About the Book
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.

Tune in to Lifetime on Saturday, January 18th to watch the World Premier of Flowers in the Attic!

My Take on the Book
I remember reading this book when it first came out, but it had been a long time. Getting back into this story I remembered how good the story was. It was a compelling read and was definitely one that kept me entranced from beginning to end. The plot was strong and the characters are ones that draw you in. I was so glad to see that not only did they bring this story back for a new generation, but at the same time I am looking forward to the upcoming movie as well as I know that this will bring the book alive in a brand new way as well!
