Flowers in the Attic Author:V.C. Andrews The four Dollanganger children had such perfect lives - a beautiful mother, a doting father, a lovely home. Then suddenly, Daddy was killed in a car accident, and Momma was left deeply in debt, with no skills to earn a living to support her family. So she began writing letters to her parents, her millionaire parents, whom the children had never ... more »heard of before.
The children are told they will live like princes and princessess in the fancy mansion, until they discover there are a few things Momma hasn't told them.
Their grandmother considers them "devil's spawn" and that in order to receive the inheritance, she must hide them from grandfather, locked away in an abandoned wing of the house with only the dark, airless attic to play in for only a few days.
