Originally published in 1971, this book has sold millions of copies. Most editions say on the front cover "A real diary."

From the back of my copy:
"You can't ask Alice anything anymore. But you can do something -- read her diary. Strong, painfully honest, nakedly candid. The actual story of a desperate girl on drugs and on the run who almost made it.
'An extraordinary work... A document of horrifying reality.' The New York Times"

Actually, it's a fake, written by Beatrice Sparks. Read more at Snopes.

Trivia: In the 1973 made-for-TV version, William Shatner starred as the doomed girl's father.

I've read this book more than 3 times. The last time being more than 6 years ago, but I still remember it as being one of the most eye-opening, honest books I've had the pelasure of reading. A true/real journal of a teenager growing up and experimenting with many things... amazing.
