    Go Ask Alice by Anonymous, Beatrice Sparks (Editor)
    Reading level: Young Adult

    The torture and hell of adolescence has rarely been captured as clearly as it is in this classic diary by an anonymous, addicted teen. Lonely, awkward, and under extreme pressure from her "perfect" parents, "Anonymous" swings madly between optimism and despair. When one of her new friends spikes her drink with LSD, this diarist begins a frightening journey into darkness. The drugs take the edge off her loneliness and self-hate, but they also turn her life into a nightmare of exalting highs and excruciating lows.

    Although there is still some question as to whether this diary is real or fictional, there is no question that it has made a profound impact on millions of readers during the more than 25 years it has been in print. Despite a few dated references to hippies and some expired slang, Go Ask Alice still offers a jolting chronicle of a teenager's life spinning out of control.

    Alice
    COULD BE ANYONE.

    Alice
    COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW.

    Alice
    USES DRUGS.

    With over a million copies in print, Go Ask Alice has become a classic of our time. This powerful real-life diary of a teenager's struggle with the seductive -- often fatal -- world of drugs and addiction tells the truth about drugs in strong and authentic voice. Tough and uncompromising, honest and disturbing -- and even more poignant today -- Go Ask Alice is page-turning and provocative reading.

    This book is a fraud, often foisted upon unsuspecting teenagers as
    non-fiction. Sparks has admitted that there is no Alice, that the diary is
    cobbled together from her experiences with teens. Even as fiction it has
    little credibility among teens with critical thinking skills, since the book's
    premise asks the reader to suspend disbelief long enough to accept that
    someone can go from being unwittingly dosed at a party to shooting
    heroin intravenously within a space of a few weeks.

    Another of Sparks' works, Jay's Journal, has also been questioned for its
    authenticity. It likewise suffers from the same hyperbolic narrative which
    teens able to get past the occult sensationalism will recognize as a
    middle-aged woman trying to scare the heck out of them. Pay no
    attention to the man behind the curtain. . .

    If you don't think "someone can go from being unwittingly dosed at a
    party to shooting heroin intravenously within a space of a few weeks" I
    encourage you to get some drug education. I've been in the business for
    over 20 years and have seen this kind of rapid progression numerous
    times. There is even some recent research that indicates that addiction
    can be immediate for some folks upon first use.
    I have also used this book with teens over the years and have found it to
    be an excellent teaching tool when used with some informed guidance.
    Please don't add to the confusion about Go Ask Alice with even more
    naivete.

    I liked this book, and even if there was no Alice, teens all around America do do the things that Alice did. Teens get high on drugs or drunk and get crucially raped, are lost in a reality world, and have mixed feelings about their sexuality. I thought this book portrayed an excellent job of a little girl who met the wrong people and completely ruined her life. Beatrice Sparks did an awesome job if she made this up!!

    I think this book was very lame. It was cliched beyond belife. Yes drugs are bad, I've used my fair share of them. Along with my friends, and though there are various degrees of what happens to users. '

    I think "Go ask alice" is a simply tactic to scare and frighten kids into not using drugs and the dangers of what happened. I highly doubt this book contains any realness to it. Despite the drugs and trips. It sounded like a bad movie the 60's written by someone old enough to have grown up in the hippie era of life. That listened to Jefferson airplanes "White Rabbit" one to many times!

    I give the book a 4
