Just a few weeks ago, a favorite former student recommended The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider.
“I got you a copy,” he said, reaching in to his backpack as we passed each other headed to homeroom.
We’d exchanged books throughout his 7th grade year and titles as we passed in the halls this year. I knew I had to read this book ASAP.
The Beginning of Everything has a strong voice and a great hook. Well, two hooks that literally will make you gasp out loud. You’ll love the narrator even when he can’t stand himself and you’ll never see the end coming. I guarantee it.
High School can be a cruel place when you go from being star of the varsity tennis team to second string on the debate team. Read about Ezra’s journey and how he bounces back. Kind of.
Robyn Schneider’s The Beginning of Everything has romance, tragedy and, believe it or not, a generous dose of humor. You’ll love it.
