I’m now done reading Go Ask Alice, and I can’t think of any word that could perfectly describe the book but: Haunting. The plot revolved around an unnamed teenagers attempt to free herself from the hands of drug addiction. The book was published in the early 1970’s, so it gives us a glimpse on how rampant teenage runaways, sex, drugs and rape were in those days. Hence, it is safe to imply that these fragile issues are still roaming around the world these days.
Go Ask Alice is a bold, diary-type account slash the perfect example of how teenagers are so vulnerable to the wrong end of peer pressure, I think this book should be of reach to every adolescent, a fair warning to the ill-effects of drugs and other social issues that bug the minds of early adolescent teens. 
I wish the ending was different, in a lot of ways. But we all share different fates, and Go Ask Alice is a real diary. Sad.

  10. whatseatinggaby said: Go Ask Alice is not a real diary, but is instead a literary hoax. It was written by psychologist Beatrice Sparks, who has contrived a few other “diaries” promoted as nonfiction but are in fact entirely untrue.
