Corliss (The Girls of Spindrift #1)
by V.C. Andrews
Publisher:Pocket Star
Release:June 12th 2017
Genre: Fiction- YA: Contemporary
How I got it: Received a copy from the publisher

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina series, now Lifetime movies, comes a haunting new novella featuring a mysterious, highly intelligent teenaged girl as she struggles to survive high school and understand her place in this complex, sometimes dangerous world.

Corliss is not like other girls at her Los Angeles high school. Incredibly intelligent, shy, and a loner, she has difficultly in fitting in. What’s worse, a clique of girls is out to get her after she refuses to take drugs with them, leading to a violent confrontation. When Corliss is unknowingly drugged, her entire life is turned upside down and no one—not even the handsome valedictorian who had agreed to go out with her—looks at her the same way. Will she be able to return to her high school or is there another path she can take? And where will it take her?

Review:
This was a quick read. It was a pretty standard YA, taking on some tougher issues such as drugs and sex. Yeah there's a sex scene, but it's fairly tame. This felt like more of a beginning than a full story, a way to introduce us to the series.
I have to admit I felt bad for Corliss, but at the same time she was a bit to perfect. I couldn't picture her the way she was described. In my head no matter how much I tried she was this mousy little thing nothing like Beyonce, who she was described as looking like. I have to be honest I kind of saw the conflict coming, Seriously teen girls can be horrible.
Overall a decent read, and a good introduction to the The Girls of Spindrift series.
