INEBRIATED | by Katey Taylor #YA #Contemporary #BookReview #Giveaway #XpressoTours

Katey Taylor
Publication date: February 26th, 2019
Genres: YA Contemporary
Barely seventeen and as pretty as can be: the summer is their playground. Cait and her best friends Steph and Allie take on San Francisco’s party scene with fake IDs and short dresses.
When Cait meets Adrien Cross, the charismatic lead singer of her favorite indie band, she’s introduced to a hedonistic world of liquor and lust that she never wants to leave. But then that world spirals out of control and the harsh realities of reckless living take a toll on Cait and the ones she loves. What will be left when the makeup masks wash off, the bottles are empty, and Cait begins to lose her grip on everything?
Katey Taylor’s heart-wrenching debut novel will have you strapped into the intense rollercoaster ride of Cait’s life and one chaotic summer that will change it all.

My Book Review
This is a beautifully written, poignant story with some truly heart-wrenching moments. What a wonderful debut novel. Katey, well done you!

I was invested from the very beginning of the book. You immediately get an inkling that someone is going to get hurt, what with all the partying and drinking Cait and her friends do.

Inebriated is an intense read filled with stereotypical teenagers who sneak out at night, lie to their parents and party to some serious extremes. This is a great young adult novel that shows the realities of partying and drinking and all of the unfortunate repercussions often come with it.  Many readers will enjoy this story, especially if you like books that are truly pragmatic. Personally, I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to many books by Katey in the future.
