Jade had listened to Misty and Star tell their stories. Now it is her time to speak. But she can't. For while the others in Dr. Marlowe's therapy group had exposed their hidden pains and secret pasts, they are nothing like Jade. They don't know what it is like to be a pawn in a courtroom battle too hateful to ever forgive. Or that escaping the madness had lured Jade into a ...more

Oh my God this is the third book in the wildflowers series and I thought it was more intense and the last two books.

***Actual Rating: 4.5/5 Stars***

Jade is the third novel in the Wildflowers series written under the name of V.C. Andrews. While I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this one because I don't care much for books that focus on law or legal goings-on, (it mentions Jade being a pawn in a courtroom drama in the synopsis), it oddly enough ended up being the book I liked best out of all of the

The darkness continues to grow deeper in this third installment in the Wildflowers series. Whereas the last two were purely domestic in nature, this one selves deeper into the more disturbing things that can affect a child who is embroiled in a bitter divorce and being forced to choose sides.

Just like with the first two books, this one has excellent character development and delves deeply into the thoughts and feelings of one particular character. Seeing how Jade views the others, especially th

Jade's story was definitely one that would stand out for me within the Wildflowers series. The issues she had to deal with were something I needed to go through in my own life as well. The exciting tidbit of her story also got my blood pumping from being so scared for her. Things like that can and do happen within real life. I would recommend this book.

This book took me the longest to read. I caught myself counting how many pages i had left most of the time. I still love the books but the ghost writer really has done something to VC Andrews style. Maybe he should go his own way...

VC Andrews has once again written an exciting, quick read that will appeal to younger and older readers alike. I could remember faintly that something bad had happened to every girl in this series, when they had tried to run away or do something stupid... And for Jade, this was so very true. It was very strange to hear about how Jade desribed being in a chat room etc. This book was published in 1999, so it was a newish thing back then :P She runs off to meet a guy who understands her, since her ...more

Third book in the Wildflower miniseries. This book was Jade's story, a somewhat spoiled and pampered rich Beverly Hills girl who's parents are going through a nasty divorce. Her parents drag her through the court system trying to win custody of her but she feels more like a prize in a contest. Although the author certainly developed the character and you, as a reader, certainly sympathizes with Jade, there was one, call it an act of rebellion, that just didn't sit well with me. Jade gets herself ...more

VC Andrews has always been a favorite of mine since my childhood days. I have read (and re-read) all of her books, and although I am much older now and find that some of her work is better than others, I still enjoy the twists and turns, strangeness and mystery that continues to captivate my interest.
With that being said - it might also explain why I find the ghostwriter's quality of work lacking and less memorable than Andrews true writing, especially with the newer, more modern series.

Out of all four books in this series, Jade was easily the worst. It wasn't that she was a spoiled rich girl or anything like that. I actually liked her for a while. However, the cyber-relationship and her falling into "Sonny"'s trap was ludicrous. Yes, this kind of thing happens, but in this book, it is hysterical. Jade is supposed to be a smart girl, she's on the honor roll, whatever.

But when she realized something was wrong, she didn't run. And what follows is just utterly ridiculous as a old

Jade is de dochter van zeer rijke ouders, allebei met een verantwoordelijke baan. Als haar ouders willen scheiden, proberen ze allebei de voogdij van hun kind op te eisen. Dit gebeurt door de ander zwart te maken, te bewijzen dat zij meer geld aan de opvoeding van hun kind hebben besteed en vooral door haar liefde te kopen met dure cadeaus. Als Jade echt iemand nodig heeft, hebben haar ouders geen aandacht voor haar. Via internet komt ze in contact met een jongen die haar begrijpt. Jade besluit ...more

This one is my favorite, absolutly. I dont exactly know whyy, but I think I just feel closer to Jade then anybody. Which is WAY weird, but I think she's maybe a bit more... I dont know, current? I cant really explain, but this book takes you along her story and past and memories.(**Spoiler alert**) I feel for her, and my feelings grew when she ran away and that man...*shivers*... practically raped her. No one even noticed she was gone! What's up with that?! Again, very powerul words within this ...more

Jade has definitly been my favorite in the Wildflower series. Like the others it was simply written but with this one there was more to enjoy. More moments where words captured that magical little insight into something bigger and better. I felt like the pain felt by Jade was truer than the pain felt by the others. Or at least it was in the brilliant description.

In general Jade as a character has been my favorite. I can relate her more than either of the two previous girls. Not only that, but he
This was my first encounter with V.C. Andrews work, not "Flowers in the Attic". I later found out that this wasn't even actually V.C but rather a ghost writer. I have seen read another of these "4 small books, one group book" series and to be honest, I can't tell you which is which. I recall simply zipping through all four small books in a night and then the larger one the next but nothing sticks out after 10 years. I liked them enough to keep reading but that was about the extent of it.

Jade was at Dr. Marlowes telling her story of her parents pending divorce and the events that happened during the time that she ran away. The therapy group was certainly a success to her and her friends.
The children are really the victimsduring divorce proceedings. Adults will get on with their lives but there will always be a cross to bear with children.
VC Andrews really knows how to tell a story.

Jade is book three in the Wildflowers series by VC Andrews. This series is about group therapy for four teenage girls, who call themselves OWP's Orphans with Parents. Each book focuses on the tragic story of their lives. The third book is about Jade's life with her neglectful, selfish parents and the road that brought her to Dr Marlowe.

It is interesting how where a person is in their own life can affect how one feels about a book.
Generally, I probably would have liked this book. But not right now. Why I continued to read it after knowing that I was not in the "right" place to read this is unknown to myself. This book is a standard V.C. Andrews book, again, which I generally enjoy, but not this book, not right now.

I remember sneaking these books from my moms book collection when I was 11 or 12. The storyline to all the ones that I have read were pretty terrible but I couldn't stop my 12 year old self from reading them! I can't say I do not like these books because I use to love them! I think I may read one at 26 and see how I feel about them.

Jade was actually the least book out of the serie. Her story was kinda boring. THe whole time it's her parents and then suddenly that weird creepy guy. The guy was a good change because her parents really iriitated me.

one of the best, most loved series/authors of all time. V.C. Andrews books are something so easily recognizable and new books continue to evolve to go with the times and bring in a whole new generation of loving readers

This is the third book in Andrews' disappointing Wildflowers series. If you enjoy Andrews' books, I would recommend skipping this series.
