Go Ask Alice

Diarist's name

The diarist's name is never revealed in the book. A girl named Alice is mentioned briefly in one entry during the diarist's stay in Coos Bay, Oregon; she is an addict whom the diarist briefly meets on the street. Commentators often refer to the diarist as "Alice" in error, or for convenience. In the ABC Movie of the Week film version of Go Ask Alice, broadcast 24 January 1973, the protagonist played by Jamie Smith-Jackson is named Alice.
