📖 Butterfly: a quick book review

I first read Butterfly when I was about 16 or 17 years old. To my child-like psyche (yes, we used to still be children at that age back then), the book was a bit much, yet absolutely fascinating.

For those of you who haven’t read Butterfly

At its start, the book can somehow weirdly remind you of a cheesy (naughty) romance novel. As you dive in, however, this nuance is lost for good. Butterfly is a book about persistence, dedication, sexual freedom, friendship, success, and revenge. It tells the story of a Southern girl (US), whose traumatic life experiences inevitably make you cringe.

I do not want to spoil it for you, so I will not dive into the details. I would say that Butterfly offers an unlikely point of view, which I personally wish was more explored: the concept of self-reliant empowerment.

The non-native English review: ♥♥♥♡♡
Since English is not my first language, I care about the author’s ability to inspire my language skills while reading the book. Sadly, although I am madly in love with Butterfly, my language skills were not improved while reading it.
