Botanical gardens host launch for

young adult novel by Carpenter

The book launch for “Butterfly Bones” by Rebecca Carpenter will from 3–5 p.m. Friday at the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens, 641 Struthers Ave.

The first 10 people to attend the event will receive goody bags, and there will be tours of the garden’s butterfly pavilion.

Carpenter’s young adult/science fiction novel is the first in her Metamorphosis series and follows 15-year-old Bethany Keatley.

“Desperate to leave the small-minded town of Springs, Georgia, Bethany avoids the bullies at school by achieving high grades and through the protection of her gorgeous quarterback friend Jeremiah,” according to information from Lakewater Press.

A new girl in town, unrequited love and an accelerant added to her daily shot of butterfly hormone all combine to complicate things for Bethany.
