Butler Bookshelf

This week the Butler Bookshelf has so many fabulous and interesting reads that it’s hard to choose just one! We are ready to get our hearts broken with the collapse of Cleo and Layla’s friendship (When You Were Everything), but also to learn how to navigate life’s challenges with optimism and hope (The End is Just the Beginning). We want to know how Zee and her tree grow together (Zee Grows a Tree), and if the world really does end this month (The World Ends in April). The only way to find out is to check out the fantastic titles below!
