Review: Jay's Journal - Anonymous (Edited by Dr. Beatrice Sparks)
Published: August 2010
Read: September 2012
Rating: 2/5 Stars
I feel kinda felt guilty giving this book such a low rating because of the situation but then I got over it because I will blame it on the editor, Dr. Beatrice Sparks. I guess I had high hopes for her since she edited Go Ask Alice, which was in fact good read considering....
the book is in the 70's so I really could relate and he was Mormon in which again I could not relate. BUT I did feel like I understood the pressures of society and family and so on. I did enjoy the fact that we was in part a genius and that gave me comfort because geniuses and artist totally see the world in a different way and it gave a little insight to that. It also says "stay away from drugs"! I really can't say much on the book except that I think it would have been better if the edits were left out and if I could read the real book and see the handwriting to give it more of a homely and personal feel.
