My friends, Alex and Rachel are minted. My money runs out. All the time.

After Alex's mum died, Rachel knew how to help. It made them closer. They don't mean to leave me out. And I try not to mind.

I have a sort-of boyfriend. We don't talk about the stuff that matters. But it's better than nothing, right?

I'm not even going to talk about my family.

Shoplifting wasn't exactly o

After reading And by the Way, the first in Butterfly series, I couldn't wait to see what was up next for Rachel, Alex, and Sarah, and just my luck, I had a copy of And for Your Information, the second one in the series, already in my possession. So I quickly dove right in, and oh my gosh, I was BLOWN away to say the least! I thought And by the Way was good but this one was just its own kind of brand of good- amazing more like it! It was bittersweet, heartwarming, romantic, emotional...the list o ...more

Earlier this year (just a couple of months back, in fact) I read Denise Deegan’s first novel in her new “Butterfly” series And By The Way… It was an OK read, nothing entirely special with too many American “likes” thrown into random sentences and I wasn’t entirely sure if I’d be getting book two, And For You Information… Until a blogger friend read it. And cried over it. And said it was awesome. Well, I’m a sucker for a book that’s described like the Nicholas Sparks novel/movie A Walk To Remembe ...more

This book nearly made me cry. In the first book we see Sarah as such a ditzy person and we don't really get to know her. We just saw the actions she did but never how she felt about things. In the first book, i got slightly annoyed with her for trying to flirt with David and sticking her foot into things so deep, it was impossible for her to get it out again. But in this book, i grew to love her. The blurb is quite vague and you would not expect Sarah to meet Shane. there's no mention of him at ...more

This is just one of those books that really got under my skin. I just can't stop thinking about it.

This is the second book in the Butterfly series - following on from And By The Way - and this time we get Sarah's story. I was surprised by how much I loved Sarah - she was the weaker of the three characters for me in the first book but here she really grows - becomes absolutely adorable and I could help but completely loved her.

I must say the synopsis is just a tad misleading - I went int

I was somewhat apprehensive about the second Butterfly Novel because Sarah really doesn’t make a great impression in the first book. She comes across as flakey and annoying but after the first chapter of And for Your Information Sarah made sense. Not only that but I sympathized with her so much that I spend most of this book blubbing.

Sarah is caught shoplifting; her punishment is community service and therapy arranged by her father who left her mother for another woman not that long ago. Sarah k

The second Butterfly novel, this one from Sarah’s point of view. And oh dear lord, I thought it was going to be about shoplifting. And be a little fluffier than Alex’s story. Angsty, maybe, but not, you know. Not heart-breaking. Not tense and dramatic and something which would shake up everything you thought you knew about these characters – not just Sarah but the others too. Not achey and grown-up. (I was somewhat mistaken, if that’s not abundantly clear.) This is a completely compelling read. ...more

When I saw the second in Deegan's Butterfly series was going to be about Sarah I wasn't the most excited to read it because I had her pegged out to be air headed and annoying so when I found myself loving her character in And For Your Information I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting such a heart rendering novel but Deegan is an amazing writer so shame on me for pre-judging this novel.

I wasn't expecting a novel that would practically bring tears to my eyes, I mean in no way wou

This book was really good because it was written by Sarah the third friend of Alex and Rachel who go to Strandbrook College they think they know everything about her who cares more about appearances than anything real.And yeah she does care about what people think.
Her friends Rachel and Alex, there supposed to be her best friends but they tell each other things they never tell Sarah.Then there's Simon,her sort-of-boyfriend. They hardly see each other and when they do it's like they don't even kn

And for Your Information tells the story of Sarah, best friend to Alex (And by the Way's narrator) and Rachel (the narrator of the upcoming third book). In the first book, I wasn't the biggest fan of Sarah. She seemed a bit immature as well as goofy and not the greatest friend out there. However, in this one, I truly got to see what kind of person she is deep down, and I was pleasantly surprised. She's not half as flaky and silly as she appears. She's actually really sweet and funny, and through ...more

When I first bought the book, I admit I didn't have any expectation. I have never read a Denise Deegan's book before nor have I heard her name. But oh boy, imagine my surprise, delightfully so at the unexpectedly engaging story. Despite the cover, the plot was utterly amazing, the characters were very well written and the ending, I tell you, I cried buckets! I have never been so into a teen's novel before not even when I was in my teen.

And I have been searching for book 1 and book 3 of the serie

This was an absolutely fantastic book that brought tears to my eyes. It is my favourite of the three Butterfly Novels and i have to say i am emotionally atattched to this book. No matter how many times i read it (and it has to be dozens at this stage) i still always cry at the sad bits and laugh at the funny bits. I must know it off by heart at this stage. I would definitley recommend all three of The Butterfly Novels, as Denises work is brilliant. I had the lovely opportunity to meet Denise a f ...more

The second book in the butterfly series is an amazing read. This book follows the life of Sarah rather than Alex, like the first book did. Sarah is one of Alex's best friends. We get to see Sarah's point of view of Alex, which is interesting and also gives us a better image of Alex. We also get to see what Sarah thinks about everything that happens in the first book. At the start of the book we see Sarah make a few bad decisions and follow the story as she pays for her mistakes. The story as she ...more

When I heard that the sequel book was going to be written in Sarah's point of view, I had to say I was disappointed.
But once I began reading I actually enjoyed her character more than Alex's. I thought Shane and Sarah's relationship was adorable but was sort of expecting a cookie-cutter ending. I was proved wrong.
Denise Deegan paces to novel well considering all that was going on. I also found Sarah's character interesting and extremely relatable.
It was an absolutely brilliant read and am look

I read this book first before the others as i only realised after i read it that it was part of a series... After it i read Rachel's book, but never really got around to the Alex's. One thing that i actually really enjoyed from this book was that it was set in Ireland which made it much more realistic seeing as i always read books about an american high school girls! Anyways I really did enjoy this book, I remember balling my eyes out at the end even though i read this a long long time ago... ...more

i am never really into YA genre. and this story demonstrates the perfect reasons why. I found it difficult to read about 16, 17 years old's romantic stories. To me, even at 17 years old, they are still kids. they should be learning in school, and just being kids.. instead, we have teen-pregnancy, agonising teenage relationship.. sighss..

HOWEVER, if you like YA and agonising teenager relationships, this is definitely NOT a bad series.

I really liked the first book in the Butterfly novel series but this one was so much better. I was so completely wrapped up in it. I laughed and cried with the characters as though I knew them, I think my husband got jealous of the book. It's the best YA novel I have ever read and that includes the Twilight Series. ...more

I've read the first 3 butterfly novels and this is by far my favourite, I haven't read it in a while but it is so memorable for me because it was so good! Really nice the way it's an Irish series, as usually all the y/a books I read are British or American and it can be hard understanding them. Made me cry, would highly recommend as a single read, no need to read first novel. ...more
