Alice is 15 years old and appears a perfectly normal teenager; she diets, goes out with boys, and gets good marks at school. Without her parents being properly aware, she tries drugs and falls into addiction. The difference between Alice and a lot of other kids on drugs is that Alice keeps a diary.
Alice is fifteen, white, middle-class. She diets. She dates. She gets decent grades. She thinks someday she'd like to get married and raise a family. On July 9, Alice is turned on to acid. She digs it. Acid makes the world a better place. It opens up the world of sex. It makes Alice feel free. Sometimes Alice worries about taking drugs, but she figures life is more bearable with them than without. Alice's parents don't know what's happening. They notice changes. They think Alice might be 'associating with the wrong people'. They have no idea she's on drugs. They cannot help her. The difference betweeen Alice and a lot of other kids on drugs is that Alice kept a diary ...This is her unsettling true life account of her journey.
