Shares new insights into the Dollanganger family saga from the perspective of Christopher.

Simon and Schuster
Jealousy, tragedy, survival, and revenge—the discovery of Christopher’s diary in the ruins of Foxworth Hall brings new secrets of the Dollanganger family to light and obsesses a new generation. With Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind both now major Lifetime TV events, this first new addition to the Dollanganger story in nearly thirty years is a timely look at the events in the attic—from teenage Christopher’s point of view.

And don’t forget to preorder the follow-up, Christopher’s Diary: Echoes of Dollanganger!

Christopher Dollanganger was fourteen when he and his younger siblings—Cathy and the twins, Cory and Carrie—were locked away in the attic of Foxworth Hall, prisoners of their mother’s greedy inheritance scheme. For three long years he kept hope alive for the sake of the others. But the shocking truth about how their ordeal affected him was always kept hidden—until now.

Seventeen-year-old Kristin Masterwood is thrilled when her father’s construction company is hired to inspect the Foxworth property for a prospective buyer. The once grand Southern mansion still sparks legends and half-truths about the four innocent Dollanganger children, even all these decades later. Foxworth holds a special fascination for Kristin, who was too young when her mother died to learn much about her distant blood tie to the notorious family.

Accompanying her dad to the “forbidden territory,” they find a leather-bound book, its yellowed pages filled with the neat script of Christopher Dollanganger himself. Her father grows increasingly uneasy about her reading it, but as she devours the teen’s story page by page, his shattering account of temptation, heartache, courage, and betrayal overtakes Kristin’s every thought. And soon her obsession with the doomed boy crosses a dangerous line…

Disappointing. A long, drawn-out, rather boring tale of a girl reading a diary and obsessing endlessly about someone who has very few real connections to her world. I felt the writing, tho supposedly set in 2003, was very old-fashioned and I don't really think it was worthy of the name V.C. Andrews. The Attic stories are played out - don't bother with it.

I have always enjoyed Flowers in the Attic so I was curious to see what happened afterward.

Off course I love the book. I always was intrigue on whats was Christopher were thinking and his feeling. he wanted to be strong, and actually he was. in the other hand I like the Kristin story too, I was kind of thoughtful..

If you watched the movie, you don't really need to read the book unless you want to find out about the girl's life who is reading the diary..

Would have been far better if it was really a book-length look at Flowers in the Attic from Chris' perception but instead it's a pretty eye-rolling story about a girl finding the diary and reading snatches of it at a time
