I think I read the book between 2009 and 2013. The main character is a boy who finds out he can transform into a bear (grizzly?) and then joins other teens who have the same power (I remember a girl who could transform into a (black?) cat and a kinda nerdy boy whose animal form was some kind of (blue?) lobster or crab). There was also some kind of organisation which acted as the main antagonist.
I also remember the others being worried about the main characters animal form (something about him being able to control himself?)

I'm happy for any help! Whenever I try to google it I keep ending up with an Animorph novel (which I'm pretty sure it wasn't).

Marina | 8 comments It didn't come out until 2016, but maybe Under My Skin or another book in the series?

Kelina | 22 comments this actually might be it! it came out 2012, so it would fit the time frame :) I'll try and find a sample so I can be sure :)

Here's the Google Books preview of Under My Skin by Charles de Lint - Marina's suggestion:

So thank you very much marina and kris! (somewhere along the way the mountain lion must have transformed into a bear in my memories :D)
