An 80’s Flashback

I just opened a box of review books from Simon and Schuster. In my hands is a the fat  bind-up of the first two books in the Flowers In The Attic series. For those who were not held in V.C Andrews’ thrall in the early ’80s, let me summarize. The four Dollanganger children are being held in their evil grandmother’s attic.  I ate these up like candy in the day and dread rereading with my adult critical mind. I probably won’t but that won’t stop me from recommending that librarians stock up.
Check out that creepy cover!

    oooh, don’t dread it, go for it and totally re-read them now. You’ll be amazed at how schlocky they are yet STILL totally enthralling.Plus it will only take you a day. : ) I re-read My Sweet Audrina this summer after being reminded of it through “Shelf discovery : teen classics we never stopped reading ” by Lizzie Skurnick. So bad, and yet, so good.
