Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you! I’m back today with a Book Review and that book is titled, “The Beginning of Everything.”
Robyn Schneider’s The Beginning of Everything is a witty and heart-wrenching teen novel that will appeal to fans of books by John Green and Ned Vizzini, novels such as The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and classics like The Great Gatsby and The Catcher in the Rye.
Varsity tennis captain, Ezra Faulkner, was supposed to be homecoming king, but that was before—before his girlfriend cheated on him, before a car accident shattered his leg, and before he fell in love with unpredictable new girl Cassidy Thorpe.
I have to tell you, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s written for the Young Adult Market and it illustrates what happens when your life is turned upside down by a tragedy. Told with grace and humor, it depicts the inner strength of the main character, Ezra as he tries to navigate high school life after his accident.
He falls in love with Cassidy and even though you know the relationship is doomed you don’t know why, and that keeps the reader hooked.
There’s also a twist I didn’t see coming and that’s one of the things I liked about the story. Once it’s revealed, the reader understands Cassidy better and so does Ezra. It’s an amazing story, and I highly recommend it for adults and young adults alike.
