BUTTERFLY GIRL

Abbie Evans' coming-of-age struggle is complicated by a rare life-threatening skin disorder, epidermolysis bullosa, which makes her body as fragile as butterfly wings. Evans is ready to assert her independence and break free from her stalwart parents. They have equipped her well for life outside the nest, yet are reluctant to let her go. She is alternately snarky and self-deprecating, optimistic and reckless, much like a regular teenager in this unsentimental yet moving portrait. – AM
