#106: Forbidden Sister - V.C. Andrews

Emmie Wilcox was only six when her older sister, Roxy, was thrown out of their New York City apartment. Their stern father’s military-style rules left no room for rebellion, and Roxy was as defiant as Emmie—now an outstanding student at a private school—is compliant: a perfect daughter, un fille parfaite, as her Parisian-born mother lovingly calls her. Two sisters, total opposites—yet Emmie is secretly obsessed with the mystery surrounding Roxy: What had she done? Where is she now? And is there a hidden side to Emmie that resembles Roxy’s spiteful nature? Knowing only that Roxy is a highly paid escort to the city’s wealthiest men, Emmie goes behind her father’s back to track down the sister she fears, despises, and inexplicably clings to . . . and whose influence might run deeper than Emmie ever imagined.

AUTHOR BIO:
One of the most popular authors of all time, V.C. Andrews has been a bestselling phenomenon since the publication of the spellbinding classic Flowers in the Attic. That blockbuster novel began the renowned Dollanganger family saga, which includes Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows. Since then, readers have been captivated by more than sixty novels in nearly twenty bestselling series. V.C. Andrews’s novels have sold more than 106 million copies and have been translated into twenty-two foreign languages.


REVIEW:
In true V.C. Andrews fashion, this story was fantastic!
It didn't have the mystery I was used to, but it still had high amounts of intrigue. Some very sensitive subjects dominate the book, but some valuable lessons are learned from them. 
Strong characters lead the way. I really enjoyed Emmie, whom this book is centered around, but Roxy is quite interesting to me too. Like Emmie, needing to know what happened became the sole focus for me. I had to keep reading until the story could fully come together, and disliked taking breaks or having to put the book down at all.
Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the next book in the series. It focuses on Roxy.


5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
