Lacy's life with her mother Cheyenne was dark and unstable until the day Cheyenne disappeared without a trace. Now, after three years with her father and stepmother, Lacy's no longer an angry, self-destructive loner -- and then Cheyenne comes back.
Forced to leave the home she loves, sixteen-year-old Lacy knows that living with her mother could revive the hard, unhappy girl she used to be. What she doesn't know is that her mother will do anything she can to keep control of Lacy's heart and soul. Between her erratic behavior and her boasts of dabbling in black magic, Cheyenne can't be the mother Lacy needs -- but Lacy feels increasingly powerless to withstand her influence. Just what kind of hold does Cheyenne have on her? And can Lacy break that hold before her life spirals out of control?
WHAT THE BUTTERFLY KNOWS is a powerful young adult novel of a young woman's struggle for independence from her mother, with strong elements of magical realism -- think Francesca Lia Block meets GLIMPSE.
