Picking up where Christopher's Diary: Secrets of Foxworth leaves off, Kristin Masterwood and her boyfriend up the ante - by going into her attic to re-enact scenes described in Christopher Dollanganger's journal.
Jealousy, tragedy, survival, and revenge - the discovery of Christopher's diary in the ruins of Foxworth Hall brings new secrets of the Dollanganger family to light and obsesses a new generation. With Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind both now major Lifetime TV events, the first new Dollanganger stories in nearly 30 years is a timely look at the events in the attic - from teenage Christopher's point of view.
Christopher Dollanganger was 14 when he and his younger siblings - Cathy and the twins, Cory and Carrie - were locked away in the attic of Foxworth Hall, prisoners of their mother's greedy inheritance scheme. For three long years he kept hope alive for the sake of the others. But the shocking truth about how their ordeal affected him was always kept hidden - until now.
Seventeen-year-old Kristin Masterwood is thrilled when her father's construction company is hired to inspect the Foxworth property for a prospective buyer. The once grand Southern mansion still sparks legends and half-truths about the four innocent Dollanganger children, even all these decades later. Foxworth holds a special fascination for Kristin, who was too young when her mother died to learn much about her distant blood tie to the notorious family.
Accompanying her dad to the "forbidden territory", they find a leather-bound book, its yellowed pages filled with the neat script of Christopher Dollanganger himself. Her father grows increasingly uneasy about her reading it, but as she devours the teen's story page by page, his shattering account of temptation, heartache, courage, and betrayal overtakes Kristin's every thought. And soon her obsession with the doomed boy crosses a dangerous line....

V.C. Andrews is rolling over in her grave.
I’m so scared for our lives. We have to get out of here NOW before we die! Let me just take some time to write 50 pages in my diary before we go.This was the most long winded boring book I’ve ever read. If you removed all the unnecessary parts of this book and its prequel, it might make one, slightly interesting book. Most of this book is filler as the main teenage Protagonist Kristen, analyzes over and over again, how reading Christopher’s Diary effects every single part of her life. Her father is worried about her reading it because he doesn’t want it to uncover any of their family secrets, as she is a distant relative of the Foxworths. Since there is no real conflict in this book, her father’s concern, has to be mentioned at least 10 times per chapter, as does Kristen’s paranoia that one of her friends is going to find out about the diary. Besides that, the diary has no real impact on Kristen’s life and the plot is forced and ridiculous.As Kristen and her boyfriend Kane read the diary, I kept waiting for some new mysteries about what happened to the Dollanganger children to be revealed. I was disappointed as Christopher’s Diary is a complete retelling of Flowers in the Attic. It offer’s absolutely NOTHING new. Christopher’s sexual feelings for his sister, are explored since this book is from his point of view. But since his feelings for Cathy are clearly obvious in Flowers in the Attic, this book offers NOTHING new about their relationship.Also, during their last days in the attic, as Chris and Cathy were planning their escape, it is highly unlikely that Chris would have time to write page after page in a diary he was planning to leave behind.
If V.C. Andrews was REALLY the one who wrote it, yes.
The voice acting was great.
ANGERThe last scene of the book is so ridiculous, and it makes the plots of all the Flower’s Sequels impossible, as a character whose death impacts every character in the original Dollanganger series, suddenly never really died.
