Overview

Lightning Strikes (Hudson Series #2) by V. C. Andrews

RAIN HAS SEARCHED FOR A PLACE TO CALL HOME. BUT THERE'S NOWHERE TO HIDE WHEN THE NIGHT SKY LIGHTS UP WITH TERROR....

Torn from the embrace of her poor but loving family, Rain Arnold now lives surrounded by opulent riches but feels more like an outsider than ever before. Her heart's true passion -- the theater -- may prove to be her salvation, as she embarks on a journey to unmask a legacy of long-buried family secrets.

Enrolled in one of England's most prestigious drama schools, Rain is sent to London to live with her great-aunt, Lenora, of the renowned Endfield family. Their estate is breathtakingly austere, filled with antiques and a long, storied history. But something isn't right. Rain hears footsteps at night, and the high-pitched laughter of a little girl. She sees strange lights in rooms that are supposed to be closed off. And everything about the place -- the air, the silence, even the somber household staff -- is as cold and soulless as a museum. Behind the icy sheen of wealth and privilege lies something unspeakable. Something that could turn Rain's most precious dreams into an inescapable nightmare....

Whoever ghost wrote the last half of this book made so many grammatical errors I almost stopped reading it. Just awful, every line started to have errors. Using 'me' for 'the'. Very hard to read after awhile.

It is shocking what Rain has to go through in the ghetto with her loving family. She has to grow up quickly than other girls her age because she has to take care of herself and her younger sister Beni Arnold. One day her mother tells her a secret that she has kept from Rain her entire life and Rain wishes that her mother had never told her the secret. Rains life totally changes because she has to go live with the wealthy Hudson family, and at first her grandmother does not like her because she is black! Rain starts to attend a very expensive school with other rich white kids and thats were she discovers her true talent, also thats when she falls in love with a boy named Corbette Adams who plays a role in the school play as George Gibbs and Rain plays the role as Emily Webb. The night after the school play the sparks begin to fly between Rain and Corbette! When the night has ended Rain regrets what she has done with Corbette because when they go back to school he treats her differently as if he got what he already wanted. When Rain thought things could never get worse something so tragic happens and it breaks Rains heart! The relationship between Rain and her grandmother is bonded so tightly Rain realizes it does not matter were she came from its the person she is, that her grandmother will always love her because she has the Hudson blood running through her veins! Hopefully someone who has NEVER read V.C. Andrews book ibrecommend that you read the Hudson series first and if you like the series you should read the rest of her amazing books!

Rain is finally recognized by her grandmother and is sent abroad to England to a prestigious school of arts. Rain isn't allowed to tell the people that she's living with that she is related to them. Rain meets a guy, falls in love, then has her heart broken. The usual, but this book had so much substance because Rain is such a strong character. The ending of the books leaves you really want to read the next in the series.

I loved this book! It was awesome and a bit scary all at once. Once I began reading it, I could not put it down. I had been waiting on this second book in the series, because after I read 'Rain' I was hooked. I most definitely reccommend this book.

This was so shocking and breathtaking I was so upset when her grandmother died that was only person who really believed in her. It made me feel real bad for Rain when her own mom doesn't love her, she just pretends like she doesn't exist. But this book will surprise you in every different way you will feel the same emotions that the characters are feeling. You won't be disappointed.

RAIN WAS A GOOD START OF ANOTHER ONE OF V.C ANDREWS EXCITING SERIOUS. I CANNOT WAIT TO READ THE NEXT BOOK (WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES). I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO READ THE ENTIRE SERIES. THIS IS THE FIRST SERIOUS I EVER READ BY V.C. ANDREWS THAT INVOLVED AN AFRICAN AMERICAN. I AM ELATED.

This book was very good. Everytime that there is another book that comes after one in a series, they only get better and better. This one grabs your attention and it just makes you want to tear up when the character does. It's like automatic, she crys and so do you and when she laughs, so do you. It is awesome!!!! I like that V.C.Andrews is the best author ever!!!

After the first book 'Rain' I just had to read the next one. I thought this book was excellent. I couldn't put it down. You can't read just one book; you have to read the whole series. I mean, you just get hooked and can't get enough.

Thrills, chills and romance are all combined in 'When Lightning Strikes.' But Rain is still losing her dignity day by day and becomming a little whore by spreading her legs and not using her mind and just being plain stupid by letting the lil' gay azz Singing white boy have some of her puzzy and plus the other Rich white boy in VA and even her own 'brother'. When is this dumb Ho goin 2 learn say NO? I bet she is going to catch some Vaginal disease. She might as well become a prostitute rather than an actress. The thing about her is that she tries to make herself look all innocent and perfect but she is FAAAARR from that!
