Anika Fajardo was born in Colombia and raised in Minnesota. She wrote a book about that experience, Magical Realism for Non-Believers: A Memoir of Finding Family, which was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award in 2020 and named Best Book (Nonfiction) by City Pages.
 
A writer, editor, and teacher, she lives in
the very literary city of Minneapolis. What If a Fish is her first middle-grade novel.
What if a Fish

A whimsical and unflinchingly honest generational story of family and identity where hats turn into leeches, ghosts blow kisses from lemon trees, and the things you find at the end of your fishing line might not be a fish at all.

MAGICAL REALISM FOR NON-BELIEVERS: A MEMOIR OF FINDING FAMILY

In 1995, Anika Fajardo flew to Colombia to discover a birthplace that was foreign to her and a father who was a stranger. Vivid and heartfelt in the telling, Fajardo’s story is powerfully compelling in its bridging of time and place and in its moving depiction of self-transformation. Family, she comes to find, is where you find it and what you make of it.
