Review: "Go Ask Alice" Anonymous

Go Ask Alice tells us of a 15 year old girl who is addicted to drugs. Supposedly this is her diary, but I just found out this book is nothing but fiction. It's not true at all. Nonetheless, I still enjoyed reading it, even though I read the whole book thinking it was a girls real diary.

Personally, I think she gets so hooked on drugs because she is finally excepted. As the story starts out, we learn she is an outcast and a misfit with no friends. When she finally gets invited to a party, she gets excited, and during this party is when she gets served LSD in a soft drink.

She goes through periods of coming off the drugs, then relapses and after a while she does everything just to get a trip. She ends up sleeping with men and women, just to get high. She runs away twice, until finally she stops for good. When she finally stops for good, she gets called all these names and kids threaten to give her little sister drugs, and slip pot into her fathers car so he gets in trouble. Kids can be cruel.

It really shows how the world really is, and how kids can be so nasty.

It all began when she was served a soft drink laced with LSD, ever since she was hooked.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
