Sex has always come without consequences for seventeen-year-old Evan. Until he hooks up with the wrong girl and finds himself in the wrong place at very much the wrong time. After an assault that leaves Evan scarred inside and out, he and his father retreat to the family cabin in rural Minnesota— which, ironically, turns out to be the one place where Evan can't escape other people. Including himself. It may also offer him his best shot at making sense of his life again.

Carrie Mesrobian grew up in Minnesota, where she teaches creative writing at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. Born in 1974, she is half Armenian and half Norwegian and is a former high school Spanish instructor. She lives with her husband and daughter and dog in a suburb of Minneapolis and does not have any notable hobbies or super exciting interests, really. She likes coconut popsicles, Norman Reedus, books, thrift stores, crocheting, and country music. See? That's hardly riveting information! She's much more entertaining in other venues, however.Review:
As the title suggests, debut author Mesrobian takes aim at big topics, but what she's most interested in is the aftermath...By focusing on Evan, Mesrobian talks about hookup culture in a way that is character-based, not agenda-driven, and showcases a teenager who grows and changes without becoming unrecognizable. --Publishers Weekly
This is one hell of an impressive debut, filled with a pervasive undercurrent of fear, tension, and uncertainty you get from staring down into the deepest, darkest, coldest lake. Sex & Violence deserves shelf space alongside the classics of adolescent-themed fiction. Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle A knockout blow of a debut. Powerful, funny, brutal, and true. Gayle Forman, New York Times Bestselling author of If I Stay A powerful book with lots of real strengths - notably the characters, who are well-rounded and interesting, and Evan's excellent narrative voice... a really strong debut. --The Bookbag
Sex and Violence is never what it seems. It never goes where you expect it will. It is funny, scary, brutal, and tender. It is an honest meditation on masculinity. And it's all delivered through the eyes of a damaged genius of a boy, Evan Carter, who you hope so hard will be okay. --Geoff Herbach, author of Stupid Fast
