Publisher's Summary

From V. C. Andrews, best-selling 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.

Great story...

I have been a VC Andrews fan since her first book was published! Yes, since back in the 80s. This book doesn't disappoint. This is a story about a young girl who was adopted as her real father is a wiccan outcast. This girl learns she has a 3rd eye (so to speak) and learns how to use it. It is a good story. I found it enjoyable.

The author, VC Andrews once again does a fantastic job. Loved the plot and the details were great too. The narrator, Rebekkah Ross delivered a flawless narration complete with multiple voices, emotions and so on. Great job!

Combination of coming of age and scifi

This was an interesting read as it took me from what I thought this was going to be about to something far more exciting.

The narrator was good in bringing the story to life. Her inflection used made differentiating the characters much easier.

An Okay Read

This book was an okay read. It started slow in my opinion but the middle and end made it better. I may or may not read the next book to see what happens but it should have left me NEEDING to read the next one.

Teen based paranormal read

Not a bad story at all, a little more teen based and not near as Gothic/twisted as a good V.C. Andrews book but it will past the time enjoyably.... to me it needed more at the end, it needed to hurry through the majority and add more to the end, more to the unraveling of secrets, that part was just a little cut and dry. Also was a more paranormal than Gothic Family Secrets as is the general theme for V.C. Andrews
