The Magic Fish by Trung Le Nguyen
Real life isn't a fairy tale. In fairy tales, the prince falls in love with the princess. But Tiến has a different story to tell. His parents are refugees struggling to learn English, and he doesn't know how to come out to them in Vietnamese.
If he doesn't even have the right words, how can he ever know if his parents will accept him?
The answer is in fairy tales - a language that Tiến and his parents share. Tiến learns from his favourite stories as he navigates the world with the help of friends, family, and fairly tales.
