The Patron Saint of Butterflies by Cecilia Galante
Agnes and Honey have been best friends for as long as they can remember. But everything is about to change, from their friendship to the only home they’ve ever known: a religious commune called Mount Blessing. Agnes loves being a believer and following the rules of the commune, but Honey has started to rebel. Then, when Agnes and Honey experience the outside world (on the run, no less), their friendship is tested further. After all, when everything you’ve ever known turns out to be a lie, how do you find the truth? A powerful story of faith, doubt, abuse, and above all, friendship.
Hmm I don't feel that either of these covers capture the feel I get from the summary. I like how the hardcover is more serious and introspective but it is missing something very important that the paperback has, both of the main characters. But the paperback makes the story seem a lot more lighthearted than the summary does.
Thanks to Alyssa who suggested this H vs P!
