Chapter 27

Sam – 38°F

  • Grace's parents are home, so Grace has to sneak Sam inside.
  • In Grace's room, Sam tries to get up the courage to tell Grace that this is his last year as a human.
  • He even has the perfect opportunity, when they start talking about some of the other wolves' final transitions.
  • But he still can't say it.
  • However, Grace almost starts crying and Sam realizes “she'd known all along” (27.55).
  • To push aside the sadness, Sam and Grace hop into bed and steam up the sheets a bit.
