V.C Andrews truly knows how to captivate her audience in all the novels she writes. In this novel, Orphans, Andrews weaves 4 stories about what love should be, but in fact is not. In each of the four stories within this book, we meet four orphaned girls who only want to find family that will love them for who they are. However, they each find that they are not loved for who they are. Instead, these young girls are being changed into people they are not, and are struggling the grasp the fact that there are "real" families out there. This is an excellent novel. Although it is a bit long, readers will find themselves soaring through the pages and eating up everything that is written. B+

I really tried to get into this book. I love V.C. Andrews, but this book was a dud. I could hardly wait to finish it because I was so bored. The author attempted to catch the reader's attention, but they fell short. I did not connect with any of the characters which is very unusual for me.

This was the only book I've managed to read so far, though I found it to be enjoyable reading material. Certainly made me feel lucky that woman wasn't my mother!

Don't waste your time reading this series like I did. I have this 'book rule' once I pick it up, I have to get through it. Boy, did this series make it hard! Read V.C. Andrews novels, the old classics. After V.C. Andrews died her books have never been the same.

I have been reading this book for a few days now and I come to the conclusion that 'Butterfly', ' Christal', 'Brooke' and 'Raven' or lets say 'Orphans' is a story written in the same old way over and over again. Same plot same problems with different names. Not only mothers have problems when they have to addopt a chiled! I reccomend this book to someone who is dying of bordom.

Butterfly was an outstanding book, only the first out of an emotional four-some. I cried at the end (I'm not one to cry over books), and I was instantly hooked as soon as I read the first paragraph. I recommend this book for women who have not had a deep bond with their parent(s), it makes you realize how lucky you really are. This book is about an orphan girl, who doesn't live up to the expectations of her crippled foster mother. She tries her hardest to exceed her limits in order for her new mother to love her. The foster mother (Celine) is trying to live her dreams through her new foster child, since she herself cannot fulfill her dreams. Janet's (the orphan girl) foster father, Sanford tries to prevent Celine from hurting her. Celine was making Janey do things that were beyond her physical and emotional limits. Finally, Janet's perfect world came crashing down around her. Read this book if you want to find out what happens...

Butterfly: Janet is known as butterfly because of her unusual height for a 13-year-old girl. She meets a couple celine and Sanford and finds out that Celine used to be a graceful ballerina who was in a car accident a couple years back. Sanford of course blames himself because he, afterall, was the driver. Celine adopts Janet for her unusual height because she hopes that Janet would become the ballerina that she herself can no longer be. Janet moves into a house hoping to have someone hold and finally have the loving parents she's always wanted when all she finds to her horror is a controlable mother whom blames sanford for her accident. Janets new found happiness turns into the terror of death. I liked this book because of the descriptive problems she went through.

this was really interesting. so far i've only read butterfly and crystal but i can tell that the others should be as good as these two. a surprising twist in her writing to make this about orphans. i think its a good change.

This book is really good. It makes me thankful I was adopted as a baby by a loving family, especially Raven's story. Crystal had it the easiest. Butterfly's and Brooke's 'mothers' wanted them to be something that they weren't. Everyone should read this series.

I truely enjoyed reading this book. The author V.C. Andrews has a way of keeping you wanting more with her novels, this book will keep you up all night wanting to read more and more. It only took me 2 nights to read the book that is how great she is at writting her books. Orphans is a combo of 4 books put into one inspiring novel, Crystal, Butterfly, Brooke and Raven are the four main characters in this novel as well as the novel that follows. Trust me you'll definately Love this book

This book is a page turner, allthough long, it is a powerfull captivating novel. It only took me 4 days to read, that is how powerfull the author's words are as you see the story through the characters' eyes, you come to love them, and hope the best for them. This is definately a book that will capture your heart.

I LOVE VC Andrews, LOVE her. HOWEVER, this is NOT her. VC Died in 1986 and none of the books since then have been anywhere near as good as the originals. I keep picking them up, HOPING that it'll get better again... but never. Neiderman has three skeletons and all of the books he ghost writes are one of those three skeletons, which a new girl's name and a new location.
