Details: Product Description Alice is fifteen, white, middle-class. She diets. She dates. She gets decent grades. She thinks someday she'd like to get married and raise a family. On July 9, Alice is turned on to acid. She digs it. Acid makes the world a better place. It opens up the world of sex. It makes Alice feel free. Sometimes Alice worries about taking drugs, but she figures life is more bearable with them than without. Alice's parents don't know what's happening. They notice changes. They think Alice might be 'associating with the wrong people'. They have no idea she's on drugs. They cannot help her. The difference betweeen Alice and a lot of other kids on drugs is that Alice kept a diary . . . This is her unsettling true life account of her journey. Review "An extraordinary work- a document of horrifying reality" ( New York Times Book Review) "A book that all teenagers and parents of teenagers should really read." ( Boston Globe) "It shows the awful pressures which plague even the 15-year-old who needs all her energies to cope with growing; the isolation of one who wanders off the track and, alone, finds it impossible to fight her way back."
