Summary (from Goodreads):
After reading a not so good book The Beginning of Everything was just what I needed. I chose this as my Dewey's Read-A-Thon book and read it in a day. Truthfully I couldn't put this book down and would not see the hours pass by. I love a book that can do that for me.
Ezra was a very relatable character and I have met many people like him that are so worried about people's expectations. The character that really stood out to be was Cassidy Thorpe. She had the ability to defey all odds and not let people's mean words effect her. Her relationship with Ezra throughout The Beginning of Everything is what really kept the book moving. It was amazing just how in sync they were when they came from such different backgrounds.
Ezra's tragic event lead to the beginning of everything. He was able to begin his life in a whole new ways, create new friends, and bond with old friends. Ezra became a better version of himself after his accident. The ending of The Beginning of Everything was tear-jerking and very sad. As I mentioned before I grew quite attached to Cassidy's character and what she did to Ezra and what happened to her was hard to handle. Life goes on and you grow and change. It isn't easy wondering what could have been. This is a must read and easily my favorite book of the year so far.
This book was my To-Be Read List Pick for April.
