My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews is the mysterious story of a young girl named Audrina, who spends most of her time being a shut-in with her parents, aunt and cousin. Because of something that happened to her older sister (the First and Best Audrina), she (the Second and Inferior Audrina) cannot go to school or be around boys. Eventually Audrina starts to have somewhat of a normal life, with piano lessons, school, and a friendship with the neighbor boy, Arden, which turns into love. Yet she cannot shake her sister's death from the shadows, and realizes there is something about the First Audrina she must know.

This is the only stand-alone novel penned by Andrews. While I didn't care for the romance between the Arden and Audrina, her cousin Vera is by far the best villain ever written in the Andrews books to date. This was a book actually written by Andrews (and not her Ghostwriter), so it has that authentic sense of Gothic horror and sick, twisted family relationships her fans have come to know and love. A guilty pleasure for sure, but sometimes we all need easy reading.

I had mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand it did keep me reading till the very end. I thought it was a very sad book. I didnt like the ending.

Very good book, I usually don't stray from romance but I'm glad my friend convinced me to read this book.

Audrina Adara wanted to be as good as her sister. She knew her father could not love her as he loved her sister. Her sister was so special, so perfect- and dead. Now she will come face to face with the dangerous terrifying secret that everyone knows.

i was a little disturbed by this novel - it is definetly vc's darkest. if you like gothics, this book has enough Dark (and Deadly) Family Secrets to fill a library.

I'm not a huge V.C Andrews fan, but of all the books she wrote this was my favorite. I've read quite a few of them and years later this is the one I recommend to others to read. The story is awesome and the descriptions are great. I'm almost glad it was a stand alone because I'd hate to see it get watered down as a series.
