When I was a teenager, someone gave me V.C. Andrews’ FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC.
If you’ve read the book, let me just say I could never eat powdered donuts again without having a serious think about it first. And don’t get me started on those freakishly messed up gorgeous siblings who just couldn’t keep their hands off each other. The book was banned for a reason, oh yes.
But Lifetime has brought the book to a whole new generation of readers, with a movie version which aired last weekend. And now they’ve ordered the sequel, IF THERE BE THORNS, so it looks like fans of the entire terrifying series will have something else to PVR soon.
Did you watch it?
