O. M. G.
Since this is listed as a Y.A. book, I didn't expect to like it as much as I did.
It's well written, the characters are real, some likeable, some not. I don't want to spoil that plot. The whole story wasn't what I expected.... at all. I began knowing nothing about the book, which is a great way to begin this story.
and so it begins...
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house.
One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to
live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen
woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless
girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the
cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed
boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to
be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing
himself, and Grace, forever.
