A tale of magical realism in which two best friends, one who wants to be a professional ballerina and the other who is turning into a bear, confront society's narrow definition of what it means to be feminine and find a way to embrace the wildness in them.

Her best friend, Dawn, is having blackouts and fugues, and experiencing changes in her body and language that point to only one thing - she's turning into a bear. The girls' intense relationship becomes a way for them to confront society's narrow definition of femininity.

Brilliant, unique story that fearless jumps into the world of magical realism.
