Features for Teachers: Kindness Butterflies

Posted on 24/09/2019 in Features for Teachers Victoria Williamson

The Boy with the Butterfly Mind


Jamie Lee wants to be normal. But his ADHD makes him feel like his brain is full of butterflies.

Elin Watts wants to be perfect. If she can be, surely her dad will come home.

When Jamie and Elin’s families join, chaos and order collide. But perhaps they have something in common. Maybe there’s no such thing as normal, or perfect. Maybe being yourself is more than enough.

Discover the latest inspiring story from Victoria Williamson, author of The Fox Girl and the White Gazelle.

Also by Victoria Williamson:

She is the Fox Girl.
I am the White Gazelle.
Together we can outrun anything.

Reema feels completely lost. She’ll never call this strange country, with its grey skies and boring food, home. Syria is her home and it’s a million miles away.

Caylin feels completely alone. She’s looking after her useless mum, stealing from other kids so she can eat. She can’t tell anyone, they’ll only let her down.

The refugee and the bully — Reema and Caylin can’t imagine being friends, until a shared secret brings them together.

‘A beautiful story singing with love and hope’ — Sarah Driver, author of the Huntress series
