    1. I admit that Virginia Andrews books are one of my guilty pleasures. Ever since I read Flowers in the Attic when I was in my late teens I have loved them, and read every one since. Yes, there was a change after she died and the ghost writer took over but somehow I just felt I had to keep going.This one seems in some ways to go back to the old stuff and I felt was less 'young adult' targeted than some of the others (particularly the Orphans series). It had some dodgy moments. I didn't feel that th [...]


    2. I basically stick to reading VC Andrews like a "comfort food" for my brain. I liked her early stuff as do alot of fans I ask. I don't have a memorable moment or favorite series that's new. But, if u still want to continue, as I am, to read her to just be comforted by familarity then, by all meansJordan March is the main character in this series and she hits puberty at a very young age. It is treated as an illness and things only get stranger from there.


    3. THIS . IS . SICK!V.C. Andrews had some intriguing ideas for novels when she was alive, but since the ghost writers have taken over, things have gone downhill. Some series are better than others, but this one disturbs me on a whole lot of levels!The story starts with a SIX-year-old CHILD entering into what's called "precocious puberty." Her body begins to develop, and in subsequent chapters, we have the child's father, brother, and complete strangers talking to her about such things as masturbati [...]


    4. I realise that when one purchases a VC Andrews, particularly one written after VC Andrews herself died, that one is opening themselves up to a certain type of work. Odds are, at some point during the book, there will be an incestuous relationship. There will be a smattering of ineffectual parents, and a domineering male. These are staples of the commercial institution that has become the Andrews estate. In the most recent books, homosexuality has also been introduced. This book, however, adds th [...]


    5. HmWowHOLY SHIT.I don't know what I saidbut I DID READ THIS BOOK WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOLd I forgot what this book talked about. >,>I didn't realize that book is very sick and dirty about six years old girl >.> CrapBut I really like this book


    6. VC Andrews is my guilty pleasure readingd I generally go back to her when I can't get into anything else for some reason. Most of the time, I love her books! This book made me come to a conclusion that I like her old stuffe lost her story telling ability somewhere along the line I thinkwho knows, maybe this was just a bad book. I am going to read the second one in the series anyway, despite how much I disliked this onehopefully that one is better.This is her most recent series (I think actually [...]


    7. This has to stop, seriously. When Neiderman first ghostwrote for VCA, he did a decent job. I liked the Cutler series, and he did a good job of finishing up the books that VCA had started but didn't finish for the Dollanganger and Casteel series. The Landry and Logan series, while not the best, were still very decent, and I enjoyed them. However, it all started to go downhill with Orphans. That was not what VCA would have written.My problem is not the precocious puberty or what her brother is doi [...]


    8. I haven't read a V.C. Andrew's book in years until this one. It was another sad story with so many things that go wrong that I couldn't help but enjoy. I can't wait to read the next one.


    9. I have been reading V.C Andrews for over 20 years. In fact, my first "adult" book I picked out when I was 11 years old was V.C Andrews' book Heaven, the first in the Casteel series. So, needless to say, my expectations were high, and my hopes were even higher. Jordan March is your typical 6 year old girl, except she lives in a very large and beautiful mansion that is lorded over by her grandmother. Her mother, father, and brother, Ian, also live there along with her. Suddenly, Jordan's life turn [...]


    10. Forty-seven pages in and I was confused. The poor little girl of a main character was only six years old and had gotten her first period. Her mother did the right thing by contacting a doctor to see why her daughter had early-onset puberty and what could be done about it, but then when it came time to tell Jordan's father they seemed overly concerned about not telling Jordan's grandmother. Why would her grandmother be so appalled that Jordan had some sort of hormone problem? Being sick shouldn't [...]


    11. Ok. So after being poked and prodded to add V.C. Andrews's stuff to my horror bibliography, I decided to see if it was really worthy or if my suspicions were correct that it really wasn't horror material . the verdict is that it doesn't make the horror list. It's just a soap opera. Yes, there were a few pedophilic scenes that were certainly disturbing and sick, but there's a thin line between horror and just downright wrong, and this was not toeing it at all. It's just grossAnd it wasn't even th [...]


    12. First of all, no one likes this book.This is probably the only young adult literature that I will ever read - I certainly could not teach it! So, I heard about these books from the UK Guardian newpaper in an article about books way better than 50 Shades of Gray. Saw them at the library (the covers are just awful), and I'm kind of enjoying this book. I can relate to it, having grown up in my grandmother's house and having also experienced "precocious puberty." Will write more when finished. No ch [...]


    13. Let me start off by saying I really like this book. This is the only book, where I had a love/hate relationship with most of the characters. Case in point the grandmother, at times I really disliked her, but at other times I didn't really love the character but I liked her. As for the brother he was alright but reading some of the other reviews on this book, I can understand where people thought he was just strange, I honestly would have to agree with them. The one thing I would warn you on thou [...]


    14. I'm going to start out by saying I did like the book but I did not like the fact that the main character was only 6 or 7.I understand the story is about a child going through precocious puberty and therefore she needs to be quite young but to then add the sexual element of her brother touching her (albeit for his research) and a 16 year old girl molesting her is a bit too dark for my liking. What 16 year old would do that to a 7 year old. It is sickening. I know these are supposed to be dark boo [...]


    15. I gave up on this book because it's too like Flowers in the Attic, which is so horrifyingly good that Broken Flower pales in comparison.Jordan March lives in the March Mansion with her mother Caroline, her father Christopher, her brother Ian and her grandmother Emma. (Seeing the similarities?)Jordan is literally growing up too fast and this threatens to unleash a whole host of family secrets. I might give Broken Flower another try someday. Maybe. But probably not.


    16. Haven't read VC Andrews since high school. Was looking for some trashy fluff, definitely fit the bill and was much, much better written than I remember. Maybe I'll even think about reading the Dollanger series again. Pretty identical features: Absent parents, gothic old money mansion, nefarious grandmother. Less incest (more suggestion?), so that was a less creepy direction in a good way. Not sure that I'll read the others in this series, but a good kind of book to break a reading slump.


    17. The Broken Flower, really isn't a WOW book.I'd say it was okay. But it really wasn't as ''eye catching'' as i thought it would be.It's basically about a young girl having a strange family that doesn't seem to under stand her at all.They think she's a little weird in her own way's.This book would totally be recommended to those who like to read book's about young teenage kid's struggling in life with a certain problem/object/person that they have to deal with to sort thing's out.


    18. It was okay - I didn't hate it, but it wasn't the best thing I've read. There were a lot of random story lines that I didn't feel had - or will have - anything to do with the overall plot. It's the first in a series and I doubt I'll read the rest of it. A lot of the subject matter of this book really rubbed me the wrong way, simply because the main character is a little girl and she's put into some fairly awful situations.


    19. Page 166 so far but seriously, wtf am I reading? This might be the most ridiculous book I have ever read. The author must not spend much time with children if they feel that this is how a 6 year old would think and act. And wth? Talking to a young girl about periods, Orgasms and vibrators?? I have a sinking feeling of where this might be going Yes, the book was as bad as I thought it was going to bee storyline was not good and everything fell apart from there.


    20. Usually I love vc andrews since she's such a good guilty pleasure author but this book was not nearly as good as the others. I grabbed it randomly at the library so it's not a big deal but I was kinda disappointed. Granted it was written by a ghostwriter so I didnt have super high expectations anyway! I will probably read the rest in the series at some point but I can wait.


    21. So, is this about anorexia or something? I don't know. I read this years and years after I had read even the early ghostwritten books and found this just strange and uncomfortable. I have this awful feeling that all of the inbred characters in her books have just kept breeding like in The Hills Have Eyes or that X-files episode inspired by the Jack Ketchum novel that movie was loosely based on?


    22. Well I really loved this, the story and characters really drew me in. I know several VCA fans that don't like this book, but oh well, I did. It has some mildly twisted parts which is a good thing! So I loved it, all there is to say. It had some similarities to past novels but still had uniqueness to it. So I loved it, that is all. :P


    23. Everything you'd expect form a Virginia Andrews novel. Incest, abuse, tragic accident involing parents and of course the mean grandmother. Seems to be back to normal after her last couple of books which have all been quiet short. I hope this is the start of what will be at least a 5 book family saga. Looking forward to reading the next one and finding out more dark family secrets.


    24. After taking a break from VC Andews books I picked up this one about a 7 year old girl who is thrown into womanhood and the curses of it. Then her life falls downhill as things unravel. I actually enjoyed this book and read it in about 1.5 days or so. I picked up the second book to this series and will be starting it soon!


    25. Though this book is definitely as twisted as vintage Andrews, the subject matter is just a little too extreme. The main character is ridiculously young yet experiencing adult themes. A seven year old getting drunk just doesn't do it for me.


    26. It was good just to pass some time. I'll read the second book in the series just to see what happens. This is something that I would recommend to a teenager. Can you tell I was desparate at the library?


    27. V.C. Andrews family is too greedy. They should've never hired that perverted jerk Neidermann. The book is sick and boring The real V.C. did write about very disturbing things, but she was never vulgar. Neidermann seems to be a closet paedo who should be imprisoned.


    28. A seemingly predictable book that is actually very unpredictable. An emotional story that does not leave aside emotion and suspense. A highly recommended book for those who want to see the hidden and hard side of everyday things.



    29. Precocious puberty is real, according to . For Jordan, it starts when she's almost seven. The treatment is extremely vague in the book, though - must be a pill or something. Ian is hella creepy.
