Kallie Grahm, Resident Scholar
|"A fairly normal girl, who is given the name "Alice", gets wrapped up in the world of drugs and revolves in a downward spiral. She is accidentally introduced to drugs when LSD is put in her drink at a party. She traveled away from home with a "friend" who also did drugs. They traveled from place to place, never staying in one place for too long. Alice tells of her life as a druggie, including her new sexual experiences and new drug trips. She eventually tries to get better, and goes to an institution, but does not succeed."
Log-han, Resident Scholar
