This is the only V.C. Andrews story I have ever read and after reading it I want to read them all. This story was truly haunting and bizarre. The whole time you're thinking "WHAT IS GOING ON??". I felt so sorry for the girl in the story, that with every page I hoped it would get better for her. Because I was so haunted by this book its hard to say it was a great book, but it really was a GREAT BOOK. Suspenseful and full of emotion. I recommend it highly.
