  • Question:-Evaluate how effectively the writer of the diary "Go Ask Alice" has communicated the theme to the reader?
    Evaluate how effectively the writer of the diary "Go Ask Alice" has communicated the theme to the reader?

    Answer:-The theme being how drugs adversely affect one's life, no?

    I think the author portrays the life of his protagonist very well. You really believe this is an actual diary. It shows you how drugs are introducted into a girl's life and how they ruin so much potential. Just when you think that she is free from its clutches, you are told that she is not. This shows the long lasting harmful effects that drugs can have on someone's life.

    It is very well communicated through the account of a bright young girl.
  • Question:-What drugs are mentioned in Go Ask Alice?
    In Go Ask Alice, I know there are a number of different drugs used such as pot, LSD, Speed and more. I was wondering if there was a list of all of the drugs mentioned in the book (not just those used by Alice) or any that you can just remember. Thank you!!!

    Answer:-All the drugs:

    LSD, marijuana, amphetamines, speed, pot, nicotine, ecstasy, PCP (Angel Dust), heroin, cannabis and of course alcohol.
  • Question:-Books like Go Ask Alice and The Lovely Bones?
    I love Go Ask Alice and The Lovely Bones. Are there any other books like those? I like sad books about teen drug addiction and stuff like that. (Yeah, I know it's weird lol) Preferably books told in first person or in a diary form?

    Answer:-Impulse, Crank, Identical or Burned all by Ellen Hopkins. She's amazing. She writes in prose and her books deal with teens coping with things like depression, suicidal feelings and drug addiction.

    Beatrice Sparks has some really good books too. They're told in diary form, similar to Go Ask Alice. Treacherous Love, Annie's Baby, Jay's Journal were all intriguing. I'd also recommend Cut by Patricia McCormick, I was really impressed with that one.
  • Question:-What are some good books if you like Go Ask Alice, The Hunger Games, The Outsiders?
    I also really like The Forest of Hands and Teeth. it's about these people who live in a little village surrounded by a forest filled with rabid/zombie like people. The people in the village think there is no one left alive in the world but them.
    I loved The Host by Stephenie Meyer.
    I like books like Go Ask Alice and The Lovely Bones.

    Answer:-"Crank" is a good book. I believe maybe its related to "Go ask Alice" or written by the same author.

    First time teaching Go Ask Alice Anonymous. I am looking for creative ideas to make lesson plans. Please let me know if you have taught it. The book touches upon important things, I want to make sure that my students understand it fully
