Go Ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks

Originally published in 1971 as a scare book for teenagers, Go Ask Alice was pushed on the public as a real diary of a troubled teenage girl sometime between 1968 and 1971, the author listed as “Anonymous.”  The book is the “Reefer Madness” of literature, not only because of the gross exaggerations concerning various drugs, but because the character of the teenage girl rings about as false as a character possibly can. 454 more words

I’m not really sure...

“I’m not really sure which parts of myself are real and which parts are things I’ve gotten from books.”
