really liked it

I want to say that I've read this book before, or started reading and not finished. If you've never read V.C. Andrews, they all sort of follow a theme (at least the ones I have read ie Flowers in the Attic), which is family secrets and drama.

Ruby has a bit of family drama, but it doesn't completely unfold until the end of the book. She's a little girl growing up in the bayou with her Grandma. Her mother is deceased, father unknown, and Grandfather is estranged. By the end of the book she has found out her family secrets (more siblings) the reasons her Grandma kicked her Grandpa out, and who her father is.

Its dated in the past, so she couldn't just take a DNA test and find out everything, and it's set in the backwoods of Louisiana, so they're a bit behind even further (no phones). It takes her awhile to acclimate to her new situation, but there is a bit of a happy ending (as much as there can be).
