The summer of 1969 predates me by several years, but reading “Butterflies are Free” gave me a great feel for what it was like to come of age in such a turbulent era. Lena Thumble, the story’s protagonist, hates her parent’s plan for conformity so much that she runs away and embarks on a cross-country trip to New York; to her, a historic concert filled with protest music is far more important than marrying a banker and buying a house with a white picket fence. The journey isn’t easy, though. Lena still loves her parents, and leaving them behind also means breaking off her fledgling romance with a local reporter. Authentic, relatable stuff. Well-worth a read.
n the time of bellbottoms and Woodstock, many people wanted nothing more than to be heard. For many it was messages of world peace, for many it was the push for equality among people, but for some it was simply a desire to prevent unfair judgment cast upon them by those same people who preached equality and fairness. In Debby Lee’s ‘Butterflies Are Free’ the heroine, Lena, wants nothing more than to be heard.For the rest of the article visit: http://www.examiner.com/books-in-atla...
