Skeleton Dance

By C. Jai Ferry

"My grandmother wanted to kill me..." Despite being harassed in a multitude of ways, a young girl stands up to her grandmother in both small and grandiose ways. Sometimes victorious, but more often not, she ultimately grows into a woman faced with the biggest challenge yet: Follow the well-worn path of the matriarchs in her family or strike out into virgin territory. “Skeleton Dance” is the story of one girl’s perseverance in surviving the eccentricities of her world.
