Katie Arneson is faking cancer. A university dance major, Katie’s falsified diagnosis and counterfeit fundraising transform her into a campus celebrity surrounded by the supportive community she’s always dreamed of: a close-knit group of friends, security in her academic pursuits, and a caring relationship with her girlfriend. Dependent upon an university bursary for sick students to maintain her deepspun ruse, Katie learns the funding is in jeopardy unless she can present copies of her medical records within the week. With no such records in extant, a panicked Katie descends into a spiral of misguided decisions that further entrench her deceit.
