Here is an excerpt from my book review of Sex & Violence;
Sex & Violence is an excellent novel for the mature teen. It is gripping, honest, raw and a bit shocking. Evan is a swearing, beer drinking, weed smoking, girl using, character you hate to love, he is multi-faceted and trying to become a better person. Mesrobian has captured the male teenage voice perfectly. Sex & Violence is a great first novel and Mesrobian is a writer I want to read more of. Love it or hate it, Sex & Violence is a part of the culture teens grow up in the U.S. and Mesrobian doesn't shy away from the tough nature of the subject matter.
