Description

Grace e Sam non si sono mai parlati, ma da sempre si prendono cura l'una dell'altro. Non si conoscono, eppure lei rischierebbe la vita per lui, e lui per lei. Perché Grace, fin da piccola, sorveglia i lupi che vivono nel bosco dietro casa sua, e in particolare uno dotato di magnetici occhi gialli, che negli anni è diventato il suo lupo. E perché Sam da quando era un bambino vive una doppia vita: lupo dinverno, umano destate. Il caldo gli regala pochi preziosissimi mesi da essere umano prima che il freddo lo trasformi di nuovo. Grace e Sam ancora non si conoscono, ma tutto è destinato a cambiare: un ragazzo è stato ucciso, proprio dai lupi, e nella piccola città in cui vive Grace monta il panico, e si scatena la caccia al branco. Grace corre nel bosco per salvare il suo lupo e trova un ragazzo solo, ferito, smarrito, con due magnetici occhi gialli. Non ha dubbi su chi sia, né su ciò che deve fare. Perché Grace e Sam da sempre si prendono cura luna dellaltro, e adesso hanno una sola, breve stagione per stare insieme prima che il gelo torni e si porti via Sam unaltra volta. Forse per sempre.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 03, 2009 – Stiefvater leaves the faeries of Lament and Ballad for a lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love. For years, Grace has been fascinated by the yellow-eyed wolf that saved her from its pack when she was a child. Sam, bitten by a wolf as a boy, is that wolf. Long obsessed with each other at a distance, they finally meet after a wolf hunt (inspired by the apparent death of a local teen) sends a wounded and temporarily human Sam into Grace's arms. Their young love is facilitated by Grace's hands-off parents (“Once upon a time, I would've leaped at the rare opportunity of curling up with Mom on the couch. But now, it sort of felt like too little, too late,” Grace muses), but threatened by two linked crises: the fact that Sam will soon lose the ability to become human and the instability of a new lycanthrope. Stiefvater skillfully increases the tension throughout; her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face. Ages 13–up.
