This was such a good read. It's a story filled with all sorts of friendship, romance and some fantasy aspect to it. I read through this book a lot faster then I thought I was going to, there was always something interesting happening in it. The author did a very good job, hope she writes some more books!

I really loved this book! I wasn't expecting much but Jodi Bullock is a wonderful writer and portrayed the thoughts and emotions of a fifteen year old girl perfectly!

It's a fairly short book that doesn't take long to read but the plot felt as though it flowed naturally. I really enjoyed this unique plot, and it's very different from most teen/YA books being published now. It moved along just fast enough and Brooke was an easy character to relate to and enjoy.

I really liked this book. It was the best book that I have read in quite some time. I loved the plot since it focused on dreams. In fact this was the first book I have read that was about dreams. It was really suspenseful towards the end of the book and I kept turning the page to figure out what happened. Miss Cee Cee was my favorite character since she was crazy and funny at the same time. I would love there to be a sequel and would definitely read it if there was one.

This was a fun book to read about dream makers (seers). It was quick and easy to read. I would reccomend this book for young adult readers.

Butterfly by Jodi Bullock

Butterfly is based on a 15 year old girl named Brooke. She was a ballet star, but when a tragedy occurred she became depressed and lonely. Until one of the weirdest neighbors, Miss CeeCee, becomes friends with her. That is where the story begins.
Brooke has a deep crush on Blaze. Blaze is a kid at her school. They become good friends and find out that they are both seers, which means you can go into people’s dreams. Blaze and Brooke had to use clarity, which is a magical

I truly enjoyed Butterfly. It’s a well written story about dream makers. According to Cee Cee, there would be a lot less happiness in the world without the dream makers, also known as seers. Jodi ties in dreams and nightmares well into the story plot. I was fascinated by this world and how the seers are able to connect together, jumping in and out of dreams. Although the story is shorter than the average young adult books, the story flowed well. And the characters were easily likeable. This ...more

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Although there were some gramatical errors and a few typos, the book was good. I found the story line to be a little difficult to understand at times. The explanations in the book left me a bit confused and it seemed to jump through time without warning a lot.

The concept of the book was great! Even though it wasn't perfect, I still couldn't put it down.

Very different and enjoyable. It seemed like it ended abruptly, but I read there is another book in the works. I hope so.

There are two things that I have always known I wanted to be. One is an elementary school teacher. I had an amazing 2nd grade teacher, Mr. Geivet, who inspired me. I have been teaching elementary school for eleven years. The second thing is a writer. I have always written. I have always had stories swirling around in my head.
I love reading young adult novels. Maybe I'm a bit immature (maybe?!),

“The only nightmare I could remember was from when I was a very small child, maybe three or four years old. Cookie Monster from Sesame Street had been babysitting me and kept chasing me around the house calling me 'Cookie'. I was trying to focus on it, but at sixteen years old, it was funny to me now.” 2 likes
