The novel Go Ask Alice, written by an anonymous teenage girl, consists of her thoughts, musings, and feelings throughout her ever worsening battle with drugs. Before the life-altering party that introduced her to this life of addiction, Alice was a typical teenage girl who faced the fears and unknown of moving to a new town and school, feelings of nonacceptance from her friends and peers, body issues, and pressure from her parents. The argument can be made that one of the many roots of Alice’s worsening habit is mainly her relationship with her mother and father; however, once Alice has left her family in search of her next high and life on her own, she began to long for them once again. Although she ran away from her life and family twice, each time Alice was accepted home with loving, caring arms.

However, no matter the amount of effort Alice or her family put forth into her recovery, the drugs ultimately won the battle for Alice’s life.
