Published: Scholastic Inc. - April 29th, 2014

Teen girl falls for boy werewolf. Angst follows. Yet Stiefvater again twists the tropes in this character driven story, told from alternating points of view of Sam and Grace, where the only villain is the way life is, and how little you can do to change it. An introspective story about grappling with your future, written in Stiefvater's signature poetic style. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
