About the Book

About the Author

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: Blog: Tumblr: Twitter: @CarrieMesrobian


  • 'Packed with realistically lewd dialogue that is often darkly funny, this is a pitch-perfect, daring novel about how sex and violence fracture a life and the painstakingly realistic process of picking up the pieces. Evan's struggle is enormously sympathetic, even when he is not.', Kirkus
  • '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 and 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, Bestselling author of 'If I Stay'
  • 'A great story, a brilliant debut and a read I highly recommend!', Once Upon a Bookcase
