When Zoe's Dad, a policeman, is killed in a shoot-out, Zoe and her Mom move from their country home to the college town of Oakland (a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA).

Zoe receives Paki, a plucky African Gray parrot, for her 13th birthday and he helps her set aside her fears and meet new friends.

Toby, a blue-eyed charmer, shows Zoe around Oakland and is her sidekick through some spine-tingling adventures. With her first kiss, Toby is her first love.
