Hey! So I'm still doing the V.C. Andrews Challenge to read eleven V.C. Andrews books in 2009 and also post about them. Although since I've only done Flowers in the Attic and it's already April, you might argue that I'm a little behind. But here's something you haven't considered: shut up! I'll do it! Get off my back, maaan!
Okay, so My Sweet Audrina. It's not part of a series like all the other V.C. Andrews books. I'm pretty sure that's because V.C. just threw ever random plot twist she had available into the book. But she doesn't trust the reader to pick up on weirdness, so Audrina is constantly pointing out how weird this all is. "How come I don't know how I old I am? What's wrong with my memory? Ghosts? Huh? What?"
The ending is spectacularly unsatisfying. After discovering the Big Twist that her parents didn't really have a previous daughter named Audrina and there were the rapes and also a couple of murders and everyone's been lying to her all her life, Audrina is all set to leave. She's going to walk out the door and maybe go try to start a life somewhere apart from all these crazy murdering rapists. And then she doesn't! She basically shrugs and says "Well, they're my crazy smothering mind-controlling lunatics and I'll stay with them."
Okay. That's two V.C. Andrews books. I have to pick up the pace here.
