Barely knows exist And her friends her worst enemies will tease and test smelling weakness They will try to lead her on and take her down BUTTERFLY is a gripping disuieting beautifully observed coming of age novel by an acclaimed author at the top of her fo This book felt like it didn’t really fit into either a YA or adult category comfortably It was certainly YA than adult but there were very adult type themes that I really wouldn’t want a 14 year old the age of the main character reading The main character also seemed a strange mix of mature and immature being observant of things than I would suspect most 14 year olds are normally but then thinking things that made me roll my eyes because they seem so childish But then perhaps that is just par for the course with most adolescentsIt’s set somewhere in Australia but I don’t recall it ever mentioning specifically where Some of the descriptions are beautiful but that is probably the best part of the storyThis was my second Sonya Hartnett and I enjoyed my first The Children of the King than this one 25★
