First in the Broken Wings Duology
Broken Wings follows three girls: Robin, Teal, and Phoebe. These girls are different from one another, but they have one thing in common they’ve been sent to a facility for girls who should be in jail.

I found this book in my college library and couldn't put it down, I had never heard of Virginia Andrews before but this book was addictive, so much so I bough the sequel, Midnight Flight at the Airport... so to this day I only own the sequel.
