Great book, but drinking and smoking are a theme

Early in the book, Amy shows up to school with piercings, which are not allowed. After being given a warning, she lights a cigarette in the gym. She is sent off campus. She also mentions clubbing and returning home completely drunk. In one scene she wakes up hungover. The book is exciting and great, but has a considerable amount of drinking and smoking. One thing that makes this better is that it does not necessarily make drinking look glorious or cool. There is also some language.
