Young Adult • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1971

This "classic" about a girl's struggle with drug addiction is still being read widely by young adults. Written in diary form, it covers a year in the life of a 15-year-old as she's first introduced to drugs and then as she tries and fails repeatedly to shake the habit. Moore does an excellent job with the difficult task of narrating the diary entries, which are repetitious and noticably lacking in action. Nevertheless, Moore reads with great emotion and is convincing as a teenaged girl. As she reads each entry, the listener knows from the outset, just from the tone of her voice, whether the main character is on or off drugs. Unfortunately, even her impeccable performance isn't enough to keep this from becoming tedious. This audiobook would have been much more successful in abridged form.
