The Beginning of Everything
Golden boy Ezra Faulkner
believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter
after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular
tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular
night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and
his social life.
No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King,
Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl
Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly
effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on
her endless adventures.
But as Ezra dives into his new studies,
new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books,
are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy
has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what
happens when more misfortune strikes?
