The Beginning of Everything
The Beginning of Everything | Robyn Schneider
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 beforebefore his girlfriend cheated on him, before a car accident shattered his leg, and before he fell in love with unpredictable new girl Cassidy Thorpe.As Kirkus Reviews said in a starred review, "Schneider takes familiar stereotypes and infuses them with plenty of depth. Here are teens who could easily trade barbs and double entendres with the characters that fill John Green's novels."Funny, smart, and including everything from flash mobs to blanket forts to a poodle who just might be the reincarnation of Jay Gatsby, The Beginning of Everything is a refreshing contemporary twist on the classic coming-of-age novela heart-wrenching story about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.

Hi everyone! This book is about Ezra finding himself after his girlfriend cheated on him and he got in a car accident that shattered his leg. This book is mainly about how he grew through everything he went through. It was okay. #litsy #kindle #kindlefire #paperwhite #library

This book was reminiscent of a John Green novel. It contained a male narrator, a mysterious female love interest, a tightly bonded group of friends, and witty banter. Not as witty as Green 😉. I was quickly invested in the characters and needed to know what would happen to them. The conclusion was meh, but the journey was enjoyable.
“I pictured her tragically; it never once occurred to me to picture her as the tragedy.”

I decided to paint around the TV bracket on the wall instead of taking it off, and it was both more and less of a pain in the ass than I thought it would be. But I‘m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! 👍 #AudioPainting

Overall I liked this book. The characters were pretty funny and believable, although the narration was a bit far-fetched for being a teenage boy. I really enjoyed the climax and couldn‘t put the book down when trying to figure out why Cassidy was acting the way she was. The ending was a little less climactic than it could‘ve been but overall a pretty solid YA read.

I truly loved that book. It made me think about how a single moment can turn our whole lives around. But instead of giving up after a tragedy we can use it as a stepping stone to start over and discover who we really are. 😊

This book was so good that I devoured it in a couple of hours. 💖

Filled with sharp wit and endearing sarcasm, this contemporary YA novel appeals to fans of John Green and Ned Vizzini. The narrator was brilliant and a great character overall. Interesting story and surprising ending.

The Beginning of Everything was originally titled Severed Heads, Broken Hearts. It also had a different cover. I really liked the original title, so I was a little torn that it was changed. I do love the cover with the rollercoaster. ?

I'm currently working on my homework assignments, since I'm trying to get everything done or as many things as possible done before I start working again. I also want to try to read a little bit more of Fangirl because I have been reading this book for like a month.

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

This is one of the best books I've ever read. There were many plot twists, and I loved the story line between Ezra and Cassidy. I love how the characters develop over the course of the book, and overall it was really great. One of my absolute favorites!

The #libraryhaul I just did had NONE of the books I originally wanted. All of those #tbr books were checked out, so I placed a hold for each one. Then, I got some other ones, cause what else should I have done? :)

The Beginning of Everything is my second Robyn Scheinder and I'm super excited. I loved Extraordinary Means.

Like Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska, this YA novel features a stuck-in-rut upper middle class boy whose life is turned upside down when he mets a mysterious, wild, beautiful but troubled girl. I had some mixed feelings about that. But, also like Green's stories, this one is full of philosophical musings, clever humor and a search for larger truths. The concluding message is solid and timeless. Thumbs up for those bits!

I love my kids, but it's been 15 years now since I've been able to read a book uninterrupted. 😫 This book looks promising, but at this rate, it may take weeks to find out.
