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. :-)

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

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
