Sea Monsters by Chloe Aridjis

"Sea Monsters" is a captivating narrative that follows a 17-year-old girl who runs away from her comfortable life in Mexico City to join a group of Ukrainian dwarves who have escaped from a Soviet circus. Set in the 1980s, the story is a surreal exploration of freedom, self-discovery, and the blurred lines between reality and imagination. The protagonist's journey to a beach town in Oaxaca becomes an exploration of her inner world as much as the outer one, revealing her thoughts, dreams, and fears in a deeply introspective manner.
