Editorial Reviews


‘Enlightening, funny and affecting, Code Name: Butterfly is a brief story that packs quite a punch.’

Riveting Reads, A World of Books In Translation, School Library Association

‘We look out through the eyes of a 14 or 15-year-old girl who doesn’t know what to think about her eyebrows, much less the two-state solution. We, like her, must start over with new vocabulary. Indeed, if Butterfly has a superpower, it’s her mastery of the power of questions. ... the book’s questions strip not just Butterfly of certainty but also the reader, making it a valuable read for a teen or adult.’

Marcia Lynx Qualey, The National ArabLit

‘… powerful short novel … beautiful, descriptive prose … searingly honest and brave portrayal of the harsh realities of life living under occupation seen through the eyes of the young protagonist who is trying hard to make sense of it all.’

Outside In World-Exploring World Books

‘… the personal squabbles and betrayals at the heart of this novel make for a fascinating and enlightening read...one of the few YA novels available in English that presents life under occupation from the perspective of a Palestinian writer.’

The Pirate Tree: Social Justice and Children’s Literature

I think this book is a great pick for adults as well as teenagers as the story is so insightful and told in a vulnerable, relatable voice.
