Code Name: Butterfly – Ahlam Bsharat (translated by Nancy Roberts)


“Bsharat draws readers into the lives of her protagonist, her family, and her friends, revealing the contradictions and conflicts of living under occupation.” – The Pirate Tree

SKU: 9781911107026 Category: Tag:


With irony and poignant teenage idealism, Butterfly draws us into her world of adult hypocrisy, sibling rivalries, girlfriends’ power plays, unrequited love…not to mention the political tension of life under occupation. As she observes her fragile environment with all its conflicts, Butterfly is compelled to question everything around her. Is her father a collaborator for the occupiers? Will Nizar ever give her the sign she’s waiting for? How will her friendship with the activist Mays and the airhead Haya survive the unpredictable storms ahead? And why is ‘honour’ such a dangerous word, anyway?
