I buy every book by this author and have since back in the 80s! This book it much better than I thought it would be. I thought it would probably be boring as it was a diary and most diaries are, however I was pleasantly surprised. This is an actual novel. I love how there were two narrators. The female narrator, Rebekkah Ross, read the 1st person parts and Kirby Heybone read the parts of Christopher's diary.
This turned out to be an actual novel! Kristen Masterwood' is a cousin of the Foxworths. Kristen's dad is contracted to tear down the old Foxworth Hall (after 2 fires) and clean the grounds up to sell the land off. It is here where Kristen's dad discovers an old box and let's Kristnen open it. This is where Kristen discovers and old book which turned out to be a diary written by Christopher Dollanganger back in the attic days.
Until now, the town has only had rumors as to what happened so any years ago. Now through Kristen's eyes we venture into the past and hear the truth according to Christopher. Kristen is consumed by this diary and the rest you have to read to find out what else is learned...
I did enjoy this book. The author VC Andrews, did a great job writing it in my opinion. As always, I wasn't disappointed. The way the book was written, I sat down and listened to this story all in one day! Both of the narrators did a great job reading & delivering this story to us with all their voices. I found this book to be very entertaining!
By the way... VC Andrews was the 1st authors book I read after turning 18 and being on my own. Flowers in the attic was so good, it made me a VC Andrews fan for life!

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes, I would completely omit the new story line about the distant third cousin. I get that the author is attempting to foreshadow future books that are being penned, but it is done in such an obvious manner that it makes the brand name of V. C. Andrews feel like a cash cow just milking it's readers.
I also find it ridiculous that this is a TWO part book. There is not nearly enough information in this book to neccessitate dividing into two parts.
What could V.C. Andrews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Virginia Andrews could not have done anything to make this more enjoyable. But the ghost author, Andrew Neiderman, COULD do some research on how a teenager actually speaks and acts in the year 2014. I have not met a teenager that uses the word "blouse" in a very long time.
Would you be willing to try another one of Kirby Heyborne and Rebekkah Ross ’s performances?
Kirby Heyborne's performance was good.
Rebekkah Ross sounded much too old for the character.
Could you see Christopher's Diary: Secrets of Foxworth being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
ABSOLUTELY not! Let's try to get the Dollanganger's right on screen before, we start trying to add this new character.
Any additional comments?
I will say again, making this book a TWO part book is the most OBVIOUS attempt at needling money out of readers I believe I have ever seen.
