Description


What shall we do, all of us? all of us passionate girls who fear crushing the boys we love with our mouths like caverns of teeth, our mushrooming brains, our watermelon hearts?

In these nine tales of transformation, what's real is what's imagined, and the seemingly ordinary gleams with the magic of possibility.
