Helpful Score: 1
It was alright, but it was often not believeable or realistic. The main character sounded more like a ten year old rather than a fourteen year old girl, and her immaturity was a little annoying. It's a short book though, so it isn't so bad. It's a decent, quick read.
I'm gonna be honest with y'all, this book isn't really written by a teenage girl and it shows. It's fairly interesting though, and reading the author's desperate attempt to sound like a modern American teenager (she's probably a childfree elderly French woman who's never even been to America)is really funny. And the obvious moral messages and 'warnings' they don't even attempt to hide only add to the comedy.
I read this book in four hours because I couldn't go to sleep. It was pretty good. Definately an eye opener for our youth in middle/high school. If they think they are receiving special attention and it is harmless this is a book for them!

This is a very heartbreaking book about a teenager in the depths of depression. Her parents are tring to make their marriage work and when she feels all alone in the world she meets a teacher who is a predator for young girls. This is a must read for parents with teenage daughters. There are dangers where we all believe our children are safe. It This diary will make you laugh and cry.
This was awful. I read Go Ask Alice as a kid and I even bought it again a few years ago and plan on rereading it and possibly keeping for my daughter but this was just trash. Pure trash. No kid talks, thinks, or writes like this. I always heard the rumors about the so called "diaries" she found and about people not believing that they are what she says. People that think she in fact wrote the books herself while claiming to have "found" diaries.
I did think it was wierd that she was just happening to "find" diaries that so convienantly fell into the different catergories. The teenage pregnancy, the drug use, the teacher who sexed up the student, etc. But hey, weirder things have happened right? I like to believe in anyone until I have a reason not to and I never had a reason when it came to Sparks...until now.
This was so obviously written by an older person trying to act like a younger person. It was screaming out throughout the entire book. She tried to act naive, she tried to use big words and then act like she didn't know the meaning, she tried to use the slang, everything. And she failed at everything she did in the book.
This wouldn't have worked in the 50's and it's not working now. It's useless and a waste of paper. If you're thinking about trying to find a book for a reluctant reader or your child just keep it moving...this is not it. You might make your kid never trust your taste in reading again.
