Bombed Buzzed Smashed or Sober
A Book About Alcohol
I could tell immediately from the font of the word “Bombed” that I had myself a lovely book from the 1970s. Almost every poster I had as a teen used that font. This is one of those teen nonfiction books used to write research papers. It’s okay. There are no pictures or anything interesting to break up the text. Newer books at least have a drunk teen on the cover.
This book from 1976 was probably fine for a teen nonfiction collection when I was in high school. It’s basically a few simple narratives along with basic facts and figures. Nothing really awful, but outdated. You know, because I was in high school in 1976. Good rule of thumb: books in teen nonfiction should not be older than the people reading them.
