"Sixteen year old Lacey was never the center of attention, unless she was tripping, stammering, or being deposited into a pool by the local popular kids. All she wanted was to fit in, until one night when everything changed.
Jade and Tasha, her two best friends, helped her create an online personality that was everything she wanted to be– and it was only the beginning. In doing so, she attracted the attention of Henry, her lifelong crush and next door neighbor. Unfortunately, it was Farrah, her online personality and not herself, he was interested in. 
She also attracted Chase, the brooding, quiet, anti-social new kid of Brownsburg High School, who easily figured out her secret and blackmailed her. They forged a friendship that was both unique and complicated. 
Lacey must decide if revealing herself to Henry and her entire school as the cool, charming, and funny Farrah is worth possibly losing him forever. She finds herself needing to make an even harder decision than she ever thought possible. When did the lines between truth and lies get so blurred?

Becoming a Butterfly is a story about coming of age and finding yourself when you never knew you were lost.

My Thoughts:
Given for an honest review from Entwined Publishing.

I was in a reading rut. I decided to give Becoming a Butterfly a chance. To my surprise I was hooked into the plot. I felt like I was Lacey. She comes off as an insecure girl who is constantly bullied in school by her peers. I could relate to that part of the story. I understood the appeal of her pretending to be Farrah, she was popular and everyone wanted to be her friend. 

I didn't see all the chaos that was brought into the storyline. Really loved the characters and the storyline. I am very grateful to have been given an opportunity to review this. 

Looking forward to reading more in this series and from Mia.
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
