V.C. Andrews

?% | 1

I don't know if anyone reads v.c. andrews or not. I read some of her books. The ones I read all basically follow the same story line, they all have different events yeah but there are some same occurances in her novels.

All of her characters start out as virgins, but in the first book of any of her new series the character loses her virginity and they end up discovering some dark family secrets and they try to uncover them. Someone near and dear to the main character dies which forces the main character to move in with family that she has never known.

I guess what I don't understand is why in her novels she finds it so nessicary for her main characters to lose their virginities'. I mean realistically speaking it doesn't always happen when you are 15-17. Sometimes it happens earlier and sometimes it happens later.

Take your time don't live to fast troubles will come and they will pass

I have long been of the opinion that V.C. Andrews is a victim of terrible sexual abuse as a child, and all of her children yell "Daddy!!" when her brother walks into the room.

When I was in middle school, other girls were raving about 'Flowers in the Attic', so I thought I would read it and see what everyone was talking about. I learned at a young age that just because something is popular doesn't mean it is good.

I think it is a moot point to try to argue the loss of virginity of Andrews' young characters; just remember that authors usually write what they know. Gives me the heebies just thinking about it. Ick.

I am just me, searching for simplicity.........and a good hair stylist
