I initially thought, "What would Mark Anthony know about a young girl's diary?" Well, he definitely knew a lot! This book was disturbing, touching, and very engaging. I am glad I decided to buy it regardless of my doubts. I thought this author was a good storyteller, and now I know he is an awesome storyteller. This book is realistic and seems to be told by an actual young lady. I guarantee, you will love this book!

I love books by Mark Anthony but this is my least favorite of them all. it was just a typical book about a fast ass little girl. There was no twist or turns. I was in shock because I have read way better mark anthony books

I loved this book, there were points that almost everyone can relate to. the book wraps you up to the point they make you so mad that you start yelling at them. lol. After reading this book I realized that the same things going on in this book could be happening to young girls in my family so I gave the book to my sister and demanded that she read it. This book teaches you when you think your at your lowest point there is hope and someone who sees the potential in your life.

In the Diary of a young girl by Mark Anthony, readers are introduced to Shayla Coleman, a young girl looking for love and understanding in all the wrong places. Shayla has lost her mother, has a father that pays her no attention, and begins thinking her body is a ticket to everything. Things are not always as they seem.

Shayla is caught in an unfavorable position that gets her shipped to her aunt's home to live. After the move, Shayla's experiences take a turn in which becomes more than she bargain for. Shayla will soon learn to be careful of whom she trusts and to always watch her back.

Diary of a young girl is the story of a young girl dealing with issues within her family along with trying to find her place in the world. The author provides readers with a raw look at the affects of abuse and neglect. Diary of a young girl is a book of entertainment and drama. I recommend this book to young adult females.

I actually found this book at Walmart for like $6, I had seen it initially on Amazon and contemplated buying it but never did, I was so loving this book, it was so good. I think that it really teaches you about forgiveness and the power of your own strength. It a good book from beginning to end, I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone that just really wants a good read.

This book took me a minute to read, but I finished it. And my thoughts of Diary of A Young Girl... It's sad, when you have noone to turn to, not even your father. My heart went out to Shayla, who lost her mother at an early age. Her father, who just passed her to nanny's and relatives, had no time for Shayla. And for him to ask her for her money, how dare he.. He has not been in this child's life, but wanted her to hand over 125,000 dollars to him.. Even at the end of the book, when Shayla was about to leave for College, he still wasnt man enough to tell his daughter that he loved her. So I have nothing good to say about the father. (AT ALL), I understand that you must forgive so you dont let people have power over you, But that Nanny, Her Half Cousin Earl, The men who Raped her, even her so called friends, should have been dealt with, Shayla didnt deserve, what she been giving in life. But thank goodness Kwame and Andrea had her back, and stuck by Shayla.. So young girls, what you do at an early age will catch up with you in your later years. Be safe when it comes to sex and the people you hang with.. Just My Thoughts.

I really enjoyed this book.I think some of our young ladies need to read this book. The ones thats trying to run wild and think they know everything this one is for you. This was a quick read and a good read. So yes I do think you should read this book.

The book was too explicit for my 14 year old daughter. I put the book away and she may be able to read it in a few more years. It wasn't what we thought - a friend girl told her about it. I read the review but it did not reveal any of the profanity or sexual content of the book
