NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR by the New York Public Library - Kirkus Reviews - Booklist - Publishers Weekly

In this gorgeous debut graphic novel, fairy tales are the only way one boy can communicate with his Vietnamese immigrant parents. But how will he find the words to tell them that hes gay? A powerful read about family, identity and the enduring magic of stories.

"One of the most astounding graphic novels of the year -Entertainment Weekly

Tien and his mother may come from different cultures--shes an immigrant from Vietnam still struggling with English; hes been raised in America--but through the fairy tales he checks out from the local library, those differences are erased.

But as much as Tiens mothers English continues to improve as he reads her tales of love, loss, and travel across distant shores, theres one conversation that still eludes him--how to come out to her and his father. Is there even a way to explain what hes going through in Vietnamese? And without a way to reveal his hidden self, how will his parents ever accept him?

This beautifully illustrated graphic novel speaks to the complexity of family and how stories can bring us together even when we dont know the words.

"A lyrical masterpiece." -BuzzFeed
