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 because they can relate to Alice as well. Many teenagers go through the same problems as they continue to grow and get ready for adulthood that is why this is a very interesting subject. What i liked most about the book is the way the book was put together, it was written in a diary format with each entry tell something important that happen during her day. Because it was written in this format it made the book and stories more realistic. I believe this book was written to not only provide an interesting read but also to hopefully give advice and give good examples to its teenage readers so they will never go down this path, like Alice did. I would definitely recommend this to any teenager because i believe they can relate to Alice really well and even learn from her mistakes. This book can pretty much be read by anyone that is looking for book to read.

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 … more
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 … more
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 … more
