Go Ask Alice

To Hell And Back!

Reading Go Ask Alice was a very shocking experience. It was surprising that someone so young could go through so much in their life and keep a diary of it. The story really begins with a normal girl that just wanted to write and express her feelings, but instead her story became a life-changing book for millions of young women. The readers never know her name��"the diary was supposed to be private, but her parents published it anonymously.

It seems like she was just an ordinary girl going through changes, heartbreaks and every other thing that a teenager would go through. Then her story takes an unexpected twist when she starts hanging out with the wrong crowd and began experimenting with drugs. She would always say she would stop, but it only got worse and worse until she ended up homeless and aimlessly wandering the streets. However, somehow she would always ends up right back home.

When she started to get healthy again that’s when all her so called friends started to make her life hell everyday. They even drugged her and she got send to a mental institution eventually she got better she started living life to the fullest! Sadly tragedy struck and life for her family would never be he same.

This book is an eye opener about a young women who went through so much. Part of the tragedy was that she felt that she didn’t have support from anyone. Finally, she broke down��"or DRUGS broke her spirit. Sadly, there is a value in reading this story. Maybe someone out there who would read this book might be going through the same thing. It might change that person's life, you never know! Honestly everyone should get a chance to read this book whatever lifestyle they have. It teaches you that you're not the only one that goes through problems in life there are way more tragic things people go through. It teaches you a very good moral lesson; drugs do not help ease your suffering, it makes it worse!
