Go Ask Alice {Anonymous}
Go Ask Alice
Apparently this book was such a hit when it was published in 1971 that there are more like it.
Would I recommend this book?
No. I would probably not recommend this book because of some explicit details.

Yes. I would recommend this book if you were dealing with addiction of mostly any kind.This book really shows what could happen if you get involved with the wrong people. *

I would rate this book a 4.7
Written by the hands of an actual fifteen-year-old growing up in the 1960's. The moral of the story is brilliant. Despite the troubles of her daily life she wrote religiously in her diary, which at some points seemed like her only friend. She says it as it is and gives an insight to the world of drugs and adolescents.
So... who's telling the story?
Did the
publisher even have a purpose?
Yeah, plenty; learn from your mistakes, and be educated, set goals, be true to yourself.
"I have read some of the stuff I wrote in the last few weeks and I am being drowned in my own tears, suffocated, submerged, inundated, overpowered. They are a lie! A bitter, evil cursed lie! I could Never have written things like that! I could never have done things like that! It was another person, someone else! ... Someone evil and foul and degenerate wrote in my book, took over my life. ... Was it really just a nightmare and it seems real? ... All of it couldn't be true. ... I have two choices; I must commit suicide or try to rectify my life by helping others. That is the path I must take, for I cannot bring further disgrace and suffering upon my family"
