By Maggie Stiefvater

At a young age, Grace was attacked by the wolves that live in the woods behind her house. She survived thanks to one of the pack, "the wolf with the yellow eyes." Jack, a boy bitten by a wolf as a child, is her wolf savior. Since then, both Sam and Grace have remained captivated by one another. But after the apparent wolf attack and killing of Jack, a popular boy at Grace's high school, the town's citizens begin a hunt that leads to Sam being shot. His wound temporarily changes Sam from wolf to human form, and he and Grace finally meet. The two struggle to find a way to keep Sam human so they can stay together, but mysterious events are unfolding around town which threaten to tear them apart forever.

Life As We Knew It

by meteor on a collision course with the moon it seems like no big deal. But after the meteor hits and the moon's orbit is pushed closer to the Earth, nothing will be the same. Natural disasters strike across the globe, and Miranda and her family must begin to deal with a new "normal," as everything they used to take for granted disappears. Food and gas shortages, early arrivals of severe winters, riots, and deaths force everyone to take a close look at what it means to survive.
