Go Ask Alice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"An important book, this deserves as wide a readership as libraries can give it." Library Journal

Synopsis:

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. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;iandgt;andlt;bandgt;Read her diary. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Enter her world. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; You will never forget her.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;/iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; For thirty-five years, the acclaimed, bestselling first-person account of a teenage girl's harrowing decent into the nightmarish world of drugs has left an indelible mark on generations of teen readers. As powerful — and as timely — today as ever, Go Ask Alice remains the definitive book on the horrors of addiction.
