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.
one of my favorite books!
i love this book so much, definitely hard to put down once you started reading
I think every teenage girl should read this book. I read it the first time when I was 15. I have recommended it to every teenage girl I know, and now it’s time for me to give it to my teenage daughter. The content is a tough read but that’s the point, in one way or another we can all relate to “Alice”.
Not what I expected or wanted, but ok
At first I thought it felt a little inauthentic. Like it’s a book about drug use but the escalation is insane.
It reads like a cop pretending to narrate the life of a drug dealer.
When I looked up the book and found the author was a psychologist, it really all made sense.
I was hoping for a relatable, nuanced book but this was not that. It felt like thinly disguised anti drug propaganda.
Also the ending sucked.
With all the negatives out of the way I kind of did enjoy reading the book, but more so to hear how a psychologist thinks the reality is, compared to what I know and what I’ve gathered from others.
