Summary

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, with whom nobody wants to be friends. 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.

Good

Good book and audiobook. I am 16, but I am still an avid Jacqueline Wilson fan. when this came out I obviously had to get it. despite the target age group of this book, I still found myself wanting to read to the end. It was a lovely story.very realistic for that age, and the narrator was good.also, I like the way Wilson introduces cast characters into her stories. What character or characters is it? Your have to listen to find out. whahahahaha.

Inspiration!!🦋

I personally have been ill from a very young age and having too sit out a lot because I did nit feel good …this book really makes me happy because it links my own personal experiences with others and I loved how it also incorporated “you don’t know what your bullies are going through “ it was really sweet and shown people how they should act and finally I thought having Tina have an intent and pursuing it like I am! With art . I hope you are having a good day or night! ~Lily {trying to Persaud her dreams } 🌸💕

Great book

It was fantastic and good . I didn't like it when Tina went to Selma's house for tea.It was also good to mentioned Ruby and Garnet (Double Act).Can Jacqueline Willson link up other characters from different books together .

One of her best

Teaches to never judge by character or class. Wonderful to see a nod towards Ruby and Garnet. Wonderfully read too!
