The Butterfly Project Blurb:

"Where you are is home..."

At age fourteen, Zelda Rossi witnessed the unthinkable, and has spent the last ten years hardening her heart against the guilt and grief. She channels her pain into her art: a dystopian graphic novel where vigilantes travel back in time to stop heinous crimes—like child abduction—before they happen. Zelda pitches her graphic novel to several big-time comic book publishers in New York City, only to have her hopes crash and burn. Circumstances leave her stranded in an unfamiliar city, and in an embarrassing moment of weakness, she meets a guarded young man with a past he’d do anything to change...

Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime. 

Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love. But when Zelda and Beckett come face to face with their pasts, they must choose to hold on to the guilt and regret that bind them, or let go and open their hearts for a shot at happiness. 

The Butterfly Project is a novel that reveals the power of forgiveness, and how even the smallest decisions of the heart can—like the flutter of a butterfly’s wings—create currents that strengthen into gale winds, altering the course of a life forever. 

Christy's Review:

ALL the stars!!!!!

I have loved every book I’ve read by Emma Scott, but I’ve not read one I’ve loved as much as The Butterfly Project. Beckett and Zelda stole my heart. Not only is this my favorite Emma Scott book to date, it’s my favorite book I’ve read so far this year. Be prepared to feel, to fall in love and to not be able to put this one down!

Zelda Rossi moves from Vegas to NYC to try to make it in the big city. She’s got a graphic novel she’s been working on and she’s trying to get it published. Things aren’t as easy for Zelda as she’d hoped in New York. She has the choice of sticking it out in a city where she knows no one, or packing up and putting her dreams on hold. After meeting Beckett by chance at a restaurant, she decides to stay.

Beckett Copeland works full time as a bike messenger and part time as a bus boy to make ends meet. It’s not easy finding good paying jobs when you have a criminal record. Because of his situation and the past that eats at him every day, Beckett doesn’t get too close to many people, though it’s easy to see right away, he has a heart of gold. When he meets Zelda, he knows there is something special about her. Something he can relate to. Zelda’s past isn’t painless. Though it’s very different than Beckett’s, they are also one of the same in a way.

It felt like I’d lost something I didn’t know I wanted. And I realized you could get used to anything—even being alone for years—right until the moment you touched something better than what you had.
Beckett and Zelda become roommates out of necessity. If Beckett is going to continue to pay his rent and not be stressed, and if Zelda wants to stay in the city- this is the best choice for them both. They quickly forge a friendship. As they start to break down each others walls, that friendship slowly starts to develop into more.

Zelda and Beckett are both broken in different ways. But they’re also both so very strong. Ask me which one I loved more… I couldn’t choose. Beckett has the best heart of any hero I’ve read in a long time. His kindness, regrets, selflessness and love knows no bounds. I love that he’s always there for Zelda and all of the people in his life he cares for. Zelda has had a hard life and I love her determination and perseverance. She is a fierce and standup heroine. As much as Beckett was there for her when she needed him, she was there for him in return.

“I want this for you,” he whispered… “I want everything for you.”

As you can see above, I’ve rated The Butterfly Project off the charts with ‘All the stars!’ I don’t rate that way often. I can think of less than a dozen books out of all the books I’ve read that have gotten this rating from me. This book is so special. Zelda and Beckett are so special. And there are so many side characters that are special. Roy, Darlene, even Aunt Lucille. So many will hold a place in your heart.

The story is out of this world phenomenal. It gave me goosebumps and all the feels. It is so much more than a romance. It’s a story of friendship, and it showcases the way guilt can change a person, but also the way forgiveness can change a person. It is powerful, uplifting, profound and flawless. I loved everything about this book. The writing was magical, the characters were uniquely wonderful and the story itself was epic. I highly recommend this one!
