The Diary Of Jane

Thriller / Horror

Prologue

February 10th, 1999-

The family of three was going home after a week on a business trip, A mother, a father and a 16 year old daughter, for her age she was very bright and happy. She was the bubbly personality kind of girl, just starting to take a serious interest in boys, something that her father was not too fond of. Her father was a scientist, she liked science, so she came with him on these trips, they didn’t have much in the way of money, and her father was the only provider at the moment with her mother out of work. Her father had just gotten a major contract that might really change things for them. The young girl kept looking out the window, she pictured herself in a few months from now, maybe a year and she would be driving a car of her own. The thrill of having her freedom, even on a small level, it was the most that she had ever had, and deep inside she really felt she was ready for it.

Both of the young girl’s parents had dark hair, as did she, and looked relatively good for being the parents of a sixteen year old. The mother reached out and turn on the radio, the song “Bad Moon Rising by Credence Clearwater Revival” was playing. It was set on one of those classic rock stations, older songs like this one was all they played, it was all the young girl’s mother listened to. A bridge was coming up that lead over the river so the father slowed down, aside from it being winter the bridge was only two lanes wide and he saw a transport truck headed in the opposite lane. This wasn’t the way that they had intended to take, but with that damn pile up on the freeway, it would take hours to clear it and they would be lucky if they made it back by nightfall. He suddenly lost control of the car, it slid over a patch of black ice. The car slid out to the middle of the bridge before stopping, the truck driver slammed on the breaks, but couldn’t stop it, the transport truck and the small car collided smashing it off the bridge and into the river.

The young girl smashed her head against the seat in front of her when the car impacted the water. Her vision went blurry, the last thing she remembered was her parents screaming her name, “Kelley!” and trying to open the car’s door, it sank and was dragged along by the river. That and the song playing, like it was the theme music to a death scene, then, it all faded to black.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
