Profile Picture

Martika Gálvez looks like any other Latina girl in L.A. except for her eyes. They are amber, catlike eyes like none she has ever seen before. She senses that she is different, but her parents will not tell her why her eyes are the color they are or whom she may have inherited them from. She is left in the dark until the day after her quinceañera, or fifteenth birthday. Then her mother chooses to tell her of their significance to ease her mind. What Martika learns explains the strange dreams she has been having and launches her into a dangerous adventure.
