Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1971.
Advance reading copy, preceding the first edition. 159 pp. Yellow wraps lettered in red with ARC info label pasted on front cover. Very Good+ with a bit of light staining to front label and back wrapper, otherwise not in bad shape. Rare in advance format. If you grew up in America in the '70s or '80s you may very well have read this book about the dangers of drugs, ostensibly a diary of an actual teenager but almost certainly fictional and probably written by its editor, Beatrice Sparks. Or maybe you saw the 1973 made-for-TV movie based on it co-starring Star Trek's William Shatner. Go Ask Alice was a stark counterpoint to the freewheeling ethos of the early '70s that was ahead of its time, eventually fitting in perfectly with the war on drugs and D.A.R.E. program.
