Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.

No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.

But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?

Robyn Schneider’s The Beginning of Everything is a lyrical, witty, and heart-wrenching novel about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.

Why I’m waiting?
I need this book. My reasons why:

  1. The cover. It’s bright. The yellow captures my attention. The typography is lovely. It fits perfectly and isn’t overdone. The cover has a frickin’ rollercoaster in the background. How can I not? 
  2. There’s a boy named Ezra. Ezraaaaa. I like that name. If I write a book, there will be a character named Ezra. 
  3. Cassidy Thorpe and her endless adventures! I hope she’s a wonderful character from the synopsis. She sounds like a strong female character. We all need a strong female character, especially in contemporary YA. 

What books are you waiting for on this Wednesday?

    I remember the old cover for this one and am kind of bummed they changed it but I can’t be too disappointed when the new one is so bright and eye-catching!
