At the beginning of the book, Blue is a young girl who wants to leave her hometown to follow her dream to New York. She hopes to find her birth father, but she also hopes to make history by becoming the world’s first black ballerina. Her touching, heart-warming story is inspired by the struggles of some of the world’s best black ballerinas who managed to build a career and impress the public with their talent. It is almost impossible to reach such a goal when people judge you for the color of your skin instead of focusing on your talent and dedication. Just like Raven Wilkinson, Lauren Anderson, Tai Jimenez, or Misty Copeland, Precious Blue has to fight for a place on the stage. Will she succeed in convincing the world that she was born to dance and that the ballet is not exclusively an art for white girls?
On her journey to success, Blue Johnson will make friends and enemies, find true love, and face a dark past that threatens to destroy her future. Marian L. Thomas’s book is an amazing blend of romance, tragedy, black history, and fast-paced action. Her books have always impressed readers with thought-provoking themes of race, discrimination, betrayal, family strife, or abuse, and ‘Blue Butterfly’ is just as powerful as her other novels. Those who have read ‘My Father’s Colors’ or ‘Strings of Color’ know that the author writes about strong female characters who are ready to work hard and fight to achieve their dreams.
