Go Ask Alice (1971) is a cautionary tale about the life of a troubled teenage girl, written by Beatrice Sparks in the form of the diary of an anonymous teenage girl who became addicted to drugs.
Sparks is listed as the author of the book by the U.S. Copyright Office.
The novel's title was taken from a line in the Grace Slick—penned Jefferson Airplane song "White Rabbit" ("go ask Alice/when she's ten feet tall"), which is itself a reference to a scene in Lewis Carroll's book Alice's Adventures In Wonderland where Alice eats a cookie that makes her grow large. Go Ask Alice is presented as an anti-drug testimonial. The diarist's name is never given in the book.
The story caused a sensation when published, and remains in print as of 2012.
