When Ana finds a diary in an antique shop with her best friend, Sophie, she feels the urge to write. But beyond a normal teen pastime, the diary begins to connect to real life. The strange occurrences that happen when Ana writes in the diary seemed to be linked. Early reviews of the novel have praised her ability to create an electrifying, mysterious experience that is sure to capture the interest of both teens and adults alike.
An Amazon reviewer commented, “Cursed: The Diary is a suspenseful page-turner, in the vein of Stranger Things, with an original premise that propels a cautionary, tense, and action-packed tale! The teen characters are true to life and easy for the teen crowd to relate to, especially Ana and her best friend. The girls’ high school adventures are controlled by the diary’s mysterious force, leading to serious events that affect everyone around them. When Ana, her best friend, and her boytoy, Jeremy, try their best to get away from the diary’s evil influence, the results are surprising. And what does the witchy, Mystic store owner, Cat, have to do with it all? A great gift for the teen reader in your life!”
S.L. Weiss’s work moves through a cryptic world that explores evil that may lie dormant anywhere—even within everyday objects. Characters and readers must be careful where they look.
