The Tank Presents:

AND THE LIGHTS OF THE BOREALIS WERE SHINING

By Lizz Mangan

 

The agreement was simple: Bee would live with Al, a talking polar bear, for a year. In exchange, her family would be blessed with incredible wealth. All this comes with a contract, however, and when Bee unknowingly breaks the terms, she is left alone and determined. With the help of strangers and a bit of magic, Bee embarks on a journey to rediscover the person she thought she knew, and maybe even discover what her own worth is. An adaptation of East of the Sun, West of the Moon.
