I read this book a very long time ago, and it is still something that I recommend to anyone who hasn't read it. It was very moving, and I feel like it is still incredibly relevant now, though some of the experiences definitely reflect the times. This is a relatively short book, and it's very engaging. I think it's a great recommendation, especially for pre-teens or teens.

I first read this book many years ago, and it was very powerful. I always thought it should be read by all teenagers and parents; now I think it should also be read by younger students. It is no holds barred writing about life.

I read this book in 3 hours. Devoured it. Yes, it is very popular among the high school crowd because it gives a voice to a demographic of kids who are struggling with real issues with drugs. Was it really written by a teenage girl? Probably not. But certainly that does not take away the influence it can have in a reader's life.

While many students read this book, the content is pretty graphic. The scenes of drug use and the narrator's experiences with sex are harsh and real.

Since it is such a quick read, it is worth experiencing.

i havent actually gotten the chance to read this book..but i know that its supposed to be a real 15 year old girl's diary. almost everything i've ever read about this book says thats not true. Also, the girl's name isnt Alice, her name is never mentioned, although there is an alice but shes only involved in a few paragraphs of the begining chapters. But still, from what ive read and know about his book, i would recommend it to most teenagers, especially the ones who are experimenting with drugs. Although some of the things that happen in this book arent realistic, i think it would be an intersting story.
P.S. anyone who doesnt feel like reading the book, there was a movie made back in the 70's where william shatner plays the troubled girl's father.
