'They call me Yanka the Bear. Not because of where I was found-only a few people know about that.'
Found abandoned in a bear cave as a baby, Yanka has always wondered where she is from. She tries to ignore the strange whispers and looks from the villagers, whishing she was as strong inside as she is on the outside. When Yanka has to flee her house, looking for answers about who she really is, a journey far beyond anything she ever imagined begins- from icy rivers to smouldering mountains, meeting an ever-growing herd of extraordinary friends along the way.
"Grounded in ancient fairy tales that feel special and true and glistening with the very real magic of love and belonging, this is a gem of a story." Catherine Doyle, author of The Storm Keeper's Island
