New VC Andrews Book Hits Shelves Feb 22, 2011

In the eye of the storm . . .

Living on the streets with her destitute mother, selling knickknacks and trinkets just to survive, Sasha Porter dreams of someday having a normal life, with a real house and family. But she never dreamed a devastating tragedy would bring her those very things: on a stormy night by a rainspattered highway, a speeding car veers out of control, striking and killing her mother and badly injuring Sasha.

. . . is anywhere truly safe?

In the hospital, Sasha is whisked off to a fancy private suite at the request of wealthy Mrs. Jordan March, a complete stranger who keeps watch by Sasha's bedside and insists she come live at her family's sprawling, luxurious mansion. Sasha soon learns Mrs. March never recovered from the loss of her daughter Alena, and with nowhere else to go, Sasha agrees to use Alena's room, sleep in her bed, and wear her clothes. But someone will make sure that Sasha never takes Alena's place: a jealous sister dead set on making Sasha's life a living hell.

What I Can Tell You:
My sister and I grew up big VC Andrew fans and have read so many of her books. Family Storms is a 2 part series and I cannot wait to get book 2.
As man VC Andrew fans know, VC Andrews died in 1986 and her family works closely with a ghost writer who has taken synopsis' created by VC herself and created stories that will continue to excite long time fans of VC Andrews.
Family Storms, is about Sasha who after losing her mother when she is struck by a teen driver named Kiera March.  Kiera's mother takes Sasha in and has her living in her beloved deceased daughter Alena's room.  While dealing with the loss of her mother, an injury from the accident, and now a "new" family situation, Sasha feels alone and tries to be the person she knows her mother would want her to be. She accepts the gifts Ms. March presents to her, handles herself with the elusive Mr. March and deals with the jealousy of a Kiera who was never put first when her sister was alive.
When Sasha shines in the adult March's eyes, Kiera does what she can to make sure they never put another "daughter" ahead of her.
I personally loved this story. It stays very true to the VC Andrews library. I found myself wanting to yell "Sasha, don't trust her" so many times.  Kiera is evil and will obviously be found out, hopefully Sasha can make it out with her diginity and be a stronger person in the long run.
You can pre-order Family Stormson Amazon now.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy from Simon and Schuster for my honest opinion.
