Becoming a Butterfly discusses a topic that I'm sure many would have jumped at the chance if they could've gotten away with it. We learn that Lacey has been nothing shy of an outcast, with her braces, bad acne, glasses, and all that UN-jazz. She definitely received her fair share of getting picked on and teased. In fact, it was a yearly tradition for her to get thrown into a pool.
Lacey's mother has always taken great care of her and her sister, buying them the best of the best. It's when the braces come off and the skin starts to clear, not to mention no more glasses, that she just so happens to start getting noticed for other reasons. When a small, spur of the moment idea that her friends concocted was acted out, it landed Lacey in a tough position. Lacey now had an all new identity. Going by the name of Farrah, and dressing up in a wig, Lacey realized that people liked her so much more. She could talk to everyone online and they wouldn't know the difference. Getting caught up in her own scheme of things, Lacey doesn't notice when her sister starts struggling with issues of her own. Lacey's identity could backfire at any moment, while her sister is screaming for help, yet nobody is listening. Lacey doesn't realize how many lives she is effecting. They are all about to come crashing down. Just what will become of it? In Becoming a Butterfly, you will learn how things effect people differently and how things can blossom from unexpected places.
