Once upon a time in a frozen city . . . strangers fall in love,
wishes come true, and lives will never be the same again When his
parents split up, and his dad leaves home, a ten-year-old boy begs
the sky to help him. The next day an ice storm covers his city.
When the power goes out and the temperature drops, people must turn
to each other to survive. But for one neighbourhood the catastrophe
brings surprising new beginnings. Julie, the dancer who lives
across the street, helps Boris, an eccentric Russian mathematician,
save his fish from the cold weather. And the urbane Michel and
Simon open their door to Alexis, their embittered neighbour, and
his son. But will the ice storm bring the boy's parents back
together? Hilarious and heartwarming, Fish Change Direction in Cold
Weather reminds us that happy endings might still be possible.
