This was a difficult read....so contradictory at times and so downright wierd and confusing that I dont know how I finished it....but I did and I'm glad I did. The author feels young and green. The editing needed so much work. That being said, I think the concept and idea was pretty great! It kept you wondering and even keeps you thinking about it after you have finished. There is some raw talent here. With some serious editing polishing this little book could have been great. The plot was quite interesting. Good luck on your next attempt anonymous author...if you publish under the same anon name, I wouldnt mind reading what you come up with. I am actually hoping you will continue with Sarahs story....

This is a spell-binding book filled with intrigue woven masterfully into a beautifully written story of a young girl¿s quest to find her missing parents. Each entry in her diary keeps you wondering what¿s in the next one. Once you begin reading this book, you will find it difficult to stop.

I find this book to be, quiet...interesting. I recommend this for the stronger readers, meaning those who can easily watch horror movies at midnight with the lights off and won't pee their pants when the killer calls the phone. Though the weaker readers, such as myself, can read it too; just with the lights on at like 2 pm. I say this because even describing it gave me the chills last night when I looked around my house(in the dark spots mostly plus the windows).
But All in All, it's a good book :)

Looking for a chilling account that is steeped in suspense and mystery? Sarah’s Diary by Tshombe Amen will fit the bill. After moving from Phoenix to southern California with her family, Sarah goes through some difficult transitions, just as every fourteen-year-old would. When she made friends with Ericka, she began to feel like she was fitting in and could finally put Arizona and her old friends behind her. When Ericka mysteriously disappeared and the truth about Ericka’s family began to be brought to light, Sarah became paranoid. When her own parents ended up going missing and were assumed dead, she knew that whoever had killed Ericka and her parents had killed hers too. As she and her brother, Jason, are taken in by her aunt and uncle, things begin to seem normal and she starts to make new friends, but even Jason is acting weird and she’s afraid of him. With Jason away at a drug rehab facility, Sarah is finally beginning to have a normal life. She meets some new friends, is discovered by a wealthy teen named Owen, and begins to settle into a wonderful life. Will it all last? Is it all real?
The reader is drawn along in Sarah’s Diary in such a natural way that it seems as if every word written has to be true, but was it? Tshombe does an excellent job of bringing out the perception of events from the perspective of only one person and has the reader believing it all the way through. After being emotionally tied to the author of the diary, the mystery and suspense deepen with each event that takes place. The author alternates between stirring up suspense and dropping the reader back into a more relaxed and realistic state, making each twist and turn seem normal. Top notch work! You’ll love it from beginning to end and will come away wondering if it was really true.

I started reading Sarah's Diary and couldn't put it down until I was done. I was still curious after I read and started searching for Sarah online too! Is this story real or fiction? I'm still not sure. Which makes me think they achieved their goal. Pure mystery and suspense through the eyes of a teenage girl. If they make a sequel I really want to read it! I want to know what happened to Sarah!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have never read any story like this and i have been reading fot 50 years. When you finish it you think, hmm i missed something. I have read it twice with an hour break in between and picked up things in the second reading i missed in the first. I intend to read it again. I thought it was an amazing story. This writer has a great future ahead of him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
