*REVIEW ARC* Butterfly Migration By Mia Castile
By Mia Castile
The worst day of Lacey Baxter’s life was the day her parents announced their divorce and her boyfriend Chase Livingston went into a coma. Scratch that. The worst day of her life was two months later, when he woke up and didn’t recognize her. Now, as he pushes her away, she clings to the hope that each day will be the day he remembers how much they love each other. Turning to her new BFF Byron and his circle of friends, she does whatever she can to cope with the changes. She just wants to be numb and forget about everything.
The headaches, the panic attacks, the pressure to be this perfect boyfriend are incredibly hard for Chase to bear. He doesn’t love Lacey, or at least he doesn’t think he does. Still, he doesn’t understand this strong attraction to her, or the jealousy he feels over every guy that talks to her. Losing two years of his memory means strangers think they know him and he’s not sure where he fits in. Will his memories come back over time or all at once? Should he even wish for them?
Finding each other again could be harder than either of them thought, especially when everyone knows their business and has an opinion about it.
**This is a Mature YA Series, containing subjects concerning addictions and sexual content.**
I was given an ARC for an honest review.
The Butterfly Migration is the 3rd book in the Butterfly Chronicles series.I have been hooked since the day I read Becoming A Butterfly and have stayed hooked.With each book Mia delves deeper into the true trials of what teenagers go through and their reactions to it.Its not sugar coated and that's a truly amazing thing.Imagine the love of your life in a coma waking up and not knowing who you are?Imagine the love of your life thinking it is 2 years back in the past.This is what Lacey has to deal with.Not only that but her father and mother divorced and her sister went with her mother and Lacey stayed with her father who has pretty much abandoned her.Can you truly imagine what happens when all this implodes on Lacey?
I have been a fan of Mia's for quite awhile now...I recall my first book being Mia's Generations series..then I moved on to The Ocean..then Finally to her Butterfly Chronicles Series..and while waiting for The Butterfly Migration I had the pleasure of reading Something More.With each passing book Mia gives you more.She gives you emotion,depth,amazing character development.Her books are the type of books you drown in.The kind where the outside world disappears and you are completely and utterly sucked in.I am utterly thrilled with The Butterfly Migration.I did have a bone to pick about how it ended,Some may not enjoy it.Some may want to cry.I myself almost cried when it was over.I was like NO!Im not ready for it to be over!Some will understand that there will be a following book.Some..like myself will gracefully pretend she did not just throw a mini tantrum because one of her favorite authors is making me wait until book 4 to read more about Lacey and Chase.
This is a wonderful continuation to the series and one I think everyone will love.You MUST read Becoming A Butterfly and Butterfly Kisses first though prior to The Butterfly Migration.I repeat it is NOT a stand alone.As always Mia Castile has done a WONDERFUL job and I look forward and am on pins and needles waiting for her coming books!Congratulations,Mia job well done!
