Shiver – Maggie Stiefvater. Reviewed by Banana Girl (10)

Would you like to be a were-wolf?

When Grace was a little girl, she was attacked by wolves. She remembered one in particular though – a yellow eyed wolf that had saved her from the pack. From that day, Grace would often see that yellow eyed wolf watching her – little does she know that he is a were-wolf!

Many years later when Grace is 17, a boy is killed by a wolf, and there is a hunting party to kill the wolves.Grace’s wolf ( Sam ) is grazed by a bullet, and turns human and stumbles into Grace’s house. Once his wound heals, he tells her that he and and the others are were-wolves.But one great mystery is that Grace was bitten by a wolf and she never changed, and if the other were-wolves found out, and thought she had the answer to be de-wolfed, who knows how far they would go to get the cure that is not there…( dramatic music.)

This book is also slightly romantic ( ahh ) but at they same time has a blood pumping beat to it that will keep you gripped as tight as a, a, a mussel when the tide is out, being pretty tight.

The message from this book is that be grateful for who you are and that things could be much worse, so don’t worry. A bit like in Mango’s review of the Parent Agency ( which I have read and is Brilliant ), be great full for the person you are, it’s the best your gonna get, and even if you don’t like you life now and then, you do really.

In my point of view, I would not like to be a were-wolf, as you would get confused to as who you were – though if I could design my wolf self, I would be white with black markings! So what would you choose, to be human or were-wolf?Shiver picshiver
