Out of all the books I've read I enjoy books by V.C. Andrews because it always leaves me wanting to read more. Sometimes it's hard for me to put down a V.C. Andrews novel because it's that good. The first book I read by V.C. Andrews is Flowers in the Attic which became a movie. It's about a selfish mother who locks her 4 kids away in a attic for a few years because her father never approved of her marriage to her uncle who was really her half brother but the mother never knew that her husband was her half brother. The grandmother thought her grand kids were the devils and hated them every much. At the end of the story one of the kids die on the counting of the grandmother put rat poison in the donuts but only one of them ate it. The name of the children are Catherine, Chris, Cory and Carrie who are twins. Cory is the one who ate the poisonous and died at the end. The other three escaped and didn't even bother to say good bye to their mother. The grandfather who the kids never met died before getting to know each other. If anyone wants to read a book about secrets and betrayals then Flowers in the Attic is the book for you.
