Description

"A rare, no-holds-barred documentation of an American teenager's life." —Publishers Weekly

Told through the actual diary entries of a real teenage girl, Dear Nobody chronicles Mary Rose's struggles with drug addiction, bullying, and a deadly secret in this raw, authentic book. Her story will inspire you—and remind you that you're not alone.

They call me a freak.

I'm sick of it. It makes me want dangerous, bad things. Drugs—hard drugs—and people who are bad for me, but I don't care, because I'm so lonely and no matter what their intentions are at least they're talking to me…

They say that high school is supposed to be the best time of your life. But what if that's just not true?

More than anything, Mary Rose wants to fit in. To be heard. To be loved. And she'll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Even if it costs her her life.

Compelling and unflinchingly honest, Dear Nobody is perfect for readers looking for:

•contemporary young adult nonfiction
•true stories about drug addiction
•books like Go Ask Alice and Lucy in the Sky
•stories that spark conversation about issues teens face

    This book was not only extremely relatable, but it was also one of the best books I've ever read. Once I started reading I just couldn't put it down! I highly recommend it. It was such a great book! Mary Roses story is so well told that you feel like you're really there with her throughout all her trials and tribulations of being a teen. Such an awesome book!
