Petals On The Wind - V.C. Andrews

Disturbing!
Disturbing in a good way though. The story is engaging. I was on a ride of emotions, upset at times at what I was reading.
Cathy started to piss me off at one point. Like, how can one person be so filled with malice and spite?! All she could think about was revenge.Yeah, it made for good reading, but there was a part of me that wondered why she couldn't knock it off already.
Then I realized how strong I felt showed how pulled into the story I really got. Must be good, solid writing.
No, it wasn't as good as Flowers In The Attic, but it had good moments. 
When I read this one as a teen, I wasn't as disturbed. I think being a mother now added to that a lot. I am looking forward to watching the film adaption to this now too. I like when books are brought to life.
As a heads up for fans, the rest of this series is signed for movie adaptions as well. That means we all best get reading!
