Go Ask Alice

Have you ever had a problem? I'm sure you have because everybody sometime in there life does. The book I read Go Ask Alice by an anonymous author is all about problems, conflicts, and how to deal with them.

I would give a lot of information on the author if that was possible, but the author is anonymous so I can not do so.
From the very first page I had a hunch that this book was about a drug addiction problem. "SUGAR & SPICE & EVERYTHING NICE; ACID & SMACK & NO WAY BACK" (page 1). That was a very moving quote for me. I am not sure exactly why but I guess because it shows how dangerous drugs can be.

This book is based on a true diary of a young girl who got mixed up in the drug world.
Alice bought a diary because she had a big secret that she could never tell any of her friends. It really only ended up being that a boy named Roger she was in love with stood her up and she would be to embraced to tell her friends. She makes a big deal out of it, I can already tell she is dramatic.

Her birthday is only five days apart from mine, that is a weird coincidence.
From September 19 through September 25 she goes on about how nothing every happens in her life. She does not enjoy her teachers, subjects and school. She thinks everything is losing interest and everything's dull. I think she just is going through the "teenager blues".

Julie Brown had a party but she didn't go because she gained seven whole pounds. I don't think that seven pounds is a big deal.
On September 30th her father was invited to be the "Dean of Political Science at --------- ". She says that she is gonna become a new person by time she gets her new house and that it is gonna be so great. Good maybe now she will quit crying about her dull life. She says that she is gonna exercise every morning, eat right, clean my skin (what she never had a bath before), be optimistic, cheerful and positive. Why couldn't she of just done all that in the house she lived in before she moved.

Sorry I am being so negative, but this girl is a little cry baby and she is to dramatic.
On October 10th I found out that she has siblings named Tim and Alexandia that she is gonna stay with while her parents go house hunting.
They bought a Spanish type house and they took pictures. She said it will take three or four days for the pictures to get back. That kind of gives you some perspective on the time period because now a days it only take an hour.

She went on a diet and lost three pounds but her mother will no longer let her diet because she thinks that it was not healthy for her.
She wishes she could be like her mother someday. She wonders what it is like to "going all the way" and she wishes she could talk to her mother about things like that.
So far the conflict has not been stated.
All of Alice's relatives met at her old house for Christmas. Alice felt wanted. She wishes that she could always feel that way.
They finally got moved in there new house on January fourth. There she goes again crying about how her first day of school was miserable and how she gained 15 pounds. She made no friends, nobody talked to her, and everybody stared at her and made her uncomfortable.

Both of her siblings made friends there own age.
She finally made a friend named Beth. They have a lot of things in common.
There is only about two months of school left. Gerta is going to a Jewish camp for the summer and Alice is not having much fun so she decided that she wants to go to her grandparents for the summer.

She went to her grandparents for the summer. She has been really bored because all she has been doing is readying books all summer. She has been reading a book a day. I wish I could read a book a day. It took me about three weeks to read this one.

She was in town and she ran into Jill Peters who invited her to a party. Alice has been wanting to be friends with her for a long time.
I 'm a little confused because Alice says that she has...
