When I think back to my adolescence, V.C. Andrews always pops into my mind. She was my absolute favorite author, with her Dollanganger/Flowers in the Attic series being the first set of books I became absolutely obsessed with. I still remember the thrills and excitement of a new V.C. Andrews release and hurrying to the local B. Dalton (pre-Barnes & Noble and Amazon) to pick it up as quickly as I could and staying up late in

Oooh I was so hooked on this book. I couldn't put it down!! Great come-back from author V.C. Andrews after the last one I read. So many unsuspected actions happened. It kept me wanting more.
