Overview

This book tells a story about the main character who learns responsibility and the preciousness of life while taking care of a fish behind her mom’s back.

Book Intro

The main character first saw guppies at her friend Ara’s house. Small and cute, they captivated her heart right away. She got two guppies from Ara and decided to raise them as her first companion animals. But the question remained of how she could persuade her mom who opposes her idea because her mom thinks they're difficult to have around and just never listens to her. Eventually, she kept the guppies in her drawer as her "secret fish," being unable to tell the truth to her mom. Will her project to keep the fish with nobody knowing succeed in the end?

As this unusual challenge unfolds, a sense of responsibility and a love for animals are awakened beyond the frustration and tears experienced while taking care of other living beings.
