Booktalk #1

A diary of a descent girl who did not learn to say "no". She ends up addicted to drugs and living on the street. She tries several times to keep away from drugs. This sad tales shows us what life can be like when addiction takes over.

Booktalk #2

An innocent girl goes to a small party, but little did she know that the party would change her life forever. She goes by the name "Alice". Someone slipped LSD into her drink without her knowledge. She loved how the drug made her feel, and was ecstatic to explore all of the different drugs out there.  Every party she went to, Alice remembered in bits and pieces, but mostly only remembered the beautiful colors that the drugs gave her, and sometimes her sexual experiences that occurred when she was in a complete drug haze. Her attempt at sobriety was working until she was tricked again, and brought back into the whirlwind of drugs.  Within months, she was hooked. "January 24th, After you've had it, there isn't even life without drugs…". If you like the excitement of a drama-filled adventure read Go Ask Alice. (Julie F.,  student)
