Julia (Friesnburger) | 2 comments I cannot remember this book's name or author, I read it a while ago. It is about this Russian-Jewish girl that is always picked on for her heritage. She has a friend with the same heritage, but becomes popular over the summer and ditches her for her popular friends. As the school year progresses, her mother becomes stressed out with her job and becomes an alcoholic, and the girl's father has to work a lot more.

In the end, I *think* her father divorces the mother, and the mother is angry that her daughter doesn't want a relationship with her anymore. She tries to be nice to her but the mother gets very angry.
The cover of the book is a picture of a (possibly blue) butterfly in a girl's hands .

Thanks!!!
