I read this book when I moved away from home for the first time as a rebellious move. My mom always forbid me from reading VC Andrews when I was little and a teenager (though I was reading Jude Deveraux at age 10). It really wasn't as scandalous as I'd thought it would be...though it was scandalous. I tried to continue reading the series, but I couldn't get into it, and I thought the storyline was gratuitous.

Good trashy fun. You have incest, children held prisoner in an attic, a demonic grandmother - what more could you want.

I love all of V C Andrews books, but my favorite will always be her first one "Flowers in the Attic". It's dark, it's gripping, it's suspenseful and I couldn't put the book down until I had read the last page!!!

Read this whole series when I was in middle school. Really got me interested in reading and reading more.

Would highly recommend for similar age. I may have to go back and read as an adult and see if enjoyable as an adult or just young adult. Not sure there.

I will note - the subject matter may not be acceptable to all families. I would be ok with my children reading, but I can understand some people's apprehension.

But if you are looking for something to get a girl reading - this is a good series.
