An uplifting story in verse follows the experiences of a young orphan in modern China who spends her days with an adoptive parent and wishes that her Mama and she could leave Tianjin and live with Daddy in Montana.

"Red Butterfly is raw honesty interwoven with hope, as layered as life itself. This book deeply moved me."

Zusammenfassung
A young orphaned girl in modern-day China discovers the meaning of family in this inspiring story told in verse, in the tradition of Inside Out and Back Again and Sold.

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, Red Butterfly is the story 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.
