And by the Way ...

(The first book in the Butterfly series)
A novel by

Six months ago, I lost my mum to cancer and my dad, 'The Rockstar', to work. Now, I don't do close. With anyone. That way I won't get hurt.

My friend, Rachel, won't give up on me. And that's a problem. So is David McFadden, a guy in my class who says he wants to help. Six months ago, he could have but didn't. Now, it's too late. The last person I'm going to listen to is David McFadden. When he calls me Ice Queen, I'll show him just how right he is.
