It is a fictional account of the life of a boy named Ulysses, who has been neglected and then orphaned under very stressful circumstances. The story, narrated by his friend Raul, begins during a relatively happy time, at the Mission District of San Francisco. Ulysses lives with his adopted mother, Mireya, who is a very good mother in her way. This story connects themes such as bullying, loneliness, and friendship.

Mam Mireya, a transgender adoptive parent-a he who becomes a she-adopts and rescues Ulysses, a small boy, from abandonment and neglect. Ulysses is thrilled to have the nicest mother in the entire world and learns from her about gender identity in an age-appropriate way. Mireya's kindness and strength to speak her truth, be who she is, inspires Ulysses to have the integrity and fortitude to stand against bullying and denigrating accusations at school. Ulysses learns to love the mother he has, not the mother he thought he was going to get. This book brings an important message of respect and inclusion for all.
