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.

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

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
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.

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
