lethe | 14139 comments As far as I'm aware, none of the Go Ask Alice editions credit Beatrice Sparks as the author, at least on the cover.

I assume her name was added to the records to make people aware that this is a fake diary (that was how I found out).

She is listed as the author of Go Ask Alice on another title of hers:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... (Portuguese translation of Voices)

On another title, she is credited as the editor of Go Ask Alice: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6911 comments It was a general note because I didn't read the entire thread. :-(

I changed the author for the 2 editions and combined with the main work. (still processing) now complete

If there is something else, Corinne, please post and I'll try to actually read your request. ;-)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6911 comments Combine is now complete (edited comment above). I also looked at the already combined editions and changed those I saw from Anonymous to Beatrice Sparks.
