Getting Out of Bed by Vanessa Telaro

Here's a read from Hack Writers that kept me sucked in the entire time.

If stories about the slippery slope of substance abuse and the difficulties of coping with life tickle your fancy, than give this one a go. Telaro does a fantastic job at highlighting the emotional turmoil that the mundane can deliver, especially when one is in a state of trying to find out where the puzzle pieces will fit after changing forever.

It's written in a very simple manner with excellent dialog. Good conflict and never over the top. Getting Out of Bed tells the tale of a day in the life of a once misguided youth trying to get by in early adulthood. The glamor days are gone, came and went, crashed and burned. All that is left are the still smoldering ashes of someone older trying to get by.
