Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

AR Reading Level: 5.4
On the library stacks: YA Fiction
Series: Book 2 of 3 (Wolves of Mercy Falls)
Recommended for: Grades 9+

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Because I'm too afraid of accidentally including spoilers, here's the product description:
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
This is a great second book to the series. It is well-written and entertaining. I enjoyed the four different voices of Grace, Sam, Cole and Isabel, and the story took a direction I wasn't anticipating. I wasn't 100% sold on the green font the book was published in though. I look forward to the finale next year!

So many people love this series, that I want to try it, even though it's out of my comfort zone. I wonder why those chose green text.

I noticed the blue text of the first book for only a little while, but then became so involved in the story, I didn't "see" it anymore. I wonder if that will be possible when it's green!? I'm excited to read this one! I love this author's writing.

This series has so many admirers that it makes me want to give it a try even though I was a bit skeptical when I heard reviews of the first in the series.
