After a falling out, two friends reunite for a long-planned road trip through Brazil. As they drive from town to town, the complications of their friendship resurface. At the novel's center is a romance, as Bensimon offers an intimate look into identity, love and desire. By the end of the trip, the women must decide what the future holds, in a queer, coming-of-age debut novel that has been celebrated in Brazil.

Translated from the Portuguese by Beth Fowler.
