There was something about Karen that I didn't like right from the start and so it was good to know my senses weren't off! Have the sequel and will read it.
Mind you, I read it in one evening so on the plus side of things, it was easy and quick to read!
This story was amazing! Although I seen some reviews that claimed this book was horrible I have to disagree. I must agree though that it did take forever to get to the action but then again don't most stories explain things in the beginning to then get to the juicy parts. I would've given it 4.5 stars BUT I was getting rather annoyed with the characters both Zipporah and Karen. I don't know who I was getting upset with more!
This story had a lot of lies and deceit yet also sho ...more
The characters were annoying, especially Karen (not saved by the fact that she is my namesake). I found it quite predictable and had to push myself through to finish it. The story was interesting but unfortunately, the frustrating characters let it down for me.

Wow. Karen sure is a sicko.
But man, it made for great reading. You knew she was full of crap, and you had a feeling all throughout she wasn't telling the truth about her story, but I didn't expect her to be that demented.
I like that when I read a book though. I get pulled into sick twisted minds and go right along with whatever gets dished out.
V.C. Andrews always packs a punch with me. Each story is different, and yet I always get pulled right into it.
This is an older series, but i ...more
I found this book sad and intamate,, you want the characters to pull together and survive even though surviving is against the odds!! It's heart warming how the children look out for eachother and protect each other!!
There us a twist in this book which I'm reluctant to mention because of spoilers!!
It's definitley worth a read!!
However the books that followed weren't as good I list intrest midway through the second book but have read them all because they were here and ...more
Part one of a two part series (I think), centers around two teenaged girls that befriend one another in a small town. One of these girls has many many secrets, but mostly it just boils down to her being a bit insane.
Zipporah's best friend, the one she feels as close to as a sister, turns her world up side down and puts her whole family and happiness at risk. I long ag ...more
The characters were good but they could play their parts some much better than they did.
It was a good story in the beggining, an average story towards the end and it was really bad by the epilogue.
I just can't stand the last pages. For me it was unfinished and unexplained. I'm all for using my imagination when I read but that was just too much.
I wondered why zipporah was such an outcast that she could be so easily manipulated, seems like she had a good home, wasn't too ugly, too smart, or too dumb, i just didn't believe the new girl with the weird name would be so invisible.
And why was Karen so twisted??
confusing weak and just fluff
but i never got the real Vc andrews either,
The ghostwriter is supposed to be honoring V.C. Andrews. When she passed away he continued to write her books in her name to keep her vestige alive. As a heirloom and gift to her adoring fans. However, VCA's legacy is going down the drain, and it is because of the ghostwriter ...more
