Recommended to Jennifer by: Tina O.
Read in January, 1984

When I was in my early teen years reading Sweet Valley High with my allowance money, a girlfriend (Tina O.) loaned me four of her V.C. Andrews books. DAAAAAAAAMN. Popped my little girl eyes open and introduced me to teen porn.

You have everything in here that speaks to a budding woman fresh out of her tweens:
1)Beloved father dies and family falls apart. (check)
2)Mom can't handle life without her husband and makes stupid decisions that end up being really great for her but not so great for her 4 kids. (check)
3)Incest, abuse and horrors galore. (Check.)
4)A steaming pile of righteous indignation. (check plus)

As far as literature it is a steaming pile - but it's high on the list of guilty pleasures and is definetly crack-a-licious for any 13 year old girl who is blossoming into a bitchy angst ridden anti-mom machine.
