Maggie Stiefvater’s “Shiver” could be the next teen werewolf movie sensation

We’ve mentioned Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver here at NNT before … now, it’s been reported that Unique Pictures has acquired the movie rights to her novel, the first in a trilogy:

It’s only been in stores since August, but Magie Stiefvater’s quickly best-selling Young Adult novel Shiver is headed for the big screen.shiver_cover

Variety reports that Unique Features has picked up the movie rights to Shiver – the first in a planned trilogy about a human-werewolf romance.

Sound familiar? It should. Supernatural books are huge right now in Young Adult literature – thanks in large part to Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling Twilight Saga and its feature film franchise. Sure, Twilight is mostly about vampires – but any fan will tell you that werewolves are also a big part of the series, especially starting with the second book, New Moon. (The movie adaptation “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” is due in theaters November 20th).

Shiver tells the story of Grace and Sam. As a girl, Grace is saved by a yellow-eyed wolf. For years, she watches the wolves in the woods behind her house – until one day, she meets a boy with eerily familiar yellow eyes. He is her wolf – blessed with taking his human form in the summer. The two fall in love, but as winter approaches again – supernatural forces threaten their romance.
