Did You Know?
The Book, Go Ask Alice, which this movie is based on, was not a true story at all. The book is purported to be "A True Story" and "A Real Diary" of a 15-year old girl who becomes an accidental drug addict and then slips seamlessly into the 1970's drug scene, before dying much too young of an overdose, either accidentally or on purpose (no one really knows). The problem with this? The book was not a true story and was not a real diary, but rather a cautionary tail whipped up by the establishment to drive fear into the minds of naive teenagers. Think "After School Special" of the 1970's. The book is debunked on Snopes at snopes.com/language/literary/askalice See more
