Forever: Book Review

How can this be over? Oh, HOW?
Book Reivew: Forever
Book by: Maggie Stiefvater
Book Review: Willa Smith
Published: July 12th, 2011
Publisher:  Scholastic Press
     Grace and Sam have switched places - Grace is a wolf, Sam is human - but their love hasn't gone. Sam doesn't know where Grace is, if she survived being bitten, or what happened to her, and it's tearing him apart. Isabelle and Cole can't seem to figure out what is wrong with them. Tom Culpeper has organized a wolf hunt, and Sam knows that it's possible Grace could be there when they start. They have to fight to be together. One. Last. Time.
     When I finished this book, I had to lay in my bed and digest it for a second. I had to realize that there would be no more Grace-Sam-Isabelle-Cole-Wolves books anymore, and that made me tear up. This novel is beautiful. It has a beautiful cover, beautiful characters, beautiful language, a beautiful ending, and a beautiful story. Stiefvater never disappoints! 
     I think that this book definitely taught me something about writing - that you have to make your readers fall head over heels in love with the characters, otherwise you won't really care what happens to them. I love Grace. I love Sam. I love Isabelle and her snarky comments that I wish I could get away with. I even love Cole and his weird self-esteem issues. It all just works somehow, and that is why it is beautiful.

    hey Willa I don't know if you already know but there is this huge
    tournament on The YA Sisterhood blog site where people are voting for the most crush-worthy guy from all these books. It's really fun and the tournament is still going right now they are down to the final 16 guys.
    Some of the guys to vote for are: Jace from the immortal instruments, Jules from Hourglass, St.Clair from Anna and the French Kiss,and Hale from Heist Society.
    So I just thought i'd let you know!!!! :)
