Missing chunk of book
i don't have a page 139 the book reads up to 138 and then jumps to 150 then proceeds to repeat it's self; so far i am disappointed with Willow and Hannah; you'd think that there could have been another Willow book and not jump into Hannah but the whole book is crazy; you'd think willow would have been a loving mother after all she's been thru; and hannah would have more sense then to run off with heyden; then again in almost every sereis the girl runs off with a guy; i'm going to see if i can return the book b/c of the missing pages and wrong page numbers; but whoever wrote the comment about the missing pages it's worse for my book and see if you can return it; is anyone looking forward to Grace's story??Was this review helpful?

Skip this one
I've been reading V.C. Andrews (both the original and her successor) since the early '80's, and "Twisted Roots" is the first V.C. book I have absolutely no intention of buying for my personal collection. This is without a doubt the LAMEST excuse for a book written under the V.C. Andrews name. All the old cliches are trotted out here...insecure teenage heroine with unhappy family life and distant/disturbed mother experiences shocking incident and runs away from home with sensitive boy from the wrong side of the tracks, meets danger in the form of mentally ill stranger, and is eventually reunited with family while evildoers are punished. Been there, done that. Hannah is so unbelievably whiny and immature that it's impossible to root for her (what self-respecting sixteen-year-old still calls her mother "Mommy"?), the characters are painted in broad strokes of black and white with practically no nuances (when did Willow become such a basket case?), and the plot (such as it is) is both recycled and ridiculous. It's a shame, too, because the DeBeers series started off well...guess the author got lazy. My advice is to skip this sappy mess and read the earlier V.C. books instead. If you must read it, check it out at the library but don't waste the money buying it. Hopefully the next book in the series will be better; if not, I may just swear off the "new" V.C. Andrews.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
