If you haven’t read it and wish to, I may not suggest to read this for it may have some major spoiler alerts.
My sister gave me 3 books that were inspired by this book and she let me borrow her copy of it. She was gonna buy it for me but it was sold out.
It is a real girls diary from the 60’s. She was fairly smart, I picture her beautiful and talented. Sadly she got involved in drugs and because of it had some crazy stories, at least of what she remembers. Towards the end she was getting clean, I was so proud of her I wanted to write her a letter to say congratulations, then one day she was babysitting. (She babysat everyday after school at the same home.) She saw some chocolate and thought the mom made it for her so she ate some, apparently some of her old “friends” were trying to brake her and get her back into the habit or she would die from OD. Luckily she didn’t eat it all. Everything she worked hard on is gone and she had to restart. The last entry was so positive, like how she was gonna finish high school, go to college, help troubled kids…become somebody important. It was so beautiful you couldn’t help but smile while reading it. I turned the page, it was a note from her mother stating that two weeks after this she was found dead in the living room OD.
I cried as my heart broke.
My sister thinks her old friends finally killed her, as for me I’m not sure if it was a simple relapse and things went bad or not.
If you’ve read it, let me know what you think.
