It has to be.

<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">EXCERPT FROM SHIVERThat night I lay in bed and stared at the window, my blinds pulled up so I could see the night sky. One thousand brilliant starspunched holes in my consciousness, pricking me with longing. I could stare at the stars for hours, their infinite depth pullingme into a part of myself that I ignored during the day.Outside, deep in the woods, I heard a long, keening wail, and then another, as the wolves began to howl. More voices pitchedin, some low and mournful, others high and short, an eerie and beautiful chorus. I knew my wolf's howl; his rich tone sangout above the others as if begging me to hear it.My heart ached inside me, torn between wanting them to stop and wishing they would go on forever. I imagined myself thereamong them in the golden wood, watching their heads tilt back to the endless stars. I blinked a tear away, feeling foolishand miserable, but I didn't go to sleep until every wolf had fallen silent.

Horn Book Review

Grace is an ordinary teenage girl who happens to be obsessed with the wolves inhabiting the woods behind her Minnesota home. Or is she? There's one wolf in particular, the one with the yellow eyes, whom Grace longs to see each winter. When a local boy is killed by the pack and a vigilante wolf hunt ensues, Grace rescues her wolf in his human form, as the wounded boy Sam. Lamia impeccably captures the voice of a young woman falling in love, ratcheting Stiefvater's lyrical story up a notch. Her narration is at once cautious and bold, feeling her way through the intensity of Grace's emotions. As the voice of the werewolf Sam, Ledoux uses a careful, singsong manner to reveal Sam's inner thoughts, though he never quite hits the mark. Still, the audio as a whole is engaging, bringing out the book's sensory and sensual elements. Twilight fans should be thrilled to hear this love story read aloud. From HORN BOOK, (c) Copyright 2010.
