Petals on the Wind - Movie and Re-release of the Paperback!

Photo: May, part 2!!!!!  Let the naughty continue. Idgie Says:
All of us "of a certain age" remember this Flowers in the Attic series very well!  The dirtiness and naughtiness of it.  The very taboo subjects of loveless and cruel mothers and incest.  The poisoning of children.  All of it made such a strong impression on us at the time.  A young adult read that most certainly should not have been such!

Flowers in the Attic was made into a movie last year and while I never watched it, I hear it received good reviews.  Now the next book in the series is coming out as a movie, and newly re-released paperback!  Remember this one?  Cathy, dangling all her men - including her brother - by her very pretty fingers... until one man loses his temper a little too much.  Then Cathy decides to take her own revenge, on Mamma  and Nana....  Again, this book is nasty, twisted, and totally unable to put down. 

V.C. Andrews wrote these herself - these are not by the ghost writer they use now - and it definitely shows.  This is the good stuff!
