就像一隻落入網中的蝴蝶,脆弱而無助。
世界上每個生物應得到應有的自由,但代價是甚麼?

「身體裡好像有一隻蝴蝶用力地拍著翅膀,漸漸地牠充斥整個空間,就快哽著我的咽喉了,但我不會因此而停下,不會輸給牠。」

父親的再婚,也許是一個美好的新起點,不過對瓊來說完全不是這麼回事。在父親面前,與繼母、繼姐的相處無比融洽,但當父親轉身走出家門之後,噩夢便拉開了序幕,黑暗、厭惡、羞辱……。

瓊的校園生活也如同一場夢魘。「她是白,我是黑」,所有人譏笑著在她黝黑的皮膚上刷上一層層白色顏料,讓她「融入」這個班級。老師們、校長的視若無睹,同學們無情的霸凌,沒人出手拯救無助的她。倉皇的心靈,想逃,逃離這學校,逃離這一切。

一次出遊,瓊闖入了一座森林,在那裏她遇見了畢里斯特。他的生活,有許多瓊嚮往的事情:不用上學面對同學,還擁有一個雖然吵鬧但卻又甜蜜的大家庭。在畢里斯特身上,瓊看見了一絲希望的微光,她不禁想:也許有一天我能飛離,飛離家,飛離這張網,飛向自由。

來自《種子社區》(Seed)作者麗莎•希斯菲爾德的全心力作《紙蝴蝶》(PAPER BUTTERFLIES),令人心碎與震撼的情節,探討現今社會中與青少年相關的種種議題:重組家庭裡青少年的想法與心裡,以及校園霸凌、膚色議題所帶來的影響與省思。親情、友情、愛情交織成長下的青少年們,將如何學會勇敢、面對,如何追求夢想與自由?
被譽為《站在我這邊》(Stand By Me)與《騙徒》(We Were Liars)的完美相遇,《紙蝴蝶》將帶領徘徊中的青少年們展翅高飛。
