Discussion Post #2 - SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater

This week's discussion revolves around Chapters 19-31.

As a reminder, if you've read ahead, please don't post any spoilers! We want to make sure that everyone has the same opportunity to discover things as you did :). Let's discuss!


* Now that you have more insight into Sam and Grace as characters, what do you think of their relationship? Do you feel any differently about either one of them than you did at the beginning of the book?

* Shiver uses a very common YA trope, where the main character's parents are absent most of the time. Do you think this helps, or hinders, the story line? Would you change it at all?

* In these chapters, Sam shares with Grace a special spot that she couldn't possibly have known about, but did. Do you think this is foreshadowing? Did it take you by surprise?

* This part of the story ends with Sam finding Beck again. What do you think of Beck as a character, and his plan for the pack?


I'm switching it up this year, and not being the first one to write responses! Instead, I'll respond to everything that you write. Now, keep in mind that I've read this book before, so don't worry if my responses are vague. It's just to keep spoilers to a minimum.

Now get to it, and write up your thoughts!
