Ami lives on Culion, an island for people who have leprosy. Her mother is infected. She loves her home - but then islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Ami's desperate to return before her mother's death. She finds a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home before it's too late?


Gorgeous book. Lovely ending. Really makes you think. Main character Ami showed real courage and found friendship in Mari. Definitely recommended for use in Y6.
