Linger, by Maggie Stiefvater (Scholastic, 2010)

With Sam apparently cured of being a werewolf, he and Grace can finally try dating like normal people. Unfortunately, her parents don’t entirely approve of the fresh relationship, some of the townspeople of Mercy Falls are still out to weed out the local wolves, and the new additions to the pack, including a musician named Cole, aren’t coping too well with their transformations. Worst of all, Grace is falling ill, and her only cure may be a death sentence in its own right. Stark imagery and a rich attention to color and shadow, coupled with intense emotional moments make this more than your typical teen werewolf romance.
