Sage's Eyes

Idgie Says:
"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. 


Sage's Eyes
V.C. Andrews
Series: Forbidden
Mass Market Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Pocket Books (January 26, 2016)

 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.
