This book gets big points for
originality and has several
decent plot twists. Readers
may not be completely satisfied
with the conclusion, but will still
find it worth reading.
Grace was attacked by wolves as a small child but has never gotten over her fascination with them -- especially the one with the yellow eyes. Sam is a wolf by winter, a boy by summer, and he watches Grace from the woods, and tries to get up the nerve to talk to her in the summer. He's the one who rescued Grace from the other wolves, and they've loved from a distance for years. Once they meet they will do anything it takes to keep from being separated again.
