Harvest Moon by Krista D. Ball

Dancing Cat is considered cursed and everyone in her tribe treats her like dirt. She makes a prayer to her ancestors pleading for a better future and gets turned into a man for her efforts.
This is a sweet little story which takes place in Northern Alberta with Native American elements to it, which gives it a mystic feel. The author managed to put together a good story in a small amount of space although there could have been a lot more exploration if the story had been longer.
Despite the short length of the story, Dancing Cat is a very realistic feeling character. I was able to feel sorry for her initial plight and was somewhat amused by her predicament of being turned into a man.
I look forward to longer pieces from this author *hint hint wink wink*.
