow the inner thoughts and feelings of both Grace and Sam throughout their extraordinary romance, right to the chilling twist. Sam lives two lives; for a few precious months in the summer he is human whilst in the winter his home is the frozen woods. For Grace she is fascinated by the wolf pack and by one yellow-eyed wolf in particular, until that is she meets a yellow-eyed boy who is somehow very familiar. The quality of the writing makes this a novel that will stand out in the crowd.
The author’s literary influences for Shiver were Crow Lake and The Time Traveller’s Wife ‘because they tell quiet, bittersweet love stories.’
