"Meh". This story lacked any real fire. Worried parents watching their child at all times, looking for ....something. Girls at school that are, well..girls. Sometimes friends, sometimes mean. One harsh scene that is a vision, not reality. When V.C. Andrews wrote her books, there was always a punch to them. There have been many books since others took over the writing and I'm sure many of them have had a punch also, but this isn't one of them.

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…
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.
