The Beginning of Everything

The Beginning of Everything - Robyn Schneider Ezra Faulkner is adjusting to life after an accident takes away his ability to play tennis. For such a long time it has defined who he is and now he doesn't have it going into his senior year of high school. He spent the summer avoiding all of his friends and trying to come to terms with what he will do when he goes back to school.Cassidy is the new girl and although it is clear she is hiding something, she refuses to talk about it. A number of the kids that Ezra ends up hanging out with know her from her old school because of debate and ultimately she and Ezra become close.I loved the two of them together. The friendship and banter ultimately turns into more and eventually they are a couple. Another great thing about this book are the secondary characters. Toby was definitely one of my favorites and honestly, the way he is introduced to the story by Ezra has to be one of my favorite character introductions. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but it definitely had me wondering how the rest of the book would be.Overall this book had me turning the pages to find out what would happen next. It isn't all puppy dogs and rainbows...if you don't care for angst this won't be for you but I truly enjoyed this book. It was wonderful to see Ezra (with the help of Cassidy) come to realize what he wants to do and understand that one thing does not define him entirely.5 full stars for this book.
