Then just as fast, it is going good again.

Yes the characters were very well written, but the originals had a formula as well with these great huge tragedies where everyone seemed to suffer.

Very pleased with service and condition of the book.

Just terrible. But the Mad Libs format would explain everything.

(Girl's name), a poor girl from (cultural background), is suddenly ripped from her poor but happy home and sent to live with her (evil aunt, evil grandmother, real mother). There she is persecuted by her (sister, half-sister, cousin, other female relative of similar age). She is sexually abused by (a teacher, her father, some guy in a swamp, her brother, random rapist). Eventually she becomes pregnant by (her brother, her boyfriend, a teacher, some guy in a swamp) and is left lost and alone. She is tormented during her pregnancy by the evil (nurse, nutty aunt, wife of the rapist, nutty great-aunt).

In this particular book, the last two chapters were particularly "tacked on." They were so different from the entire rest of the series, you have to wonder if someone scratched their heads and said, "But gee, shouldn't we give it a happy ending?"

I'm absolutely done with these books. Andrew Neiderman will not get another penny from me.

I have stopped reading the books that have been published under the V.C. Andrews name until recently when I was at the store and noticed the newest series "Delia". Intrigued and hopeful for a good read I went ahead and purchased the whole series.

I just finished the books and found myself extremely disapointed. Delia is a pitiful character who is a mere shadow of the glorious charaters that the true V.C. Andrews fans love. In my opinion Delia is completely ignorant and put herself into situations that anyone with half a brain could have avioded. She is constantly crying and has no backbone what so ever. Unlike other greater V.C. Andrews books, the greatest hardship that Delia must face after the death of her parents is having to wash a bathroom floor.

And the villans (who can be barely called that) have none of the evil flair that characters like Tony Tatterton and Olivia Foxworth seemed to radiate from the pages. By the end of the book the two "evil" relatives are both loving and friendly with Delia. Hello! What is the point of a villan if you like them by the end?

The plot of this series is as thin as water and makes me long for the wonderful days of the Flowers and Casteel series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It amuses me that this book was released so early. It shows me that the publisher is getting tired of Neiderman's BS. Of course, I would also attest this to the poor reviews and sales of the last few series that Neiderman wrote.

Like all of Neiderman's more recent books (starting with Rain) these books are ridiculously easy to read, with bad metaphors and similes and cookie-cutter villains with contrived and paper-thin plots that even a soap opera wouldn't pick up.

Rain showed black people stereotypically, and the Delia series does the same to Latino people. Poor and rich people alike are also shown stereotypically (Delia v her aunt, cousin, and "father-in-law"), for example). VCAndrews worked hard to give her characters a personality, and for a while (Cutler to Logan series) Neiderman was actually trying also.

Now, Neiderman is just lazy. Like I said, his stories are cookie-cutter, and he thought that by having a Latina main character would garner him some new readers? Sorry, but it ain't happening. He tried to thrill us with a half-black main character, a woman who thought that her adopted father was her real father all along, a woman who might or MIGHT NOT BE LESBIAN!!!, a girl with a nutso mom who made her dress like her dead twin BROTHER, a girl who hit early puberty, a girl who has a crazy best friend, and now this.

VCAndrews would have written all the above characters well, so we could sympathize with them and feel for their plight. Instead, we just hate these characters. Personally, I hated Celeste for having no backbone in face of all the stupid things happening in her life, and I also hated the Broken Flower series the most because it was pointless.

V.C. Andrews died in 1986, after which her relatives basically sold her name. I find it disrespectful that this guy (Andrew Neiderman) would think that he could even write half as well as Andrews could. This book was okay, it kept me occupied but the plot twists were predictable, the characters didn't hold personality traits, and the area that the book took place in isn't accurate (Spoiler: I live very close to Indio/Coachella. NO ONE gets kicked out of COD and especially not for something like going to class high-I know people that go to that school, there is no other way to attend class). Andrew Neiderman's writing is not, and never will be the same as reading a V.C. Andrews book that was actually written by V.C. Andrews.

I agree with the same old, same old opinion. VC Andrew used to write about kids who, in spite of their circumstances, were not raked over the coals like this Delia was. They were ingenious and it didn't take them 3 books to wake up. And if I hear the phrase "in my heart of hearts" one more time, I'm going to barf.

Always wondered if people realized the substitue author was just rewriting VC's original stuff. I tried the Delia series and they were as uninspired as everything since the Dollangager books, most of the others in between I elected to skip. Very reminiscent of 'Perfect Little Angels'.
