Drunk Book Club: My Sweet Audrina

The author behind Flowers in the Attic wrote about more Southern Gothic-flavored things while handling a bunch of sensitive issues poorly. Seriously, mind the content warnings on this one.

Audrina lives in the shadow of her dead older sister, who was not only perfect in every way but had the exact same name. She’s definitely a real, different person, which is why Audrina’s dad is constantly pushing her to recover her sister’s memories. Welcome to VC Andrews Land, where the protagonists are not like other girls, the sentences are purple, and all of the men are rapists.

This one is a doozy for CONTENT WARNINGS: child abuse, sexual abuse, sexual assault, misogyny, ableism, and spousal abuse. All of which this book handles very, very badly.
