Lately I have been into reading a lot of Young Adult Contemporary novels, and Other People’s Butterflies by Cora Ruskin caught my eye. A story about failing to fit in, juicy gossip, making stupid mistakes, teen drama and learning to love yourself? Count me in.
Thank you Xpresso Book Tours for having me as a tour host for this book. Read on below to get the synopsis for Other People’s Butterflies on GoodReads.
Gwen Foster has never been kissed. But when she gets the chance to finally see what all the hype is about, it’s with her best friend’s crush. Embroiled in relationship drama she doesn’t understand, and ostracized from her friend group, Gwen escapes the angst by using her favorite femme fatale as a role model… and makes snooping on her classmates her new pastime.
Gwen’s detective work appears to be going well, until an unknown social media account starts spilling all the scandalous personal details she’s uncovered. Now this wannabe spy must stop whoever is behind it before everyone’s dirty laundry is aired, and Gwen is forced to finish high school without any friends.
Other People’s Butterflies is a coming-of-age contemporary mystery about not needing to find your first love – but yourself – and how to mend the relationships that matter to you.
