Go Ask Alice - book review

As I also mentioned on Twitter, it’s quite amazing how well a book published in 1971 reflects today’s teenage struggles.

Go Ask Alice is basically the diary of a young girl, trying to fit in and be accepted. 626 more words

Novel: Go Ask Alice edited by Beatrice Sparks

This book has a lot of difficult topics and should be read with discussion and children and young adults especially (but anyone reading this) may want to talk about some of the themes of the story with someone they trust to be honest with them and in general discus it. 767 more words

Book Review

Go Ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks (Anonymous) | Review

I’ve read this book twice now, and both times I’ve read it I had two very different reactions from one another over it. It’s a very dark, very scary scenario this main character is going through, and the fact it’s in a diary-style format just makes it all the more unsettling. 535 more words
