The Beginning of Everything Robyn Schneider Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

As Kirkus 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 novel—a 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.

User reviews about this book

  • One of the best YA books in a long time

    By joematthews29
    I am happy to say that this is a book that I have been waiting for: a YA book that is well written, has a great plot with a twist, and dynamic, yet blemished, characters. I give it one of my highest recommendations for those who like YA literature.
  • pretty good

    By xlyndseymarie
    i really enjoyed this book, finished it in just a couple days; it sucked me in. i loved ezra’s humor and wit. i always rooted for relationship of ezra and cassidy, but was disappointed with the end of the book. i understood where the author wanted it to go and the “moral of the story” i suppose is the right way to put it, but i found it sad and anticlimactic. i guess i knew it wouldn’t be rainbows and love and butterflies by the end, but i expected something more from the conclusion of the book; maybe something brighter— but i guess that isn’t real life after-all. i truly loved ezra and his character in the novel; definitely a guy i would kick back and have a beer with. from his wit and banter to his deep thoughts and revelations; his character was nothing short of perfect. i’m glad i read the book.

    By ErickTheKatycat
    It was fun to read, couldn't let down and it's not a cheesy ending as you would expect. It was lacking a little more action in characters tho. Would totally recommend this book.
