Book Review – 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 net. 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 from home and be free. Because every creature in this world deserves their freedom . . . but at what price?
I have been given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Oh. My. Gosh!!! This story is so touching on so many levels, it is difficult to know where to start to talk about it. I don’t want to write spoilers in this review. The work of this incredible writer deserves to be absorbed without any interruptions at all, it’s that good.
The sadness and fear that June feels at time seep off the page and into your own soul. As does the happiness she feels with Blister.
The way that this writer has crafted her words make this a truly moving story that any adult or child would read and have their soul touched by. A stunning book.
A five out of five star read.
I’m profoundly grateful to Netgalley and Electric Monkey for my copy of this book.
