Sage’s Eyes by VC Andrews

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.

I hadn’t read a VC Andrews book in years. They all seemed to follow a set pattern and it really just stopped appealing to me. I decided to take a chance with Sage’s Eyes. I don’t regret it, but I’m not super stoked either.

 

Sage’s Eyes is about a girl with the ability to see things she shouldn’t. I felt really bad for her throughout the story. She really gets the short end of things, which really isn’t a surprise considering this IS a VC Andrews book. Her adoptive parents are very tight lipped about anything family oriented and have tried their best to shelter from pretty much everything.

 

I didn’t love this book, but I didn’t dislike it either. For me, it was really just an ok read. I liked it, but not so much that I was dying to recommend it to everyone I know. The story was interesting, and the writing was as good as I remember it ever being. I liked the supernatural elements that were included, and it did keep me wondering just what was going on. That twist at the end is killer though.

 

I do think the author writing as VC Andrews did a great job of keeping true to her writing style. If I didn’t know she had died years ago, I never would have been able to tell the difference.

 

I can’t say there was anything really wrong with this book, I’m sure there are tons of other people out there who will love it, but it just wasn’t completely for me.
