The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for YA Book Prize 2017 | Stand By Me meets We Were Liars - a heartbreaking and stunning breakout novel for teenagers from the award-nominated author of Seed tells the story of June who feels she is trapped in her unhappy home life until she makes a secret friend who gives her hope.
Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield
June's life at home with her stepmother and stepsister is a dark one - and a secret one. Not even her father knows about it. She's trapped like a butterfly in a jar. But then she meets Blister, a boy in the woods. And in him, June recognises the tiniest glimmer of hope that perhaps she can find a way to fly far, far away. But freedom comes at a price...
Paper Butterflies is an unforgettable read, perfect for fans of Lisa Williamson's The Art of Being Normal, Jandy Nelson, Sarah Crossan, Jennifer Niven and Louise O'Neill.
It broke my heart over and over. Destined to be one of THE most important books this year. Melinda Sailsbury, author of The Sin Eater's Daughter
A gripping and harrowing tale...best YA proof I've read this year. Charlotte Eyre, The Bookseller
