'Girl In The Shadows', refreshingly, does not stick rigidly to that template and is the first V.A. book in a long time not to do so. It does admittedly feature a young woman named April who goes to live in a new place, but with people who are initially complete strangers. Plus, the turmoil she experiences there, and the characters she meets, are somewhat different to the usual V.A. fare. These include a young deaf woman named echo, her tutor and Echo's grandmother, who has raised her. As the story progresses, April matures into a thoughtful young woman who helps Echo and her grandmother a great deal, whilst learning a lot about herself.
The theme of sexuality plays a part, as is usual with V.A. novels, but this time around, bisexuality is touched on. The story is generally well-plotted, the characters are interesting and engaging to read about, and this book is a definite page-turner.
Really, Virginia Andrews fans and those new to her will enjoy reading this. It's an engaging, vivid and enjoyable read.
