Lucy In The Sky by Anonymous was written in the tradition of Go Ask Alice, and I found it to be as riveting as Go Ask Alice. This book presented the drug and alcohol-filled journey of a troubled 16-year-old girl. Before the world of addiction overcame her life, the character was a joyous teenager who was close with her older brother and parents. Only when she fell into a new group of friends at a party did she make the wrong decision which was to smoke a blunt. Ever since then, things went downhill, and the character tried a new drug every week, inhibiting a false emotion of euphoria. Nothing was ever the same. I found so many meanings and lessons in this book and I truly connected with the character. Throughout the book, I sided and opposed with the protagonist and went with her on her dark journey. I would give this book a 4.5/5 stars, and recommend this book to readers 13 and older. @Ilovefood of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This diary brought tears that's for sure. So real, because it was.

This book reminded me constantly of an Ellen Hopkins read. The slow downward spiral of this teenage girl in her real life diary just makes this book even more raw and devastating. It is a book everyone should read to learn from.

This was a very good book, I absolutely loved it! If you have read the story "Go Ask Alice" and liked the story line, you will definately like "Lucy in the Sky"

I is a great read! It really shows how easily addiction starts and how it is hard to stop it. It shows how each drug affected the character. She had marijuana, hash, ecstacy, crystal meth, heroin, and alchohal. It shows how strong peer pressure is (like what Euclid13 wrote)

GOOD BOOK. parents might want to read this as well to remember how strong peer pressure can be. You might also read, "Go Ask Alice", which is along the same lines.
