Happy Release Day, RED BUTTERFLY!

The title of this post pretty much says it all. RED BUTTERFLY's birthday is here, so it's time for a celebration! I fell in love with an early draft of Amy's book from the very first poem, and now I can't wait to hold the real, live book in my hands (and to see Amy June Bates's accompanying illustrations!).

A brief summary from Goodreads:

Kara never met her birth mother. Abandoned as an infant, she was taken in by an American woman living in China. Now eleven, Kara spends most of her time in their apartment, wondering why she and Mama cannot leave the city of Tianjin and go live with Daddy in Montana. Mama tells Kara to be content with what she has…but what if Kara secretly wants more?

Told in lyrical, moving verse, Kara’s story is one of a girl learning to trust her own voice, discovering that love and family are limitless, and finding the wings she needs to reach new heights.


I've already pre-ordered my copy, but I want to buy your copy, too! (To be more precise, I want to buy one of you a copy. I wish I could buy all of you a copy, but I'm afraid I'm not J.K. Rowling.) To enter, just leave a comment below. I haven't bought it yet, so this contest is open internationally (provided that your country is on The Book Depository's list). It closes in one week, on Monday, February 9, at 11:59 p.m. EST. I'll announce the winner the next day!

This book sounds amazing.I can somewhat relate with the character of this book because I too was adopted at birth.I love inspirational stories that show us that no matter what life brings we can always find blessings.

This sounds wonderful! So happy for A.L. Sonnichsen! It seems a lot of people whose names I've seen on writing blogs (or whose blogs I've followed personally) are getting published this year.
