Supposedly this book was based on a real diary of one of the author's patients, but that remains unconfirmed. The story follows the diary of a nameless young girl and her journey experimenting with drugs. It only took me a day to read, since it's both short and very interesting. The diary format works well in that it really allows you to enter the world of the narrator in a way that is difficult to do in other formats.       I think every young teenager should read …

     I was given this book by my mother; an original copy that she had from the 70's. I'm more of a modern reader, so I was hesitant.  There is no other way to put it, except for that the book completely sucked me in. It deals with a painful reality, something that many of us are never directly exposed to in our lifetime, and will never take the chance to understand.      A verbatim true diary of a young girl growing up in the age of drugs, this …

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous (AKA Beatrice Sparks) is a book that still bewilders me to this day. it's one of many of such books by Beatrice Sparks, but the most famous and popular. Others included themes of Satan worship and teen pregnancy, to name a few, as well as more different drug use.      Its message is not a bad one, but one gone about in all the wrong ways. This morality tale is heavy handed and as hard to swallow as a cyanide horse pill.      It …

   This was a very interesting book and everything was based on a true story. This book follows the life of a young girl through her teenage years and through all her obstacles and hardship. I read this book when i was a teenager in high school and a lot of the stuff written in the book i can relate to because of where i was in life at the time. That was one of the main reasons it was such a good read, and i am sure many others teenagers like me will find this book a great read as well …

It claims to be a true story (and isn't) but even if it was, it is still a very badly written book.

All parents should give this to their teens and/or pre-teens. It is enlightening.

This is a good read

I believe this book was based on propaganda. The author is unknown and then throughout the story, they make a good girl go bad. Personally, having done the drugs she does, the unknown author is writing it in order to keep teenagers from going down her path. Which is not a bad thing...

I haven't seen or thought of this book in forever! I first read this book only because it came in this bundle/bag of books I bought from the thriftstore as a young person! I really loved it too...

It's been a long time since I've read this, but I remember how intertesting the book was to read.

Dear Abby for all things teen. Not all apply but good food for thought should a category apply, and an awareness that others have questions and insecurities as well

I liked the fact that I didn't realize until the very end that the main character's name was never mentioned. It was an interesting read for the day I read it, which was a day I was super bored and borrowed it from a friend for something to do, but mostly I think it's a scare tactic.

I remember thinking this book was a true story. I was PO'd when I found out it wasn't.
