Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jay was a sweet, bright high school student who cared about his grades and his friends. He had ambitions. He was happy. But when Jay falls in with a crowd that's dabbling in drugs and the occult, he finds himself in over his head and doing things he never thought possible. Fascinated by the dark arts and in love with a dangerous girl, Jay falls deeper and deeper into a life he no longer recognizes. Seeing no way out, Jay tragically takes his own life at the age of sixteen.

Originally published in 1979 (and rumored to be based on an actual boy's life and suicide), this wrenching and cautionary tale is reminiscent of Go Ask Alice and is presented by the same psychiatrist, Dr. Beatrice Sparks. This edition marks the first time Jay's Journal will be sold as a teen book.
