Wendi wants her junior year to be her best ever, and that means getting Rod to notice her. Her best friend Tracy suggests that Wendi rebel against a biology project that requires the class to mount and label dead bugs. Wendi, who has always been fond of butterflies, starts a Save the Butterflies campaign, which antagonizes the teacher. Rod notices Wendi and asks her out, but she isn't as thrilled as she thought she would be. Her neighbor and old friend Jeff starts dating a cheerleaderwhy didn't she notice how cute he had become? Diehard romance fans will find this likable fare, but will not find any surprises. The butterfly theme quickly wears thin, especially when the heroine answers the question ``What kind of butterfly are you, butterfly girl?'' with ``I don't know. Maybe I'm still a caterpillar.'' Readers may end up laughing out loud. Ages 12-up. (May)
