Book Review: Sex and Violence
Author: Carrie Mesrobian
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Teen Reviewer: Emily St. Louis.
Synopsis: Evan is a guy that gets with a lot of girls, and that's what makes him Evan.
After trying to get with one girl at the wrong time, he is brutally beaten in
his high school bathroom and left to suffer. His attackers left him with broken
bones, lots of blood, and a ruptured spleen. His father, who is always moving
around, decides it would be best to pack up and settle down in his old hometown
to get Evan away from it all. Evan, who is left unable to even shower, has a
hard time with the move, once again being the new kid in a town where everybody
knows everyone. Even if the town is friendly, Evan has never been so alone
I really loved the book! It was so good, and Carrie really did a great job with
all the detail. The book does go into detail with sexual themes, and as a young
adult/teen reader, it gave the book some realism that some teen books are
lacking. It was a personal favorite of mine, and I think that it left a
lasting impression on me.
