The legend of las mariposas — the beautiful monarch butterflies that every year fly more than two thousand miles on fragile wings to return to their winter home in Mexico — is Luz Avila’s birthright. She learned of their ways and their mystical powers from the grandmother who was the only family she ever knew. Now it is her turn, like the butterflies, to make that long, perilous journey.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing, because the characters lacked depth and the story was not convincing. The best part of the book was the details about Monarch Butterflies.
