A major Lifetime movie event—the novel that captured the world's imagination and earned V.C. Andrews a fiercely devoted fanbase. Book One of the Dollanganger Family series.

At the top of the stairs there are four secrets hidden. Blond, beautiful, innocent, and struggling to stay alive…

They were a perfect family, golden and carefree—until a heartbreaking tragedy shattered their happiness. Now, for the sake of an inheritance that will ensure their future, the children must be hidden away out of sight, as if they never existed. Kept on the top floor of their grandmother’s vast mansion, their loving mother assures them it will be just for a little while. But as brutal days swell into agonizing months and years, Cathy, Chris, and twins Cory and Carrie realize their survival is at the mercy of their cruel and superstitious grandmother…and this cramped and helpless world may be the only one they ever know.

Book One of the Dollanganger series, followed by Petals in the Wind, If There be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows.

    I absolutely love this book and series. In total there are 8 books in the series Flowers in the Attic, Petals on the Wind, If there be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, are all about The 4 Children mainly Cathy, Christopher, and Carrie. Garden of Shadows covers the Grandmother and reveals deep family secrets. There are two books covering a diary written by Christopher during his time in the Attic Christopher’s Diary Echoes of a Dollenganger and Secrets of Foxworth. The eighth book is called Secret Brother and is about wait for it......... Cory after he supposedly died.

    This was such a good book. I saw the movie first, but I think the book is better. This book will leave you in tears and angry at the characters. There are moments in this book that you won't expect. You have to read this book, it will leave you shocked.

    Flowers in the attic is an AWESOME book! I really loved this book, but it ended with a cliff hanger...
  • Goodish

    By Klm is me
    It had a nice plot and message, but it was really gross for me. I mean her brother kissed her! Barf in my mouth. Like I said it was good-ish.

    This was a very good book! I bought it because of a quote on Pinterest, and wow! am I glad I did. It is thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, and an all around good read. I highly recommend it!

    I loved this book. Very suprised because for this book was written in the 50's, it was quite easy to read. And i'm 11. I watched the lifetime's version of this movie, and it was truly amazing. But after reading this book, It included so much. I finished a 1000 page book in almost a day. That says something for someone like me who has only read 2 books in my 6th grade school year. This is the only book read by V.C andrews, but i'm looking forward to reading more of his books:)
