The Beginning of Everything - Robyn Schneider
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.
3/5 stars (liked it)
This book reminded me very much of Paper Towns by John Green. Seems to me that all the terrible things that happened to Ezra were actually the best things to happen to him. His friends were jerks that never cared about him. His girlfriend only went out with him in order to look good. Because of all of this he rekindles an old friendship with someone who truly cares for him. He develops new relationships with friends and gets over his girlfriend. In the end, even though Ezra's life was not what he thought it would be it actually seems like he grows up and becomes a better person.
