"Sex & Violence"
Carolrhoda LAB

Local author Carrie Mesrobian has written a young adult novel with an adult-sounding theme: sex and consequences. Her debut novel, "Sex and Violence" involves a promiscuous young man who moves to Minnesota to recover from some of those consequences.

Mesrobian joins The Daily Circuit to talk about "Sex and Violence," the importance of male narrators in young adult novels, and which new YA books she's crazy about.
