Book One of the Girls of Spindrift. From the New York Times bestselling author of the Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina series, now Lifetime movies, here begins a haunting new series featuring highly intelligent teenage girls who struggle to survive a specialized high school and find their place in a world that doesn’t understand them.

Such is the burden of being brilliant.

Corliss is not like the other girls at her Los Angeles high school. Incredibly intelligent, shy, and a loner, she has difficultly in fitting in. What’s worse, a clique of girls is out to get her because she’s not down with their games.

On the night of a school party, her refusal to take drugs with the girls leads them to take matters into their own hands—spiking her drink. Quickly, Corliss’s entire life is turned upside down and no one—not even the handsome valedictorian who had agreed to go out with her—looks at her the same way. Just when she’s wondering if she’ll be able to return to her high school, someone mentions a new place: Spindrift. Could that be her way out?

Note: The four Girls of Spindrift e-novellas together form a prequel for Bittersweet Dreams—available now!

REVIEW:
It ended kinda weird.
The story as a whole was pretty good though, and not what I had expected at all.
I liked Corliss. I didn't get why no one believed her, she seemed like a trustworthy gal from the get-go, but still she was doubted when she told what happened one night... that night.
I'm looking forward to seeing what the next one, Donna, is about. I hope it's a lead-up for something greater.

3.5/5

  1. While I like the idea of a special school for brilliant girls, not sure if this series is up my alley. Thanks for the honest review!

  2. I loved V.C. Andrews back in the day, the 80s and 90s. After awhile though since V.C. Andrews died, they started using ghost writers and that's when the books went down hill for me. I think the Logan series was my last. I think I may have started the Orphans or The Wildflowers but did not continue with them.

    1. I agree with you wholeheartedly about the slip of the writing since she has ghost writers now after death. Though as of late, they have gotten better again.
      Fun fact: V.C.'s ghost writers are her children continuing on her legacy. :-)

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
