CHRISTOPHER'S DIARY: SECRETS OF FOXWORTH! A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
CHRISTOPHER'S DIARY:
SECRETS OF FOXWORTH
BY V. C. ANDREWS
  ON SALE OCTOBER 28!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Christopher Dollanganger was fourteen when he and his younger siblings—Cathy and the twins, Cory and Carrie—were locked away in the attic of Foxworth Hall, prisoners of their mother’s greedy inheritance scheme. For three long years he kept hope alive for the sake of the others. But the shocking truth about how their ordeal affected him was always kept hidden—until now.

Seventeen-year-old Kristin Masterwood is thrilled when her father’s construction company is hired to inspect the Foxworth property for a prospective buyer. The once grand Southern mansion still sparks legends and half-truths about the four innocent Dollanganger children, even all these decades later. Foxworth holds a special fascination for Kristin, who was too young when her mother died to learn much about her distant blood tie to the notorious family.

Accompanying her dad to the “forbidden territory,” they find a leather-bound book, its yellowed pages filled with the neat script of Christopher Dollanganger himself. Her father grows increasingly uneasy about her reading it, but as she devours the teen’s story page by page, his shattering account of temptation, heartache, courage, and betrayal overtakes Kristin’s every thought. And soon her obsession with the doomed boy crosses a dangerous line…

Andrews® has been a bestselling phenomenon since the publication of Flowers in the Attic, which was followed by four more Dollanganger family novels: Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday,and Garden of Shadows.

Andrews’s bestselling series, which have sold more than 106 million copies and have been translated into more than twenty-five foreign languages.

“No doubt that there are very few readers out there who do not remember where this all began. The Dollanganger books by the incomparable V.C. Andrews are held in the memory of millions of readers. She presented, by far, some of the very best in YA fiction: dark, creepy, that had you on the edge of your seat just waiting for the next one to come out…Taking place in the here and now, teenager Kristin Masterwood has lost her mother, who just so happened to have been a distant relative of Malcolm Foxworth…Kristin finds a leather-bound book left behind by Christopher Dollanganger…she brings ‘Flowers in the Attic’ back to life.  With one more still to come in this ‘journey back to Foxworth,’ this tale is a true escape with moments that bring the past alive and combine it with a frightening present that would make V.C. Andrews extremely proud.”  —Suspense Magazine

I would love to read this novel. Have you ever noticed that secrets and misdeeds are either placed in the attic or the basement? I am ready to find out about this mother's inheritance scheme. Thanks for the opportunity.

I have always LOVED V.C. Andrews! I started reading her novels when I was probably too young to read novels that were as adult as they were (I was probably only 11...lol) I didn't realize there was a new one out...and it looks amazing!!
