Flowers in the Attic - V.C. Andrews

I went through a phase in 7th and 8th grade where I read ALL of the V.C. Andrews books that were in print at the time (Dollanganger, Casteel, Cutler & Landry series). They're entertaining books, but don't really stand up to the things I've read since then. If my 13/14 year old self rated these, it would be 5 stars all the way, but I've read a LOT since then that's just so good it's hard for these to compete.
