Book Giveaway: The Butterfly Clues

The Butterfly Clues
by Kate Ellison

A clever new debut that will take your breath away and leave you at the edge of your seat frantically turning the pages! I was hooked from the opening pages and could not put this one down.

Author Kate Ellison has written a teen tour de force with a quirky heroine who soon finds herself in way over her head when she sets out to solve a murder using the "butterfly clues." Someone is after Penelope (Lo) and she'll need to control her anxiety and compulsive behavior and keep her wits about her in order to stay alive!
