In A Gold Friend we follow nine-year-old Victor, an outsider who is having trouble finding his place in the world. He has no friends, until without his father’s consent, he buys a goldfish. There are only two places where little Victor feels safe. For as long as he can remember, he has adored Lisette’s curious goldfish store in his village. The other place where he likes to hang around is the canal, which reminds him of walks with his mom. Victor’s dad, however, wants him to go straight home after school. Will his father discover Victor’s new friend? How is Victor going to react?
