COULD BE ANYONE.
COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW.
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.

1 . must read
Posted September 05, 2010 by annmarie , NicevilleI read this book when I was younger (it's first printing was long before this one) and it made quite an impression on me. The only other book that made this much of an impression on me was "Don't Look and It Won't Hurt", about a young girl who gets pregnant and has to give it up without seeing it. They influenced my life greatly.
2 . Very Great Personal book.
Posted December 26, 2009 by Dominique , PhiladelphiaThis book, or rather diary was absolutely great. You feel such a strong connection to the writer and it feels very personal. The chapters, or entries, are very short but sweet. Taught me and many a valuable lesson. I highly recommend reading this book at least once in your lifetime.

Excerpt from Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
Yesterday I remember thinking I was the happiest person in the whole earth, in the whole galaxy, in all of God's creation. Could that only have been yesterday or was it endless light-years ago? I was thinking that the grass had never smelled grassier, the sky had never seemed so high. Now it's all smashed down upon my head and I wish I could just melt into the blaaaa-ness of the universe and cease to exist. Oh, why, why, why can't I? How can I face Sharon and Debbie and the rest of the kids? How can I? By now the word has gotten around the whole school, I know it has! Yesterday I bought this diary because I thought at last I'd have something wonderful and great and worthwhile to say, something so personal that I wouldn't be able to share it with another living person, only myself. Now like everything else in my life, it has become so much nothing.
I really don't understand how Roger could have done this to me when I have loved him for as long as I can remember and I have waited all my life for him to see me. Yesterday when he asked me out I thought I'd literally and completely die with happiness. I really did! And now the whole world is cold and gray and unfeeling and my mother is nagging me to clean up my room. How can she nag me to clean up my room when I feel like dying? Can't I even have the privacy of my own soul?
Diary, you'll have to wait until tomorrow or I'll have to go through the long lecture again about my attitude and my immaturity.
