Blue Butterfly by Marian L. Thomas

Precious Blue Johnson, young, country and naive, from Lutts County, Georgia, is traveling to the energizing city of New York to search for her birth father and perhaps make history by becoming the first black ballerina.

Her simple mocha skin and thick lips will put her in the center of a movement, expose secrets and unlock the past as she steps onto the stage as the Blue Butterfly.

She will be guided by the vivacious and wise Ms. Ann and fall in love with the alluring Ray Silvers.

Ray brings the whole package. Enchanting eyes, a bright future as a doctor, and a willingness to love completely. To Precious, he is perfect. Except Ray’s package includes his deadly past.

Will their love survive the one person who could end it all—his drug-addicted mother?

First, let me say that Blue Butterfly has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen! That alone had my expectations quite high for the content, and I am so happy to say that the book did not disappoint. Blue Butterfly is a book of perfection.

Precious Blue Johnson’s life was turned upside down when her dad kicks her out of his home. Blue meets Ms. Ann who welcomes her into her home and forever changes her life. Ms. Ann introduces Blue to the world of ballet and and the story soars from there!

Marian Thomas tells a young mixed girl’s life story as she begins to move into a predominately white community. Blue Butterfly is quite believable as any brown girl that has entered a world outside of her own community, will truly be able to relate. Every word seems to sing off the pages. Blue Butterfly is full of emotional depth. I found myself rooting for the characters and cheering for them to overcome and claim the victory!

Blue Butterfly is one of the BEST books I’ve read so far in 2014!
