The Patron Saint of Butterflies by Cecilia Galante

Patron Saint of Butterflies

The Patron Saint of Butterflies was unique and fascinating to read from the point of view of teens raised on a religious commune. The story is alternately told from the point of view of Agnes and then Honey, best friends who have grown up together at the commune. Agnes believes the commune’s doctrine, while Honey questions everything. When Honey flees with Agnes’ grandmother, taking an unwilling Agnes along on an adventure to save her little brother’s life, they have a life-changing journey that is satisfying and heartfelt. Highly recommended realistic fiction! Recommended for junior high and up.
