For thirty-five years, Go Ask Alice
, the acclaimed, bestselling first-person account of a teenage girl’s harrowing descent 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.
Jay’s Journal, originally published in 1979 (and rumored to be based on an actual boy’s life and suicide), is a wrenching and cautionary tale reminiscent of Go Ask Alice, and is presented by the same psychiatrist, Dr. Beatrice Sparks.
Though each book is striking on its own, they make twice the impact when paired together in this handsome boxed set, which is sure to captivate readers old and new.
A boxed set of two classic, cautionary tales: Go Ask Alice and Jay's Journal.
