The book is about a girl growing up in the late 1960s, struggling through her first year of high school in a brand new city. On a short trip back to her old town, she tries LSD for the first time at a party. After she’s introduced to her new world of drugs and parties, this new life follows her when she returns home. Months pass and as her life is spiraling out of control, the reader takes an adventure through the life of a typical sixties teen.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a story with an interesting plot, and a creative writing style. This book is impossible to put down and I couldn’t help myself from finishing it in one sitting. The reader never learns the character’s name, which adds a lot of mystery to the plot and makes it even more interesting. Of all the books in the “Anonymous” series (including Jay’s Journal, Lucy in the Sky, and Letting Ana Go), I believe that Go Ask Alice is the most well written and most interesting of the four.
