Recommended for: EVERYONE

This book is something every kid should read before high school. The main character is slipped LSD and hooked on drugs. As she becomes an addict, her diary explains her deepest fears and thoughts. The truth in stories can be scary.

Shelby anissa your reading this book?


Annalyn I read this book at the beganing of sixth grade and it was tuching.


Tracy Elizabeth I read this book while I was in JRHS and I loved every moment of it, it has REAL characters regardless of the fiction behind it. I loved every part of it.


Tiffany why should every kid read this before high school? So they can be brainwashed into thinking all drugs are gateway drugs and that if you do them you will become a drug addict? Thats like telling them if they have sex they will get pregnant or get someone pregnant instead of just teaching them how to be smart about it. You don't have to totally be into something but you don't have to be totally against it when there are proper ways of teaching kids good and bad. Not all drugs are terrible, however some are when used in certain ways...

Nervana Tiffany, with all due respect, how do you want to teach children to use drugs but be smart about it. This is exactly what you're implying. The only drugs that aren't dangerous are those used in medicine other than that, how can a child or teenager or even an adult use drugs that supposedly kill you and be smart about it?


Annalyn Drugs in medication ARE dangerous… Substance abuse applies to prescription meds, and in some cases, its those medications that are causing the problems. Especially in high school where xanax and ADHA medication is closer to deadly candy..
