The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

The Gathering

Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students–for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.
Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya’s determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya’s home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts experiencing “bad vibes” about certain people and things. It does’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.

I've borrowed the summary from Kelley Armstrong's website. Maya is the main character of the book. She has a strange birthmark and she's great with animals. Better than most people. She's living with her adoptive parents in a very small town in the forest. She loves living so close to nature. Unfortunately not everything is great about her life as the previous year her best female friend passed away. She hangs out with her best friend Daniel most of the time. Things are getting strange when Rafe moves into a remote cottage in the forest, he's new in town, which rarely happens. 
Rafe wants to talk to Maya. At first she doesn't want to have anything to do with him, but gradually she warms up to him. Daniel doesn't like him very much. When a journalist comes sniffing around and Rafe finally gets his chance to talk Maya's world suddenly looks very different. She has a lot of questions, about herself and about her heritage. The book ends with a fantastic adrenaline rush. There's nobody who can write them as well as Kelley Armstrong. I can't wait to find out what happens next.
