Being a teenager is difficult no matter what species you may be. Our adolescent years are filled with bizarre rites of passage that include alcohol-induced cruelty on the lesser members of the animal kingdom. Sometimes the guilt from these acts remains tucked away in our psyche long into our adult years.

Different, that's for sure. The style is remniscient of Chuck Palahniuk, as well as the content. Not everyone will "get it", but I think that's what you were going for.

I get it. The characters seem to be a cross between frat boys and... well, I won't give it away. I think the beginning could have more foreshadowing of the end. It was too short for the reader really empathize with the character at all and in the end, I just ended up not liking them. I'm sure that was the point but I wished I could have found a redeeming trait in the MC. Unfortunately, since this is his "first time," that implies more. Any secondary act negates any guilt he felt about the first. Overall well written and interesting if a bit vulgar.
