Teen Reviewed: In the Time of the Butterflies

In the Time of ButterfliesTitle:  In the Time of the Butterflies

Author: Julia Alvarez

Summary: In the Time of the Butterflies tells the story of the four Mirabal sisters in the Dominican Republic who fought to find love, protect their families, and take down the cruel dictator, Trujillo.

I started reading for a book group that I’m in.

In a yearbook, the main character(s) would be voted most likely to:  Bring down the dictatorship and become president.

This book reminded me of Night by Elie Wiesel because the characters in both books question their faith, and because the writing styles were very similar.
