This book was emotional and eye opening. I loved it! It was about a boy who lost his little sister, parents, and his legs to a drunk driver. He doesn't know about his family's death till about a month after the accident which really affected his look at life and death. He was a total grump when he went back to live with his aunt and when he went back to school. While working the year book, 8th grader Sarah is assigned to work with him. Sarah has a secret that only she knows. He becomes really cl [...]
I have to say this is the best book I've read in ages. I found this book while going though my son's school planner (which has a suggested reading each week). This book is listed as a young adult, but I believe this is more for the teen reader than the younger readers (I'd say ages 14+)The story follows Mike Scott and how he deals with the most horrible time of his life. Along the way he meets Sarah Francis.This book was one that I could not put down. But when I did, I wanted to pick it up again [...]
For ten years this book has had an imprint in the back of my mind. I can still remember the emotions I felt and how gripping it was. I was several levels behind when it came to reading and because of that reason I disliked reading with a passion. However this single book ignited a spark. The characters were real. The emotions were real. The challenges were real. One of the best books I have ever read.
After his devastating accident that left him without his legs, Mike has a negative view towards the world and keeps his distance from everyone in school, but while working in the archives on a special project, a young girl named Sarah brings him around and makes him realize that life is worth living once again.
This was an overall boring book. There's really not much to it besides holding hands with a girl, a history report, and a slight focus on murder. So yeah, don't read this book unless you are a speedy reader who reads anything.
Horrible, boring, I'm surprised I was able to finish it.
Its the best boook ever!
I loved this book to death and was sad. It was full of mischief and suspense. I was sad for Sarah and especially about who she really is and her past.
OMG!!! Loved it soo much One of my fav's!!!!
My very first 'dark' novel. I read it when I was about 10 years old and fell in love. Shocking ending.
one of the best books ever. i could not put it down
I like it. My heart went out to this young man, who losted so much. I think I can understand why he was so bitter. Good story.
I read this years ago and still remember parts of it!
This book has wayyyyyyy too many plotholes for it to keep my interest. It also very forgettable. The characters are meh, the plot meh. I really don't know where the writer was going with this but even the ~twist~ at the ending couldn't keep my interest. Unfortunately, awful.
Mike's life is turned upside down by a car accident one sunny summer afternoon, when a drunk truck driver crosses the median and kills his father, mother, and sister, and lands him in critical condition. He is angry the whole first half of the book, and rightly so - he's lost his family, his home, his direction, his mobility, and his dreams, and has to deal with loss and recovery.Then (when he finally relents and goes back to school) he is given an assignment in school (by a student -?!?) to wri [...]
Mike's family dies suddenly, killed by a drunk driver--who also died. Only Mike is left alive, and he's lost both legs because of the damage to them.While the author doesn't specifically say so, Mike is seriously depressed, and hitting out at everyone around him. He goes to live with his only relative, his mother's sister, Norma. He still has one loyal friend, Robby, and they are the only 2 he allows near himself. Even doctors, therapists and the visiting teacher are shut out.Finally, he goes ba [...]

This book has really stuck with me the last few years and I always find myself in the library staring at it, wanting to read it again. The first time I read it, I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what happened next! The characters, their emotions, and the obstacles they faced just felt real and it had me completely hooked. Overall, a touching and suspenseful story. I highly recommend it.
I currently finished reading this book. And it is totally amazing. Near the beggining I always had this question remaining Why is the book called "Waiting For Sarah" and who is Sarah. I now know answers to some of my questions. This is a very great book and you may want to understand you need to be mature to read this, as it talks about the main character Mike's car crash with his family. Sarah is a very mysterous, out going, kind girl. Who is in grade 8. I kinda think of her as older since I am [...]
When I read the beginning of this book, I was devastated. The accident that him and his family went through broke my heart. He ended up losing his legs, which he then realized that his legs weren't the only things he lost, because he ended up losing his mom, dad, and younger sister. After the accident, he was very stubborn by not eating, pushing away his friends, the staff, and his aunt who is the one who takes care of him now. He is not the happy go lucky person he used to be and he basically t [...]
This book was okay. I liked the plot, but I found that it was poorly executed at times. From the beginning, there was a ton of summary instead of scene. The readers were told a lot of things without being able to see them first hand. I found Mike to be incredibly obnoxious. I can understand him being angry, rude, and frustrated, but I didn't see any sort of emotional vulnerability that made me feel like I could root for him. True, he had been in an accident, but if there had been some more intro [...]
I really enjoyed Waiting for Sarah, it made me think beyond the text. I was a very meaningful book, it also had all kinda of emotion in it from happy to sad to angry. There was also lots of surprises, thing I didn't even see coming. It left me hanging in some places in the book that made me want to read more with I thought was very powerful. The author had great word choice, to made the story seem even more meaningful. I would read it again if I had a choice.
This book at the start I really believed it was gonna stink because it was so boring, and it kept dragging on. As it went on though it got really good and I fell in love with the book it was so good. I love when books twist it up so you don't see things coming but really I suggest you read the book. It does have a deeper meaning and Mike oh my, hes a special person.
Oh my goodness I think this was a very good book. At first I was like ehh not gonna be a good book, but by the end I was lovin it. And she's a ghost like woah what!?!? There are many things that happen that you won't expect once you get to the good part you won't be able to put the book down!
A touching story about a teenage boy who endures terrible heartache as the result of a car accident. Mike goes through the usual stages of grief, but oddly enough returns to the land of the living through the help of a ghost.
it was a good book left me wanting more in the end.
i loved this book
ehhh it would be an ok book if it wasn't so cliche. Well, it also wasn't the greatest writing or very realistic in my opinion. Overall it was just reallyedictable.
I thought it was a good book but it wasn't one of my favorites
