Ismee Alharakee Farasha (Code Name: Butterfly) is a captivating YA tale of love, loyalty, and coming of age in the midst of upheaval.

Life in occupied Palestine isn't easy. Butterfly is a spirited teenager grappling with the complexities of growing up. Tinged with irony and fueled by unwavering idealism, she navigates a maze of adult duplicities, challenging friendships, and volatile sibling relationships.

Butterfly confronts some of life's most profound questions: Are the whispers of her father's potential alliance with the occupiers true? And will Nizar ever return her feelings of affection?

Thrust into a whirlwind of emotions and doubts, Butterfly learns to face the storms of young adulthood where 'honour' becomes a word charged with peril and meaning.

Also available in an English language paperback edition titled Code Name: Butterfly.
