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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite books I loved this book. It's a big mix of romance, mystery, and tragedy. And you can't forget the good quotes! ****if you loved Paper Towns or Looking for Alaska read this book!***

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth the read This book will likely appeal to fans of John Green. In fact, there were parts of this story that almost screamed Looking for Alaska or Paper Towns. And while it was good, I cant really figure out what it was trying to say: the actual point of the story was and is lost on me. While I understand that not every book needs to have any kind of underlying Message About Life, I still finished this novel feeling very underwhelmed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected something much bigger The book was very well written, I mostly enjoyed following the different well-developed, likeable characters. The only thing that kept me turning the page was the anticipation of a bigger-better story line. After finishing, I realize the story was kind of dull, and the ending was a huge let down

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining indeed. Buzzfeed recommended it and gave it quite a good rating. Started reading and fell in love almost instantly. I'm almost done and I pretty much don't want it to end. Highly recommended if you want a read that is light and also entertaining. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Fortunate Findings of this Book This book is so unbelievably relatable, even for girls like me. I fell in love with Ezra in the 24 hours it took for me to inhale this book. I love it and recommend it to anyone. It's my new favourite book and love the reality band truth in the story and how it's not just some cliché.
