The Teen Review: “Beginning of Everything” by Robyn Schneider

Ezra Faulkner’s best friend’s tragedy befell him at a young age during his birthday party when he was in the seventh grade, at Disneyland. Ezra’s life-changing tragedy waited until the tail end of his junior year of high school, taking away all of his popularity, talent and friends. No longer the tennis star, Ezra returned to school super pale and unhealthy from a summer spent inside with him unable to walk without a cane. Hanging out with his old friends, not one of whom visited him in the hospital, is just not an option. He ends up rekindling his friendship with his old best friend from the Disneyland tragedy and a group of people, including the new girl, Cassidy Thorpe. She happens to have been a debate star at her old private school, but she mysteriously dropped out. Cassidy, though brilliant and spontaneous, is in general mysterious. With this new friendship, he realizes that humor comes in different forms than keg stands and the ridicule of others. But is it all too good to be true, especially Cassidy? This book was fun yet touching. It had all the qualities I love in a book.
