And Actually … by Denise Deegan

25 Nov
The Butterfly Novels form a series of contemporary YA books set in an elite school in South Dublin. Called the Irish OC, they follow the stories of three sixteen-year-old friends, Sarah, Alex and Rachel.
Each book is told from a different girl’s point of view.  All of them tackle big issues affecting teenagers today.  Whether laughing or crying, they are books that make you feel.
.
“When I first met Alex and Sarah – in detention – they treated me like I was normal. A human being.  They actually liked me – thought it took a while to trust that. I’ve never told them about my life before I met them. I wanted a new one.
A fresh start.  Now, they think I’m the strong one, the one with all the answers, the guru. No clue why.  When I get a part in a TV drama it’s all my dreams come true.  It’ll also bring me face-to-face with someone from my past.  But I’m a different person now.  And I’m sure Rebecca is too.  No matter what, there’s no way I’m going to let my past destroy my future.”

Reviews
‘Expect more of the same sharp dialogue, realistic romance and characters so believable that they stay with you long after you’ve finished reading.’
Kiss Magazine
‘Deegan has done it again. Not only is AND ACTUALLY… as addictive a read as the previous two books in the series, but it also has the same level of powerful drama and emotion, with some breath-taking scenes. There’s also the wonderful Dublin setting, and sparkling, fast-paced dialogue, complete with humor. (When Rachel introduces us to her agent, she says: “think Edna Mode from The Incredibles but tone it down a bit; she’s Irish”.)’
