Goodreads Synopsis: January 24th After you've had it, there isn't even life without drugs.... It started when she was served a soft drink laced with LSD in a dangerous party game. Within months, she was hooked, trapped in a downward spiral that took her from her comfortable home and loving family to the mean streets of an unforgiving city. It was a journey that would rob her of her innocence, her youth -- and ultimately her life. Read her diary. Enter her world.

You will never forget her. For thirty-five years, the acclaimed, bestselling first-person account of a teenage girl's harrowing decent 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.

Review: This book follows a teenager who begins writing on her dairy because she is in love and she wants to write about all the wonderful stuff that happens to her. But later on in this dairy, life gets hard for her. To the point where she starts hanging out with all the wrong people and starts to experiment with drugs and not just the simple stuff.

 I like this novel dairy thing because it actually feels like a diary. I say this because I don't actually know if it was actually once a diary. So, if it wasn't it actually feels like one. Another thing I like about the novel was how you could tell that these drugs were hurting her through her writing. I don't know overall I like this story line, even the ending was realistic.

Video Review: None because I don't have much to talk about.

Recommends it for: eveyone, especially for people who have never experimented with drugs so they can kind of see how it feels like with out having to go through it themselves.

My Rating: ★★★★★
Overall (Goodreads) Rating: 3.67 Stars
