The Patron Saint of Butterflies
by Cecilia Galante
Agnes and Honey have been best
friends for as long as they can remember. But everything is about to
change, from their friendship to the only home they’ve ever known: a
religious commune called Mount Blessing. Agnes loves being a believer
and following the rules of the commune, but Honey has started to rebel.
Then, when Agnes and Honey experience the outside world (on the run, no
less), their friendship is tested further. After all, when everything
you’ve ever known turns out to be a lie, how do you find the truth? A
powerful story of faith, doubt, abuse, and above all, friendship.
