We were just children when we lost everything... Our parents, our home, our innocence. Once envied by all our neighbors, suddenly, we found ourselves cast off, stranded at a bus depot with $30 in our pockets and no hope in sight. That was when Henny found us.

It's unfortunate a 1 is the lowest rating available. I fell in love with The Flowers In The Attic series the first time I read them. I've been waiting a long time for V.C. Andrews books to be made into movies. While I expected there to be some minor changes - and a few things left out - I was NOT expecting the movies to be so drastically changed from the books - and not for the better either. The names of the characters actually depicted - not counting the made-up ones that we're never in the book are the same. Chris did become a doctor and Cathy did become a ballerina and Chris and Cathy did fall in love with each other from being locked in the attic and only having each other - but beyond that the movie bears very little resemblance to the book. I have no doubt this is not how V.C. Andrews would have wanted her books brought to life in a movie. I'm only glad I didn't waste my money seeing this at a movie theater!
If you have not read the books than I strongly encourage you to do so - than you will understand what a travesty these movies really are.
