In "Go Ask Alice", Who is Alice?

There's just a quick reference about a girl named Alice in the book. I figure that if they picked her name for the title, she must have some importance, right? So how is she important?

    Hi Sarah,

    Alice is a reference to Alice in Wonderland. "Go Ask Alice" are lyrics from a song called "White Rabbit," which is about drugs since Alice in Wonderland is often joked about drug use and hallucination, and the girl in the book does drugs.

    "Go Ask Alice is a controversial 1971 book about the life of a troubled teenage girl."

    "Alice is not the protagonist's name and the diarist's name is never given in the book. A girl named Alice is mentioned briefly in one entry during the diarist's stay in Coos Bay, Oregon. The girl is an addict whom the diarist briefly meets on the street.

    However some commentators refer to the diarist as "Alice" in error, or for the sake of convenience.

    In the ABC Movie of the Week filmation of Go Ask Alice—broadcast 24 January 1973—the protagonist is herself named Alice."

    Alice represents drugs like in the old 70's song.
