My story starts the day that my parents told me we must leave our adopted home forever. Because of the soldiers and the drought, we barely had enough to eat and we could no longer stay to help the people in our village.

Right before we were leaving I saw a fish in a small brown puddle, and I knew I had to take it with me. The journey would be hard, to cross the mountains get to the safety of the border and the people there who could help us. Yet when I put the fish in the pot I never realized what we would have to face. It never occurred to me to leave Fish behind.

A subtle and sophisticated exploration of life, the strength of humanity, and survival in an unforgiving world, Fish is a story that will teach those who doubt that, when hope is almost extinguished, miracles can happen.

    " Tiger's parents are aid workers in a foreign country wrecked by war. They had to leave their hometown to a refugee camp due to political problems and war.On the day of the family's departure, Tiger rescues a fish from muddy waters and insists that they take it along. The fish is secured in a jar strapped to Tiger's back and becomes a symbol of hope as the family, along with a guide, makes their long travel to the border. Food and water are low, and they encounter with "fighting mens" which gets in their way to safety. I liked this book because this book made me feel sad for the characters and i felt like helping them in some way. People who like short fiction books should read this. "
