I had every reason to hate her, my forbidden sister. She was like someone who had died but wouldn’t stay buried. . . .
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 as defiant as Emmie—now an outstanding student at a private school—is compliant: a perfect daughter, un fille parfaite, as her Parisian-born mother lovingly calls her. Two sisters, total opposites—yet Emmie is secretly obsessed with the mystery surrounding Roxy: What had she done? Where is she now? And is there a hidden side to Emmie that resembles Roxy’s spiteful nature? Knowing only that Roxy is a highly paid escort to the city’s wealthiest men, Emmie goes behind her father’s back to track down the sister she fears, despises, and inexplicably clings to . . . and whose influence might run deeper than Emmie ever imagined.
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.

She sets out to spy on her sister and learn more about her life—triggering a series of events and adventures that could destroy her fragile family for good.
