Sandra J. Jackson’s Catching Butterflies is a dystopian story of siblings April and Beth on their quest to find their way home. After escaping their captor, they found themselves with very little memory of their past. The siblings were at the mercy of nature, surrounded by the forest, and still with a healthy fear of being watched. Filled with their desire to survive and find their family, they rediscovered themselves gradually. The answers they search for were elusive and only brought more questions. The sisters found other youngsters lost in the forest, still reeling from their capture. And just when they thought there’s strength in numbers, they found themselves facing dangers. Book 2 of the Escape Series will surely intrigue readers to find out more about this new world after a pandemic.
Sandra J. Jackson’s Catching Butterflies is an intriguing story. I loved how April described her surroundings as she rediscovered herself and her exceptional abilities. The idea that someone can make you forget simple things such as the names of ordinary objects is terrifying. I felt that what happened to the siblings can happen in the real world and it is chilling to think that a pandemic like the one we are in could just be an introduction to something far more sinister. I am excited to learn more about the youngsters’ future and their abilities. I also loved how loyal and caring Beth’s character is and this made me miss my own sister dearly. I am curious to learn how she will turn out in the next book. I am sure it will be as much of an amazing read as this book.
