''Flowers in the Attic'' is a novel by Creator/VCAndrews first published in 1979. The first in the Literature/DollangangerSeries, it was followed by ''Literature/PetalsOnTheWind'' (1980), ''Literature/IfThereBeThorns'' (1981), and ''Literature/SeedsOfYesterday'' (1984). (''Literature/GardenOfShadows'' (1987) was much later revealed to have been written wholly by a ghostwriter after Andrews' death the previous year). ''Flowers'' has been adapted twice into film: first [[Film/FlowersInTheAttic in 1987]] and again for television by Creator/{{Lifetime}} in 2014. It is also the basis for a sequel/prequel series called ''Christopher's Diary.'' The latter series, which tells the events from Christopher's point of view, has three of an estimated five volumes thus far: ''Secrets of Foxworth'', ''Echoes of Dollanganger'', and ''Secret Brother''.
