Alice could be anyone - she could be someone you know, or someone you love - and Alice is in trouble...

Being fifteen is hard, but Alice seems fine. She babysits the neighbour's kids. She is doing well at school. Someday she'd even like to get married and raise a family of her own. Then she is invited to a party, a special party where the drinks are spiked with LSD, and Alice is never the same again.

A great story and especially a sad book. A young healthy girl starts using drugs and because it's written in a dairy format, you have actually no idea what is going to happen. At least i didn't expect that she will die, buy she did.
