This was the first V.C. Andrews book I had ever read. As you can tell from my book shelf I have been hooked ever since. I love the crazy storylines. It makes me thankful for my semi dysfunctional family even more.

At first I thought it was aimed at teens - if it is, good for them. The style of writing is truly excellent. A great story.

Read how the saga began for Rain Arnold, when she overheard a family secret, and is sent to live with the wealthy Hudson family. First installment of the Hudson family series. Thrilling storyline in classic V.C. Andrews style!

this is the first book in the hudson series. it's about how rain finds out the truth about her family. she is quickly moved from the poorest of neighborhoods to the richest. i am a fan of v.c. andrews, but not of this book. i find that the book doesn't prepare you for the rest of the series. there is alot of unneeded jibberish. like beni. what really is her point? she doesn't really have a need in the book. roy is pointless, but not as pointless as beni. i've decided not to read the rest of the series at the moment for fear of falling asleep.

Growing up in the ghettos of Washington, DC, the cards are stacked against a hardworking dreamer like Rain Arnold. Rain has fought to be the best daughter sha can: she studies hard and gets good grades; she helps he mother cook and clean. And unlike her defiant younger sister, she avoids the dangers of the city streets as if her life depends on it...and it does. But Rain can't suppress the feeling that she has never truly fit in, that she is a danger in her own world.
Then one fateful night, Rain overhears something she shouldn't: a heartbreaking revelation from the past, a long-buried secret that is about to change her life in ways that she could never have imagined. In the blink of an eye, everything Rain has ever known-the family she has loved and the familiar place she has called home-is left behind, and Rain is sent to live with total strangers, the wealthy Hudson family. But just as she did not belong to the troubled world she was raised in, Rain is also out of place in this realm of luxury and privilege. With nowhere to turn, Rain finds an escape in the theater, inside the walls of an exclusive private school. But will it be enough to fulfill her heart's deepest wish-and give her a place to call home?
