Like many little girls, Adam dreams of being a mermaid and marrying a prince. But Adam was born a boy. Or so everyone else seems to think. When reality is not to Adam’s liking he retreats into a fairytale winning Prince Eric’s love, despite a mermaid tail. Meanwhile Adam’s parents are pulled in all directions as they grapple with keeping their son safe or giving Adam the freedom to be who she is.
