Reviewed by Astrid Iustulin for Readers' Favorite

When Carmen and her brother Quincy moved with their mother from New York to the outskirts of Hilltop Heights, they could not have foreseen their life would be turned upside down. During Carmen's 16th birthday party, something unexpected happens: her mother is killed, and her brother is kidnapped. This is only the beginning of a series of events that will uncover long-hidden family secrets. Violence and resentment are the main ingredients of this short and intense story which you can discover with Carmen and the other memorable characters in Charmaine Wilmore's book, Butterfly in the Mist.

Butterfly in the Mist by Charmaine Wilmore is not for the faint of heart. Although the book is short, a lot goes on in these pages. What I liked most about Butterfly in the Mist is that there is not a dull moment or a superfluous word in the adventures of Carmen, Quincy, and the others. Wilmore has favored action over descriptions that would have bogged down the reading, and the result is that you read the book with bated breath. Personally, I did not know what to expect page after page, but Wilmore's way of writing invited me to go on and discover the whole story and the correlations between the characters. I also liked how their points of view are often intertwined, thus giving a complete picture. Overall, this is one of those stories that lovers of action, who do not mind a bit of violence, will enjoy. For my part, I highly recommend it.
