Summary:

Life at 15 isn't easy for a girl if she's shy and hates the way she looks. Each day is heaven or hell, depending on who talks to her, or who doesn't. So when she's finally accepted by a group, she doesn't refuse their party games, even if it means taking LSD. Soon she's taking little pills to wake up and others to go to sleep, and the days begin to blur. Leaving the secure, middle-class circle of her family, she travels into a nightmare realm of hustlers and dealers. Homeless, driven by drug highs and lows, she sometimes tries to regain control over her life. But it's much easier to just get high again. Based on a 15-year-old's diary, Go Ask Alice is the intimate account of one girl's fatal journey into the world of drug addiction. Poignant and unflinchingly honest, her story is a tragedy that is repeated in towns and cities across the country. With over a million copies in print, this book has become a classic.

    This was a favorite book in my teen years, that definiteky warned me iff of drugs, and it still holds up as a great story. It was fun revisiting the late 60s and early 70s fashions, mood and slang. As far as whether this is a realistic depiction of drug use or the normal progress of addiction, I am pretty sure it is not, although there are plenty of drug addicts who live the way Alice ended up. This is certainly not a stiry for the faint of heart. Excelkent narration perfectly captures a teen girl's voice and emotional states. Excellent narration

  • Mary Jane

    Good story.
