I just didn't care for this book. The story flowed decent enough but the subject matter may leave a bad taste in your mouth. If it's any consolation, I did enjoy learning more about a butterfly life cycle... Overall this book left me more angry at the end than anything else.
The story of a young girl growing up with an alchoholic mother. She finds friendship and love in another single parent family.
I was moved by this book right away. I didnt find the subject matter to be distasteful, Subject matter? It was about a lost girl, Bobbie Lee, aka Roberta, being raised by her alcoholic mother. Her best friend, since 2nd grade, Cynthia, aks Cincy. No not CINDY but Cincy, is a true friend, and takes her home often. Bobbie Lee finds a true mother in Cindy's Mom Lenora. The common bond these girls share is that they are fatherless. Once the girls hit High school they start to drift apart.
The book starts in the present day, and does flash backs to the 70s and 80s, and the milestones, and then tragedy in their lives.
There are some surprise twists and turns. You will enjoy them.
I really didnt learn anything about butterflies and their life cycles, except that they are marvelous, and majestic.
Excellent!! Read in one sitting.
