Everything seems normal to Maya.  She's an ordinary 16 year old living in a small town.  She doesn't find anything remarkable about herself, except for an odd paw-print birthmark on her hip.  And then, one year, everything goes awry.  First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns.  Then mountain lions start hanging around her house, while Daniel, her other best friend, starts having weird premonitions.  And on top of all this, a sexy new guy shows up in town and he's very interest in her paw print.
