‘So here’s the thing. I didn’t mean for all this to happen. I didn’t mean for someone to die. But what wouldn’t you give to be extraordinary? What would you have said if someone had asked – ‘Do you want to learn how to speak to a butterfly?’ 

Shayamukthy Mukherjee hates being ordinary, but shooting hoops and sighing at boys beats being the odd one out all the time. But one October morning, a new girl walks into class and pulls her off the sidelines. Suddenly Shui finds herself navigating a secret world that defies everything she’s ever been told and having to decide the lengths she’ll go to be extraordinary and the price she’s willing to pay to speak to a butterfly.
