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. @goodreads
I have loved so many V.C. Andrews books over the years and some I only felt "meh" about. When I first started this one I was really into the book. I wanted to know what was going on with Sage, but then it just fell into the "meh" stage and I really hate that. Now don't get me wrong, I liked the book just fine, it just wasn't the "wow" factor for me, but I'm sure it will for many out there.
Sage hears ghosts whispering to her in the night to comfort her, but her adoptive parents tell her it's not real and to not talk about it. They have all kinds of secrets from her and they watch her all of the time.....
Every birthday since I was ten made me aware that they were looking for some sign, something to confirm a suspicion or a fear. Age was slowly uncovering what was inside me and who I really was. I felt like some bird emerging out of a shell.
Sage could feel things about people, she could see things that happened to them in their lives. She could do other things as well. She tried to keep as much as she could hidden from her friends at school and of course her family.
Then a new boy arrives at school, Summer Dante. He becomes good friends with Sage, but he is not all that he seems either.
It all comes together at the end when her parents and family members finally tell her what she is and what she needs to watch out for in her life.
I think this book is not going to be a part of a series, but don't quote me on that :)
