I've read many books by this author and they're almost always riveting but incredibly sad...kinda like when you pass by a car accident and inexplicably have to look....

This is the kind of genre I can only handle in small spread out doses.

It's not classic V.C. Andrews, but it's a quick read and interesting enough to keep you turning pages til the end.

This is the 1st book in the GEMINI series. V.C. Andrews writes in her usual creepy style. An insane mother refuses to accept her son's death and makes her daughter assume his identity, even going as far as dressing her dead son Noble in her daughter Celeste's clothes, standing by the grave and saying "Goodbye, Celeste."

It seems that all the V.C. Andrew's books are the same anymore, just a different name & a different place.

This is the last decent V.C. Andrews books written. I really really liked this one. It's very heartbreaking though.

The story moved kind of slow. It seemed like a lot of the content kept repeating itself.

Also registered on bookcrossing.

One of my favorite V.C. Andrews storylines, even though it is new. It follows the same basic twisted style that the name is known for, but I really enjoyed this storyline and look forward to reading the next in the series.
