Book Review: Ask by Anonymous

ask alice book summary

One day, a boy named Lane tries to pressure Alice into getting him drugs and ends up physically assaulting her by twisting her arm. She finally goes back home, and is happy to be back but tensed about everything in her life. Go Ask Alice is unnecessary proof that sex and drug stories are the best money makers; it helps when they also support a staunchly conservative, traditionalist agenda. Tough and uncompromising, honest and disturbing -- and even more poignant today -- Go Ask Alice is page-turning and provocative reading. And is shelved in our non-fiction section. At Sheila's swanky party, the girls use drugs again. Alice experiences an amazing drift from the boring world, but suddenly realizes it is not right and swears to keep it a one time experience.

Some of my co-workers were discussing this book at lunch one day, and I remembered being super curious about it when I was younger, but for some reason never got around to it.

Gee, only a little over three months! This, however, is the last entry in her diary because she states she no longer needs a diary to communicate her thoughts. People become so dependant that when they're not constantly on, they can't remember what it's like to feel free and happy without chemicals in their bodies. First of all it just seemed unlikely that a drug addict would constantly write in a diary and keep it with her all the time. Last night Doris was really low.
