I've been seeing this one around for a few weeks, and I have to say I love the cover and the fairy tale quality of the story.
Then I got an e-mail from Elise at Reading Rocks alerting me to the fact that someone has put an ARC of the book, due in hardcover on August 1st, up on ebay (read the whole story on Maggie's blog).
I am completely against selling ARCs (though should I make an exception for NYC's The Strand bookstore since I hear publishers themselves actually dump ARCs there?) and though it can be hard to figure out what to do with ARCs you don't need anymore, I try to either pass mine on to other reviewers, give them to friends, or donate them to charity. I know some say you should destroy them, but I am incapable of hurting a book!
In any case, here is the summary of Shiver:
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.
You can pre-order SHIVER from Amazon by clicking here. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can pick up a copy of this at BEA. Maggie is signing at the Scholastic booth on Saturday from 3:30-4:30 pm so hopefully I can fit that in!
