It had been nearly ten days since my birthday dinner at Chipper's, but a number of times, I had thought about the boy who was so handsome and had smiled so much at me. I replayed his "Happy birthday" in my mind and imagined him discovering who I was and where I lived.

  6. I didn't know about this V.C. Andrews book. It's been a while since I read anything of hers. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I haven't read many of the new "VC Andrews" books. I got tired of the whole exact same story thing. But that is an interesting quote!

  8. The title and cover grabbed me right away, and your Friday56 made me wonder why she's obsessing about the boy (a stranger!) who smiled at her. I'm curious.

  10. I haven't read any of her books in so long. Flowers in the Attic was so creepy. Now I'm curious if the guy will find her.

  12. I was just talking to someone about VC Andrews and Flowers in the Attic. I read it forever ago and still have nightmares every once in a while. I'm interested in hear how this one stacks up in your opinion.
