Mystery / Adventure

How it all began...

Dear Diary, My name is Moana. Moana Felicía, that is my real name. From my old family When I was younger I belonged to a happy family,my real family died in a tragic accident one day. I was out walking in the park with my nanny. There was a gas leak at the house and everything exploded. Gone. Suddenly there was a house and the next moment there was rubble and my parents were no longer there. After that I got put into a care home, I was only 5, it was terrifying. I was so scared and I missed my family terribly. I cried most nights. Then a couple of months later I got adopted by a rich family they also adopted a little boy called Leo he was a good friend....

Leo and I got on really well. He had also suffered a tragic loss. His parents had died in a car accident. Leo was 6 and I was still 5, Leo was also a very smart boy. He almost felt like a brother to me. We would play rope, skipping,dolls,pretend wedding all day.We ever very shocked and really extremly happy when we got adopted together. We got adopted by a really rich family The Richmonds when we got there we were in a big shock. The Richmonds Family lived in a grand house and they had alot of servants and maids. The place was flooded with them. The Richmonds were a very rich couple. Filthy rich. Along with there great riches, came there full and pure greediness. They always wanted more and more. This family never felt as mytruly beloved family. I miss them terribly.

I am actually re-living this memory. I’m writing this 5 years after I got kidnapped. It was a terrible ordeal. I am writing this so I remember my life. So I remember how it felt before... Before I became different. My life feels backwards now. Things have changed. I don’t age, I cannot go outside until it is dark, or use potions in the morning but it hurts me. There are so many draw backs. It was a different life back then, a different time.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care. [Rating: 4....

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.
