An ordinary town … full of deadly secrets

Strange things are happening in Maya’s tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya’s home—and her reactions to them are somewhat … unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations.

It doesn’t help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret, and he’s interested in one special part of Maya’s anatomy—her paw-print birthmark. Combine everything with a mystery involving Maya’s biological parents and it’s easy to suspect that this town might have more than its share of skeletons in its closet.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Diana Thompson | 2/9/2014

    " Read this because it was one of the Ontario Library Association's 2012's White Pine Award nominees for best youth fiction for the year. (I am a high school librarian). I was very pleasantly surprised. Maya is a strong female protagonist. She has a strong sense of identity and does need to deny herself to fit in. She is happy with who she is. I appreciated the humour, especially when dealing with her dad (and family dynamics). I would highly recommend it. I look forward to reading the next one in the trilogy. I will even try some of Armstrong's other books, though I've had no desire to do so in the past. "
