SHIVER

SHIVER

Maggie Stiefvater
Read by Jenna Lamia, David Ledoux

As if high school weren’t already hard enough without adding werewolves to the mix! This earnest teen romance is presented alternately from Grace’s point of view and from Sam’s, so Jenna Lamia and David Ledoux trade off narrating duties. It’s an effective technique for the audio format. At one point in the story, Grace describes Sam and "the soft, sad shape of his lips, looking just like his voice sounded," which is also a pretty good description for how Ledoux sounds. His funny, appealing, sometimes-wobbly voice is especially appropriate for a conflicted teenaged guy who also happens to be a werewolf. Occasionally overwrought or treacly, SHIVER is sure to appeal to fans of TWILIGHT and other paranormal teen fare. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
