It Happened to Nancy: By an Anonymous Teenager, A True Story from Her Diary by Beatrice SparksThis is the diary of Nancy, a teenager who was raped by a 24-year-old and got the HIV virus, which soon morphed into AIDS.
Its depressing (no duh) to see a 16-year-old suffer from rectal ulcers and stuff. I guess thats the reality of AIDS.
Personally, Im a little doubtful of thinking that this is an actual diary. The Editor is Dr. Beatrice Sparks, who also edited Go Ask Alice, which Ive read. I also read excerpts from some other book of hers. Point is, every diary author has the same fucking voice. Its some happy-go-lucky or cheerful chick who has something horrible happen to her, but is all like oh I will prevail, I will not be miserable, blah blah blah. And/or they become terribly confused and act stupid.
And Nancy, if shes real, has very annoying entries. I know the girl has AIDS and everything, and I should feel sorry for her, but damn. Several times I wanted to smack this girl.
