Go Ask Alice

My favorite book of all time might be yours too!

There’s a good book for everybody to read, but I chose to read Go Ask Alice; it is one of the best books in my opinion. It is a mix of every kind of drama, and teenagers would like this book a lot because it has things that kids need to know. This book changes your whole process of life and shows that you should not take advantage of it and live life to the fullest. From beginning to end, this book grabs the reader’s attention; no part of this book is boring.

This book is about a girl that lives a civilized life until she gets hooked on drugs. Drugs change her whole life and she can not get away from them. Her closest friends become her worst enemies when they make her take the drugs and she doesn’t know it. When she finds out about it she just thinks it is one of the best things that ever happened to her, but really, in truth, it will tear her life up and split her family apart. She loses her virginity and loses her family, friends and everything she ever had. She finally starts to get off the drugs but then her friends just keep on bringing them to her and she doesn’t have the strength to resist. She gets worse and worse until she is sent to a crazy hospital, and that still doesn’t do anything for her; she is still the same.

Alice’s story ends in tragedy, and they released this book a couple of years later to inform children and people about the dangerous things that drugs can do. All the stuff that happened in the book came directly from her diary; they just changed the people’s names and it became a great book. This is the best book I’ve read in a long time.
