Go Ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks

Summary: This groundbreaking classic is more compelling than ever for today's readers. A sensation when it was first published and a perennial bestseller ever since, this real-life diary charts an anonymous teenage girl's struggle with the seductive--and often fatal--world of drugs.

My Take:  Such a sad story! I can only imagine how her parents must have felt after reading her diary. I am sure they had a hard time forgiving themselves from not saving their daughter from that horrible world she lived in. I would recommend this to a teen so they would know what life could be like in the drug world.

There is a debate whether this book is true or not.  Even if it was not a true story; these events could truly happen and it is best that teens are aware before they head down that road.
