From bestselling author V.C. Andrews comes a story of a young woman in search of her older sister—and the dark truth that threatens to tear her family apart.


Bestselling author V.C. Andrews unlocks an adventure of intrigue and temptation that shatters the innocence of a girl in search of the sister she’s never known.

Emmie Wilcox was only six when her older sister, Roxy, was thrown out of their New York City apartment. Their stern father’s military-style rules left no room for rebellion, and Roxy was continually defiant and rebellious. Emmie, now an outstanding student at a private school, is obedient, respectful, a fille parfaite, as her Parisian-born mother lovingly calls her. Two sisters, total opposites—yet Emmie is secretly obsessed with the mystery and imposed silence surrounding Roxy: What had she finally done to deserve being cast out of her home? Where is she now? Emmie can’t help but wonder if there is a hidden side to her that resembles Roxy’s defiant nature. Sometimes she fantasizes that she is more like Roxy than she appears. Sometimes she wants to be. She wants excitement, and being a good girl all the time is harder than it seems. Finally learning that Roxy is a highly paid escort to wealthy and powerful men, Emmie goes behind her father’s back to track down and spy on the sister she can’t help but be fascinated with, a sister whose influence might run deeper than Emmie ever dreamed.

In a tale twisting with heart-pounding suspense, shocking revelations, and the compelling family drama for which V.C. Andrews is known, Forbidden Sister introduces two new original heroines to capture any reader’s imagination.

I have read every one of vc andrews books but this one had absolutly no substance.  Maybe if your a 12 or 13 year old.  wasted my time and money.  This is my first review and only writing this one because I was so VERY disappointed.  I don't know who the ghost writer is but whoever it is does not have vc andrews' talent for writing.  I felt like I was reading a Nancy Drew book.  Sorry.

This was so boring and I feel like they took my money. I have read all of VC Andrews books and never did I feel this way. 267 short pages *thank God* and it sounds like a first grader wrote it describing her sister. Dont waste your money!

FORBIDDEN SISTER by V.C. Andrews is a Women's fiction/contemporary women/coming of age story. I read this author's works years ago,but this is my first by the ghost writer. A slow start to me,veers off the plot path several times,and reads more like a teen fiction or coming of age story. With high school drama,stages of puberty,teenage angst,poverty and family secrets. "Forbidden Sister" was a let down to me. I was left with a lot of unanswered questions until the next book. But it does encourage the next book,which is Roxy's story. Received for an honest review from the publisher. **Coming in September 2013 "Roxy's Story"** RATING: 3 HEAT RATING: SWEET REVIEWED BY: AprilR, My Book Addiction Reviews

I have always enjoyed reading VC Andrews books. This one was a little slow and somewhat predictable, but yet an alright book nonetheless.

Forbidden sister, V. C. Andrews It’s interesting how this book begins with the younger sister wondering, and longing for a connection to her older sister, whom she hasn't seen since she was seven years old. I find the connection too close to home, my older sister moved out when I was five; she was going to her last year of high school in the US while my dad moved to Germany because of the military. I can understand the desire to share your thoughts, and your life lessons with someone else who would know more then you. I wish I could have had the opportunity to share those growing pains with my sister, but with her so far away it never came true. I find the darkness in the book as a blow to the heart, how will the family survive the loss of the father? How Emmie deals with her father’s death and her mother’s health problems would inspire many children. She learns that she cannot handle everything herself, despite her parents’ good upbringing, she needs someone to rely on. But who could she trust, the family she does not remember in France, or the Aunt and Uncle here who are estranged from the family? This is a dynamic captivating story, of life’s lessons and learning to gain your own footing despite the hardships placed in front of you.

This is the best book by V.C. Andrews in a long time. I loved it. It leaves you with a lot of unanswered questions, but I think they'll be answered in the sequel. And don't go by what the summary says or you'll be confused.
