Giveaway: V.C. Andrews' Family Storms

Summary: In the eye of the storm . . .

Living on the streets with her destitute mother, selling knickknacks and trinkets just to survive, Sasha Porter dreams of someday having a normal life, with a real house and family. But she never dreamed a devastating tragedy would bring her those very things: on a stormy night by a rainspattered highway, a speeding car veers out of control, striking and killing her mother and badly injuring Sasha.

. . . is anywhere truly safe?

In the hospital, Sasha is whisked off to a fancy private suite at the request of wealthy Mrs. Jordan March, a complete stranger who keeps watch by Sasha's bedside and insists she come live at her family's sprawling, luxurious mansion. Sasha soon learns Mrs. March never recovered from the loss of her daughter Alena, and with nowhere else to go, Sasha agrees to use Alena's room, sleep in her bed, and wear her clothes. But someone will make sure that Sasha never takes Alena's place: a jealous sister dead set on making Sasha's life a living hell. -- Gallery

Talk about a blast from the past for me! There is a new V.C. Andrews' book out called FAMILY STORMS. FAMILY STORMS is the first book in a new series, and it has all the stuff we've come to know and love about V.C. Andrews' books... like jealousy and deception!

I don't know about you, but I remember reading FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC and the rest of the Dollanganger Series when I was a kid. Oh, how my friends and I loved them! Looking back on it, I was probably way too young! In fact, my 11-year old daughter is probably not much younger than I was when I first read these books - ARGH!

Thanks to the fine folks at Simon and Schuster Adult Publishing Division, I have three copies of FAMILY STORMS to share with three lucky readers! To enter, just fill out the form below before March 15th at 11:59 p.m. ET. I will randomly select and notify the winners the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only -- no p.o. boxes, please. Good luck!

I started reading V.C. Andrews in my early teens. My parents never censored what I read, both avid readers themselves, but I would cringe at the thought of any children of mine reading some of the story lines... but of course I survived it. ;) Thanks for the great giveaway!

Yeah, I was probably way too young when I read Flowers in the Attic, too! I was thinking about that the other day.

Haha! I was just talking to someone the other day about how I was too young to read Flowers in the Attic!!

Oh, my - I loved this series when I was younger! Did you like the Flowers in the Attic movie? I know there were a lot of conflicted reviews at the time when it came out, but I sort of liked it. Creepy music! Thanks for a great giveaway!

I loved the V.C. Andrews books when I was younger and still do. They are unputdownable! have read several, starting from FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC, but there are so many I haven't and would like to someday.

I would love to win this start of a new series. I have seen the movie version of Flowers in the Attic and thought it was just ok.
