Go Ask Alice




The harrowing true story of a teenager's descent into the seductive world of drugs.

Have you ever kept a diary? This is the diary of a young girl growing up in sixties America – an honest account of teenage life. But as well as discovering new friends, dating and going to parties, the author of this diary discovers something else: drugs. It is the era of free love and experimentation with mind-bending substances. And one thing leads to another.

This book was first published several decades ago as the shocking real diary of a young woman. Whether it is fact or fiction is up to you to decide.

Praise for Go Ask Alice

“A book that all teenagers and parents of teenagers should really read”

Boston Globe

“An extraordinary work- a document of horrifying reality”

The New York Times Book Review

“It shows the awful pressures which plague even the 15-year-old who needs all her energies to cope with growing; the isolation of one who wanders off the track and, alone, finds it impossible to fight her way back”

Guardian
