Now, this is a good story right here.
I love this Sakura. This pink-haired, weak-willed kunoichi, so reclutant to stand up and fight but doing it anyway (Even if only for a lack of options). Not many main characters like that out there, let alone an OC-Insert.
One thing I've noticed in many of these reviews is a distaste for Sakura's attitude: cowardly and paranoid. I think most of that comes from the fact that she doesn't fit the underdog stereotype (unskilled, but brave and determined). Honestly, if you're looking for that, just watch the original Naruto Series.
Reading fanfics has always been one of my guilty pleasures, taking these set characters and just completely branching them away from canon, making them go through these new, strange situations without changing their core. Many of these Self/OC/Reader-Insert stories have the character in question becoming an all-knowing, unbeatable force of nature, loved and adored by all. We like to see the best of us reflected on them, when in reality, THIS Sakura is what most of us would be like if we were thrown in a new world with these aggressive supernatural humans, sent to our deaths by a village that equals your worth to how much you've sacrificed for it and what can you offer as a weapon.
I absolutely love the tone you set, the grim and dirt of it all. I ADORE this OC/Sakura: cowardly, paranoid and desperate, everything a person shouldn't aim to be, she's as flawed as they come; But there are little moments when you can see something else shine through her cracks and it makes this one of her most beautiful characterizations to me. So humanly flawed. She's not perfect, and that's okay, she's not supposed to be.
The Zabuza Arc was so well done in my opinion, considering this is a Naruto fanfic and certain things are set in stone in order for the story to move along. That butterfly effect of Sakura coming home early one day causing Haku to survive was pure perfection. I also liked that one bit concerning Haku and Zabuza and how this Sakura KNOWS they are supposed to be these tragic/sad backstory characters, but in the heat of battle, fearing for her life, she no longer has any feelings of sympathy whatsoever and wants them dead, it's as realistic as one can get when writing a story about a person stepping into a fictional world.
The only thing I've disliked so far is that the last update was in 2017. I almost don't want to read the last few chapters to make it last. Seriously hoping the writer comes back someday, this will be one of my faves. Ramble-time is over :)

I think it's Konoha giving the warning. Probably
| sleeper mob chapter 7 . 9/1
yet another contrivance to push the plot you want but really, what's new? oh well. i'll just pretend chapter 1-5 didn't happen and this is just a typical story where sakura had an early start but still an idiot.
| sleeper mob chapter 6 . 9/1
it was good the first few chapters, then contrivance after contrivance and the supposed "adult" in sakura's body holding the idiot ball for too long so that her staying in team 7 can be somehow justified. meh.

Naruto aint a murderer he a soldier
Sakuras a cevi she aint part of a ninja clan
Also she kinda deluding herself if she thinks she can not be part of the main plot lol even tho shes the quintesential damsel in destress XD
| Fans del Yuri chapter 26 . 8/10
If you have to trust someone about something delicate, tell your team, they are your second family in any case and they would have more maneuvers when doing something, not much but more than they would a high ranking person and you would be avoiding many other tragedies on your team, example: Sasuke's defection.
Leaving that, I love this story, but I suppose that like many others on this subject, there is little chance that it will be updated.

Gosh that last line killed me. Amazing job! Please keep it up!

Eh Zabuza killed her, Gato paid him, and Naruto is responsible for provoking Gato without being strong enough to get away with it, or thinking his actions and their consequences through. Sakura is not at fault. Ignoring Tazuna may be unethical, but she is not responsible for his life, as he is a stranger to her and has not paid her for protection.
