Shiver Chapter 3

By Maggie Stiefvater

Chapter 3

Grace – 38°F

  • Every winter, Grace goes out into her cold backyard—she lives in Minnesota, so it's super cold—and watches the yellow-eyed wolf.
  • He comes out of the woods, but never close enough for her to touch him.
  • She wants to touch him. She's not afraid of him.
  • At the end of the chapter, she says that she never really made a connection about the wolves never appearing in the summer months. “I didn't really think about the time. I thought they were wolves. Only wolves” (3.8).
  • What else could they be? Bunnies? Old retirees spending their summers in Florida?
