A teen plunges into a downward spiral of addiction in this classic cautionary tale.

January 24th
After you've had it, there isn't even life without drugs...

It started when she was served a soft drink laced with LSD in a dangerous party game. Within months, she was hooked, trapped in a downward spiral that took her from her comfortable home and loving family to the mean streets of an unforgiving city. It was a journey that would rob her of her innocence, her youth--and ultimately her life.

The only other books that have brought me to tear were A Child Called It and Night. This put so many things in perspective for me and I found myself wishing I could help her. I would recommend everyone to read this book.

I really loved the story and the way I could still understand the main characters plight despite our obvious generation gap. This book was fairly relatable, and a great story to read and learn from.

A Must Read

5 out of 5 stars
alex - 12 years ago
Go Ask Alice is classic book on any young adults shelves. You see the ups and downs of a young girls life through the pages in her diary. You see where her descent into drugs and partying brings her. It's a quick and easy read and will leave you breathless. I don't want to give anything away but, i love this book. If you do like this book I would recommend The Perks of being a Wallflower, The Outsiders, A Separate Peace and The Catcher in the Rye.
