Shiver- Maggie Stiefvater
Sam, a werewolf from age 7, can't help but watch Grace from his wolf form every winter. It seems safer than during the summer when he's human. Grace is his forever summer girl he has never spoken to until the night he is shot and everything changes.
This book is a fresh take on werewolves and it is a wonderful romance. The sexual overtones makes it high school appropriate (not middle school). It is also the first book in a trilogy. It leaves you wondering how Grace and Sam's love will survive.
P.S. There are an amazing book trailers on YouTube that Maggie Stiefvater did for this series.They are beautiful! There are also playlists that go with every book. I know it sounds like Twilight, but they are beautifully written!
