I have seen the butterflies and I do follow and understand what this author is saying. Thank you for writing this book Jorja. It came to me at a time when I truly needed it

    5. One of the great books I have read in a long time. The character were great and I felt like they were real. I just loved Lizzy (not just cause we share a name lol) and the growth she had. It was like I was growing with her. Dee was a great person and friend to Lizzy. It was like I was there living in their world. I can't wait to read more from Jorja. I would tell all my family and friends they need to read this book. It made me laugh and cry.

    6. An amazing book written by an amazing author. I actually read the book in a day but it was so enlightening that I had to read it a second time. I grew up with the author in the small town so reading her book brought back so many memories of my younger days. I can't wait for her next book to be released. Kerp up the great writing. Love it!

    9. What a wonderful story about what is really important in life and how so often the most wonderful things come from the things that weren't planned. The author connects with you on such an emotional level you find yourself felling like you honestly know the characters. I found myself laughing, crying and cheering right along with the girls. To be blessed enough to have a friendship that opens your eyes to things you would have never seen and to live out loud like you never thought you could is re [...]

    10. This was an excellent read! It really hit home for me and because it hit so close to me, it took me a little longer to read but I really enjoyed it. It really shows that even when things don't go just as you imagined, there can be even better things that open up to you. Even though life can be hard to survive and even though things don't always turned out as planned, better things do come along ones you never could have imagined. I really recommend this book to everyone. This will be one I read [...]

    11. This is a must read for any girl who has survived young love and healed to love again! Ms. Oliva has a way of taking you into the world that quickly swept her up as you share her trials, fears, successes and her ability to see the beauty in all things unseen and small. The hardest part about this book was putting it down and then wanting to continue to read when it came to an end. Loved the characters, her way of making sure the value of each person real and more lovable I would recommend this b [...]

    12. Chasing Butterflies is a well-told story that truly reminded me of Lisa Verge Higgins' books. Definitely a "New Adult" novel, it's colorful, honest and inspirational in its innocence. Lizzy and Dee discover true friendship - that rare and valuable relationship that transcends broken hearts, lost loves and even death. Over rough roads and sandy beaches, this duo grows up and into adulthood with strength and integrity. Bravo for Oliva's debut novel.

    13. I am an avid reader and read this book in less than a day!! I couldn't put it down.e characters are so alive. I was on this journey with them, Jorja did an incredible job of bringing each and every character (no matter how small or large a part they played) to life. I laughed, I cried, I recognized the best and worst things about growing up in a small town. I can't wait for book #2 to come out!! Loved it!!

    14. Such a innocent readBeautiful bookIt took me a little longer to finish this book because it took me longer to get into the story. However, once you get into the story it is heart touching. The saying 'never judge a book by its cover' is right. I never expected to read the story I did judging by the cover. I will have to read book 2 now just to see what it is all about.

    15. Enchanting, engaging, summer reading bliss!
