Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
A haunting novel about a young girl, Grace, who is in love with a werewolf, Sam. As a child, Grace was attacked by wolves and Sam saved her. Over the years, she would watch for "her wolf" in the woods behind her house. Finally, she meets Sam in his human form, and they fall in love - and must try to find a way to keep him from turning back into a wolf forever.
The tension builds as the book progresses - the temperature is dropping, friends are at risk, and time is running out for Sam.
I definitely recommend this book - a notch above some of the usual YA fare.
Watch for the next book in this series - Linger, coming in July 2010!
