Avery Fallyn was your normal seventeen-year-old American girl, living a normal life in Crescent Falls, the town she'd lived in her whole life. All of that changed when Xander Hawkes - the insanely gorgeous, should-be-a-model new guy - moves into town. That's when the weird things start happening. Not only does Avery have to worry about waking up in the middle of the woods behind her house almost every night, but she also has to worry about the panther that's stalking her. The worst part of it all is that Avery is convinced that Xander is the Panther. Avery's life just got way complicated. But hey, high school's never easy, is it?
