I've read Jay's Journal, which is sort of like the companion to GAA, but not GAA itself. I want to though.

You know, there's actually a lot of controversy about that.... some people say she fabricated most of it.

Yeah, I actually looked into that. Apparently the brother of "Jay" wrote a book about how his family's life was ruined because of her book, and that only 25 of like 227 journal entries were used, and the rest were fabricated.
