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 Utterly gripping Kirkus Reviews A great story, a brilliant debut and a read I highly recommend! Once Upon a Bookcase This is an amazing story, one that all older teens will benefit from reading VOYA 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 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 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Flawless! 1. Oktober 2013
Von Jonetta (Ejaygirl) - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Sex has always come without consequence for seventeen-year-old Evan. It was easy for him, even. That is, until he hooks up 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. Yet it may also offer him his best shot at making sense of his life again.

I'm not usually a fan of YA written in a male's POV. Not so with this book. It made me rethink my semi-strict rule of staying away from "boy" fiction. Mesrobian flawlessly enters the mind of 17-year old Evan and lets his story flow seamlessly through the pages. It's gritty, unapologetic, and most importantly, believable.

Evan undergoes a major transformation in this story. He starts off as a care-free, cocky kid with no plans for the future. Then his whole world is rocked and he, along with his mostly absent dad, is left to pick up the pieces. This is when a new Evan is introduced. He's vulnerable, and not so sure about life anymore. He struggles to do everyday things, like showering, and doesn't know his place anymore. But with the help of a therapist, a motley crew of friends, an island, and handwritten letters, Evan begins to figure things out again. Even if he doesn't have all the answers, life goes on and he'll move on with it.

I'm a character-driven reader, so as long as I can connect to the characters, the story is golden (for the most part). Yet, had I not connected to Evan, this story was so well-written, I could have forgiven the lack of connection. From start to finish, I was sucked in and couldn't turn away. Months later and I'm still thinking about these characters and their stories. Their stories were complex yet realistic. The content in this book tended to lean to the heavy, no light-hearted reading here, and luckily it still managed to stay away from the angsty teen drama found in so much YA. My only complaint is that I'd liked to have seen what became of Collette and Evan's letters. I'm okay with open-ended endings, but I became so invested in this book, that I wanted just a bit more.

You are instantly drawn to Evan and his story. The story is hard to get through at times, but Evan tells it so matter-of-factly, so unfalteringly, that it's easy to stay with him. He's not the frequently found hero, Evan is flawed. He's flawed and knows it. Yet, his charm, wit, and self-deprecating humor pulls you in. He might not be perfect, but he's honest, deceivingly caring, and not afraid of taking chances. The other characters are introduced in different depths, but all well done and fleshed out. Most of the book I wanted to shake his dad, hug his therapist, and nudge a friend or two. And even when Evan doesn't behave in exactly the way you'd want him to, you root for him. You root for the mismatched relationships he's forged. And you root for his survival.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Authentic 5. September 2013
Von Jessica Bell - Veröffentlicht auf
I find it fascinating when a female author chooses to write a book from the perspective of a male. That's why I decided to give this book a go despite not being a big reader of YA/NA. It takes a tremendous amount of talent for an adult female to put themselves in the mindset of a teen male, and Carrie Mesrobian did not disappoint.

This highly personal account of Evan Carter held me captivated till the very end. I found Evan's internal dialogue especially authentic. Just how I would imagine a young man to think and feel.

Carrie is an author to watch, for sure. I look forward to reading more of her work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Important book that is amazing frank about sex. 7. Januar 2014
Von K. Sue - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow I can't believe there are only 8 reviews of this book. Read it. Here's why.

Pretty impressive debut novel. It's about a teenage boy who hooks up with girls without engaging any emotions, because he has moved around non-stop since his mother died 4 or 5 years before the book begins. Until some super jealous classmates nearly beat him to death. Then he needs to rebuild himself into a person he can be comfortable with and face a lot of ugly sides of himself.

First of all, it's refreshing to read a book from a male perspective, even though it's written by a woman. Evan is one of the most honest, warts and all, characters I've read. This book isn't for everyone: it can be rude and crude at times, though from my perspective as a mother of teenage boys and a former high school teacher, that is what a teenage boy is. But it's impressive that you can see the kernel of the good person Evan strives to be. The story is ultimately hopeful, because despite the crap he's put people through and that he's been through, Evan manages to pull the pieces mostly together. The ending is open and though I'd like to know more about Evan and Jordan, I hope the author doesn't cave to publishing pressure and write a sequel.

This book is also refreshingly frank about sex. It doesn't sugar coat but it's not graphic or romanticized. There is a paragraph about hooking up and how Evan felt doing it, that made me sit down, because it was so well put. About how a condom was his "latex disguise", allowing him to feel responsible, not slutty and that he was taking care of things. It's such a condemnation of hook up culture and how it ultimately demeans but without knocking you on the head about it. Evan does slowly learn to value a person and fall in love and postpone physical pleasure.

The one criticism I have is that the psychological therapy speak is pretty obvious. Parts of the book occasionally feel like someone took some increasingly advanced psychology courses and poured what they learned into the book.

I think this is an important book to be shared with older teens to open a discussion. Many of the themes are themes that should be discussed: what's your motivation, what are you looking for in your relationships, what is hook up culture and how does it affect teens or people in general, how do you deal with fear. That being said, if you object to rough language and some crudeness, this isn't for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Real Thing 9. Oktober 2013
Von Beth A. Bauman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A believable, gritty story about a boy trying to put his life back together after being viciously attacked. I especially like the Minnesota lake-side setting and the quirky cast of characters and events that lead Evan to his eventual healing. Well told story with dynamic characters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spot-on *real* 29. Oktober 2013
Von Melanie Cannon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
There are so many things to love about this book: the authentic ring of the narrator's voice, the realistic portrayal of the interaction between the characters, and the author's commitment to creating a narrator who is both flawed and likable, stuck and growing. (You know, like actual people.)

But what I really want to talk about is how solidly Evan's story nails the process of recovering from trauma. There is no magic wand. He doesn't wake up one day "fixed." His recovery process is just like what happens in life. It moves in fits and starts. There are steps forward and stumbles backward. He achieves bits of growth then promptly acts like he hasn't learned a thing.

It also happens in relationship with other people, the other rich and real characters that inhabit Evan's world.

I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys vivid storytelling about complex characters.
