The Quiet Butterfly

Author Victoria Wright's debut young adult novel - Now Available!

Neepa Irving has two main goals in life: to not get pregnant like her mother did at sixteen years old and to graduate high school.


Neepa’s other goal: to avoid being bullied. Her strategy has been to not be seen or heard, but no matter where she’s lived—on the reservation or in the city—bullies find her. 

When her grandmother kicks out Neepa and her mother for good, they are back on the road. This time, they head to Colorado to start another new life. While unpacking, she discovers poems from her deceased grandfather, reminding her to listen to nature’s wisdom, as her Native ancestors did.

Soon, Neepa is fighting school bullies as well as the bully within—her ego that fills her head with lies. How will her grandfather’s indigenous writings help her? And when her mother messes up again, where will they go next? 

No matter what Neepa does, it seems her life will never be okay.

"The Quiet Butterfly is a compelling story of transformation, told through marvelously developed and likeable characters, with practical magic, wisdom and wonder throughout.  This is billed as a “Young Adult” book, but the writing and message is enjoyable at any age.  I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to rekindle their belief in themselves and to feel good about taking a risk to become their very best self.  Both enjoyable and inspiring, The Quiet Butterfly is a must read."

— Dr. Carrie Johansson, author of Self Help on the Go

About The Quiet Butterfly

The Quiet Butterfly is a result of my own struggles with the bully inside. The negative voice that creates doubt and the feeling of unworthiness. I thought "wow at my age, I am still trying to quiet that negative voice in my head, how do young people manage?" Coupled with the growing incidents of bullying in our schools, I wanted to create a story that both young people and adults could relate to. A story that provides guidance through unlikely places that I trust will inspire and help anyone recognize their own inner strength. Like a butterfly we have stages in life. Some are more beautiful than others, but in the end we all can fly high. All it takes is a leap of faith. — Victoria Wright
