Jays Journal by Anonymous

Jay's Journal by Anonymous
Paperback, 240 pages

August 2010

Things are going from worse to impossible. I'm fighting a lossing battle.....

Jay though he could handle anything. The first time he took drugs was for fun. But what started as an escape quickly spiraled into a haze of addiction. That was just the beginning of the dangerous path that ultimately led Jay to take his own life.

This is the journal he left behind.

This book wasn't as great for me as Go Ask Alice was. It took longer for me to get into it. It also so much similar to Go Ask Alice it drove me nuts. It was still a good book but hard to read after Go Ask Alice. I found myself comparing the two. Which was not a good idea. These are suppose to be based off journal's/diaries but I have a feeling they were not. They're writing styles were the same. If they were really people's journal's/diaries they would have been written different. I think that is why is it was harder to get into because it was written the same as Go Ask Alice.

It is still a good book. I just wish it was written differently. After all men and women are not the same. So why did Alice and Jay write the same way?


  1. I've been curious about this, but I've heard a lot of bad reviews. I heard they're not really journals too :(

  2. it would really be a shame if they were not based off of real journals. that is what makes part of it so SCARY, that this is not stuff that happened in a horror movie, but to real people

  3. I'm currently writing about my life. You might enjoy reading my blogs. I've only just started them and i'm planning on publishing them next year. I'm not the best writer but my stories are factual and they are related to all the things you enjoy reading about in your blog.

  5. sorry i stumbled across your blog, just thought you might be interested in seeing a real life up situation rather then a fictional book.
