Enlighten Me by MINH LÉ.

Could things possibly get any worse? However, when a nun gathers all the kids to tell them the Jataka tales — the stories of the Buddha’s many past lives — Bình takes a fantastical dive into his imagination and starts to see himself in these stories. Will he retreat further into himself, or will he emerge from the weekend open to change?
