LoveReading View on The Butterfly Club

February 2015 Book of the Month Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson unfolds a compelling new story about the importance of both family and friends. Tina is the youngest and the smallest of the triplets. She was so little when she was a baby and so ill that she very nearly died. Tina and her triplet sisters Phil and Maddie have always done everything together so, even though they just starting in the juniors, Mum is still very protective of her. But the scary teacher separates the triplets and Tina has to learn to manage on her own. Can she do it? Especially when she has to sit next to the ferocious Selma? Helped by butterflies, Tina finds a way to win through and, in doing so, to become far stronger than she has ever thought possible. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Butterfly Club Synopsis

Tina is a triplet, but she's always been the odd one out. Her sisters Phil and Maddie are bigger and stronger and better at just about everything. Luckily, they look after teeny-tiny Tina wherever they go - but when the girls start in scary, super-strict Miss Lovejoy's class, they're split up, and Tina has to fend for herself for the first time. Tina is horrified when she's paired up with angry bully Selma, who nobody wants to be friends with. But when Miss Lovejoy asks them to help her create a butterfly garden in the school playground, Tina discovers she doesn't always need her sisters - and that there's a lot more to Selma than first meets the eye.

The Good Book Guide Review

Tina, Phil and Maddie are triplets. They do everything together. However, when they go into Miss Lovejoy’s class, they get separated. Tina is very unhappy – she has been paired with the bully, Selma. Then Tina and Selma begin making a butterfly garden together, and things start to change. This compassionate and moving story shows how friendship can blossom in the unlikeliest of places. (Ages 8–11)
