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 would you think this was anything like a Nicholas Sparks novel by the cover or the blurb but it is and that is saying something. Shane was unexpected, the blurb has no mention of him so he was a total surprise. He really helps Sarah grow as a person and plays such a powerful role in her life I can definitely say he is an unforgettable character.

If you have read the first book you know it was about Alex, and even though the book is mainly centered around Sarah we still get to find out how things are turning out with Alex via Sarah's point of view and I am just going to say things are not what I imagined it would be for Alex, it seems she still has to find her happily ever after.

I thought Alex was my favorite but after getting inside Sarah's head and seeing who she really is she has become my favorite so far...since I know for a fact Rachel's story is next and she is still a bit of mystery to me so I can't wait to dive into the next book in the series and then I guess I can make up my mind officially on who is my favorite out of the three friends.

Overall I can't express how much I loved this book and if you haven't started the series I highly recommend you do so.

Format: Paperback
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 sympathised 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 keeps this a secret from her friends convinced that they'd drop her the moment they find out.

Denise Deegan has written a beautiful story with a most amazingly endearing and flawed character, if I could have I would have crawled into the book to hug Sarah. Not only is Sarah's own story a tearjerker but what happened in Butterfly #1 is continued and boy I did not see that development coming.

The writing remains awesome, it takes a couple of sentences before you're completely in the story. I was hoping And for Your Information would as good as book one but instead it surpassed everything. Truly wonderful, read it.

Format: Paperback
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 of adjectives goes on and on.

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 throughout the book she really grew up to be someone great. I especially loved seeing her begin to develop a Shane, a boy dealing with several problems of his own. Shane was a lot like Sarah in some ways, because how he was at first didn't indicate at all what he turned out to be, and I really liked that about him. Plus I loved the way he was with Sarah. He played a big part in her growing up, and to be honest, it was just sweet seeing them fall in love.

The plot in this was a big steep up from And by the Way, because while And by the Way took a little while to get off the ground, this one was an action packed ride from beginning to end.

Format: Paperback
And For You Information... is heart-wrenching. I'm getting that out of the way first because if you're a cry-baby then well, it's best to be warned, isn't it? I mean, I'm not a cry-baby. Well, I am. But I don't cry at books as much as some people do. However And For Your Information... made me cry. Like a baby. It's been ages since a book has done that and whenever other people say "Oh, yeah, it made me cry" I'm all "Seriously?" and I never believe that the book is really, genuinely sad, but And For Your Information... is. It is THAT sad. And it is THAT emotional. And it is THAT GOOD. It is like A Walk To Remember, too, for the record, so please use that as some kind of warning. Go rent A Walk To Remember and then read this book and come tell me how similar they are. This is all Nicholas Sparks's fault.

I don't want to talk too much about the plot of the novel because it was surprising when I read it and when we really get to the cry-baby stuff. As much as it's like A Walk To Remember, it's also not (for those thinking I've already given the plot away by comparing it to that movie). The first "Butterfly" novel focused on Alex, and this time around it's Sarah's turn. I wasn't a big Sarah fan in the first novel - she was very clingy, very needy, very desperate, but she's miles easier to like, miles easier to get to know once we hear things from her point of view. In fact, I liked her better than I liked Alex despite the fact she steals things, at least for a time. Until she's caught and sent to a therapist and to an old people's home for her community service, where she meets Shane, who's grumpy and annoying, but shows glimpses of being totally caliente.
