Narrator Amy Rubinate does an excellent job voicing Emmie's insecure, breathy whispers, her mother's French accent, and Roxy's confident tones. Listeners who enjoy family drama, transparent plots, and teenage angst will enjoy this book. - Library Journal

Strong characters lead the way.

The 'twists and turns' here felt more like lazy plot devices rather than something to really move the story along.

Great book which kept me turning the pages and wanted to read long into the night.

Emmie had only heard back things about his older sister, Roxy. How she was a trouble maker and this is why she left. Emmie's father will not let Emmie follow in Roxy's footsteps. Emmie is curious about who Roxy is. She decides to do some investigation of her own into her sister. Will Emmie have a happy reunion or heartache?

I have read a couple books by the ghost writer for V.C. Andrews. I have to say that while it is a nice gesture, the books are not the same. However I thought I would give them another chance. This latest book sounded good. Also, the cover caught my eye.

It is sad when I am more intrigued to get to know more about Roxy then I am her sister, Emmie. Especially when Roxy is the main focus in the next book. Part of the problem was that I felt that Emmie had no back bone. Her father was awful and I can see why Roxy ran away. He may not be physically abusive but he is almost as bad by being somewhat emotionally abusive. So, I wanted to see Emmie grow and stand up to her father. Instead she tried to be the good daughter but used her mother as her crutch to stand on. Also, I did feel she was gullible. Emmie did grow a little backbone in the end but by then it was too late for me.

My other issue I had with this book is that it moved too slowly for my taste. It too a long time for the story to pick up about mid way. The ending was a nice lead into Roxy's story.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Surprisingly, this book is not terrible, hence the fact that I am giving this a rating higher than one star, something that I have not done in a LONG time for the stuff that is written under VCA's name.

The characters are somewhat flat, but the story is still better than the last few books and without a premise that has supernatural junk in it. Emmie is always wondering why her sister was kicked out of the house, and one day she sees Roxy. She wants to confront her sister. There is highschool drama with her friend Chastity (an ironic name in this book) and a teenage boy. I was more interested in family secrets than all this high school drama, it reminded me of the Family Storms series which was a rather blah one.

This story veers off in several directions which are just a waste of time. Instead of learning more about what happened between Roxy and her father (which is supposed to be explained in the second book of this series, but would be better off being part of THIS story) here is the aforesaid high school drama, and then bam, Emmie's father dies about halfway through the book, making for what felt like a complete cop-out plot point to me, an easy way to get rid of a troublesome character. Emmie's mother has no backbone, even denying treatments for her cancer instead of being there for her two daughters. She literally goes home to basically lay down and die even after she has been reunited with Roxy. Ugh.

And then, Roxy just ups and leaves her. Nothing in this book is truly resolved, and even though it was better than the last few books, it is still rather lackluster. The 'twists and turns' here felt more like lazy plot devices rather than something to really move the story along.

The release of a new VC Andrews novel is an exciting time. For diehard fans like me, there is always that tiny spark of hope that finally, this will be the novel that lives up to the legacy created by the original author, despite the number of disappointing releases that have flooded our shelves for the past few years. Capturing Angels, Into the Darkness, Cloudburst, Daughter of Darkness, the two novel Heavenstone series ...

Fortunately, Forbidden Sister is not another disappointment. Set in New York, Forbidden Sister tells the story of Emmie, a fifteen-year-old from a strict family. Emmie has an older sister, Roxy, who she is forbidden to speak about since her father cast her out of their home. When Emmie learns that Roxy is living nearby and working as a high class call girl she cannot resist learning more about her older sister.

While by no means perfect, I found Forbidden Sister to be one of the most enjoyable V.C. Andrews novels I have read since Into the Garden was released in the late 1990s. For once, the novel contained a female lead I actually cared about, instead of simply wondering how she could be so stupid over and over. Of course, there were plenty of flaws--the deaths of each of the Wilcox parents seemed to be a bit too convenient for the plot and I would have liked to have seen some conflict or some kind of meeting between Roxy and her father before he died--just as I would have liked to have seen Emmie stand up to her father. I found the mother to be a rather spineless character and I think that she could have tried harder to contact her long-lost daughter. Oh and there was some dud boyfriend who eventually revealed himself to be a complete douche bag, but I found him to be more of a distraction to an otherwise interesting plot.

I haven't read a VC Andrews book in a long time and while I realize the book wasn't written by her since she has passed on, I really enjoyed the ones I had read in the past and hoped I would enjoy this one as well. The synopsis of the book had intrigued me and I thought the secrets would add to the mystery, but everything was clear cut and dry.

The "best friend" was pathetic, whiny, and annoying. The father was ridiculous and faulty the entire time. The main character Emmie was OK at times, but more often than not she wasn't someone I would care to know, wish-washy, fake, easily manipulated, and just plain blah.

So why did I keep reading? Well, I kept hoping. I hoped that there would be big secrets, a big twist that turned everything upside down, and at least a big ending. Instead it just trailed along, repeating everything we already knew, moving down that road of safe predictability in order to end up at a very obvious and annoying place.
