From V.C. Andrews, bestselling author of Flowers in the Attic (the first in a series of Lifetime movie events about the Dollanganger family), comes the tale of a young girl kept under the watchful eye of her adoptive parents, as if they fear who—or what—she’ll become…
Sixteen-year-old Sage is a lonely child. Her adoptive parents watch her obsessively, as if studying her for warning signs of…something. And maybe they’re right to—even she can’t make sense of the strange things she sees and hears. She possesses knowledge that other teenagers don’t, that her parents and teachers—no adult—could possibly have. So when Sage finally makes a friend who understands her alarming gift, he becomes her confidant, a precarious link to the truth about who she really is. For Sage and the alluring new boy at school share many things in common. Perhaps, they’ll learn, far too many things.

Review:

Slow start to Sage’s Eyes by VC Andrews. I don’t feel like it ever picked up substantial momentum from the start which is a shame because the author has a strong writing style.

Sage struck me as a potentially formidable protagonist. However, I felt her character never really evolved past the initial introduction.
The story line failed to hold my attention. I felt quite glum reading this book and I can not pinpoint why. Perhaps my high expectations for VC Andrews weren’t met?
Three reluctant stars out of five from me for this book.
I would love to see this story revisited with more “oomph.”
