She had a very supportive family which most people could only dream of having. Within months, she was hooked, trapped in a downward spiral that took her from her comfortable home and loving family to the mean streets of an unforgiving city. This is all an accident, but it is an accident that irreparably changes a life. I'm sure I'm not the only reader who believes, that characters don't have to be real to make an impact. When analyzing the text, it can be argued that Alice in Wonderland is in fact a fantastical fairytale, encompassing an abundance of important fairytale elements.
I tried so hard to get through it, I kept thinking surely it must get better. She's desperate and slowly going insane. It's a wake up call kind of book. No 16 year old girl says that. Go Ask Alice is a cautionary tale, sure.
Go Ask Alice was an important book for me; I can honestly say I've never run to the computer so fast to type out a review, good or bad, before. Soon she meets Beth, a Jewish neighbor, and the two become fast friends. Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose Go Ask Alice was a fake, but Dear Nobody is an actual, legitimate unless someone finds otherwise reproduced diary of a teenage girl. I was going to shelve this book on my Crap Authors or Unreadable Books shelves, but actually in a kind of train-wreck way it was rather enjoyable. You may ask why, but there are people out there who are afraid to speak up.
She bumps into one girl she used to know who went to her school, and gets invited to a party. Using careful descriptions and attitudes, Walker demonstrates which factors contribute to the values of one's heritage and culture; she illustrates that these are represented not by the possession of objects or mere appearances, but by one's lifestyle and attitude. We were all so easily fooled. It is obvious that Walker believes that a person's heritage should be a living, dynamic part of the culture from which it arose and not a frozen timepiece only to be observed from a distance. This book is crap on its own.
Her life quickly spins out of control. Except it's true what they say; once you pop, you can't stop. Remember I told you I had a date with Bill? I am wondering how, when our diarist heroine was in the gutter and writing her diary entries on paper bags and such, she managed to maintain the clarity of mind to actually stow away these inconvenient pages to get them pasted back into the diary. Go Ask Alice is a wake-up call to loved ones of children, teens and adults alike. He consoles her, and gets her permission to study at the university library. And boy does it make acid trips sound like fun! This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Earrings, too, gold and hanging down from her shoulders.
I'm afraid to live and afraid to die, just like the old Negro spiritual. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. He was a sociologist,writer and educator; he was a controversial leader of the negro thought. This story exemplifies the painful but honest truth in what can happen in families today. She feels ashamed of herself again, and swears off of drugs. It does not offer any solutions. I suppose that is the nature of a diary.
My full review of the anonymous Go Ask Alice is also available. This story is an honest account of a young person finding themselves accidentally in the world of addiction. Recovery programs tell patients that addiction is a disease and treatable with proper medication and therapy. I couldn't stand the narrator, I felt no connection with her and despised most of her views. Never had anything ever been so beautiful.
She refuses and thats when they start to terrorize her. It's exciting and colorful and dangerous, but it isn't worth it! After she was successfully able to stop, she was still around those who she used to do drugs with, and the pressure from them to continue made it more difficult for her. It can be on how their day was, or just how they felt throughout the day. Mentally, she behaves respectfully while talking with this character with familiar warmth and friendliness through the time they know of each other. The girls kick their drug lifestyle. Dear Diary, I feel awfully bitched and pissed off at everybody. Alice finds out she is being sent to an insane asylum.
