The Dollanganger series: damaging teenage girls since 1980. ( )

I remember reading this book as a pre-teen, and I remember thinking that it was disappointing.

But I also remember that it was very popular, and I thought perhaps something wax over my head.

No... no, I understood it all too well. The writing is horrible. ( )

I read this haunting book when I was a kid... such a long time ago. I still remember it. ( )

While exceptionally disturbing, this is a must read story for those open enough to controversial subjects. There will be no Mother of Grandmother of the year awards for the characters in this book, although they may qualify for villain of the year! This tale is very well written and will tug at your emotions. It's impossible to read without having strong feelings about the plot and situations encountered in the attic! ( )

Book description
Way upstairs there are four secrets hidden. Blond, beautiful, innocent little secrets, struggling to stay alive. Flowers In the Attic The four Dollanganger children had such perfect lives -- a beautiful mother, a doting father, a lovely home. Then Daddy was killed in a car accident, and Momma could no longer support the family. So she began writing letters to her parents, her millionaire parents, whom the children had never heard of before. Momma tells the children all about their rich grandparents, and how Chris and Cathy and the twins will live like princes and princesses in their grandparents' fancy mansion. The children are only too delighted by the prospect. But there are a few things that Momma hasn't told them. She hasn't told them that their grandmother considers them "devil's spawn" who should never have been born. She hasn't told them that she has to hide them from their grandfather if she wants to inherit his fortune. She hasn't told them that they are to be locked away in an abandoned wing of the house with only the dark, airless attic to play in. But, Momma promises, it's only for a few days.... Then the days stretch into months, and the months into years. Desperately isolated, terrified of their grandmother, and increasingly convinced that their mother no longer cares about them, Chris and Cathy become all things to the twins and to each other. They cling to their love as their only hope, their only strength -- a love that is almost stronger than death.
Haiku summary
"My lover is hot!"
Now hold on. You mean he is
her brother? Oh, ick.
