Story Summary

Chinami's mom's new boyfriend is a fish. How awkward is that. The humiliation, the embarrassment, that is until Mr. "Mac" Kerel, addresses the school assembly about climate change with the perspective that only a fish could have - the dying coral reefs, the islands of plastic. Maybe having a fish in the family won't be so bad after all.
