"Un testimonio sobre el mundo de las drogas entre los adolescentes. Para los que leen este libro resultan perturbadoras la facilidad con la que se puede entrar en él y la soledad que se encuentra aquel joven que, en su desesperada búsqueda de aceptación, cae una y otra vez en ese seductor abismo. Publicado por primera vez en 1971, este diario relata parte de la vida de Alicia, una joven como cualquiera que, a sus 15 años, se ha iniciado en el consumo de drogas en una fiesta. Este diario será para ella un refugio cuando todo parezca perdido, pues en no más de dos años vemos cómo se levanta y vuelve a caer en la drogadicción, presa de las presiones de otros chicos drogadictos y de la incapacidad de comunicarse con su familia. Un libro que no sólo es recomendable para los adolescentes, sino también para los padres, y cuya lectura, más que ofrecer una respuesta, dejará en nuestro interior muchas preguntas que resolver"--Container
