A poetic, dreamy delight: proof that home really is where the heart is. A tale of loyalty, family, hope and getting to choose where you belong. Of all the places you might want to live, a leper colony must be last on the list. Even the pushiest estate agent would struggle to talk it up, right? But for Ami – whose mum is one of the sick – the island of Culion is home. With its blue seas and lush forests, it’s all she’s ever known. But it’s not going to be home for much longer. A new government official has arrived – the malicious Mr Zamora. He says anyone who’s not sick must leave. He doesn’t care if it splits families up. Banished and homesick, Ami is lost, far away – until she finds a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her back home, before it’s too late?
