I’ve had to replace my copies of Go Ask Alice multiple times because copies of have gone “missing” or they’ve fallen apart. They’re that popular in my classroom. I’m really looking forward to reading Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose because it’s fresh and actually a real account from a real teen. It released from Sourcebooks Fire on April 1st and they’ve created a wonderful website dedicated to the book.
Summary (From Goodreads):
Go Ask Alice was a hoax. But Dear Nobody is a true teen diary so raw and so edgy its authenticity rings off every page
“I am a freak.”
The words and drawings of Mary Rose present a gritty, powerful, no-holds-barred true experience of a teen girl so desperate to be loved, so eager to fit in that she’ll go to extremes that could cost her her life.
This is not a story about addiction. Or sexual promiscuity. Or cystic fibrosis. It’s the story of a young woman with a powerful will to live, who more than anything wants to be heard…and loved.
This compelling, emotional account ensures her voice will not be forgotten.
