Teens Review TBOE
This book tells the story of a star athlete. He is rich and popular, but one day, a mysterious car crash cripples him for life. Ezra will never play tennis again. He is reduced to a nobody. He is friendless, but he could have still have one friend, but Ezra shunned Toby when there was a traumatizing incident where Toby caught a decapitated boy's head at Disneyland. But life progresses, and Ezra meets a girl named Cassidy. Ezra, Toby, and Cassidy happen to be in several of the same classes. What happens next will be a rollercoaster of friendship, love, and anger. -- Review by Anshul
This was a great read. It illustrates the life of Ezra Faulkner after his tragedy. He falls in love with Cassidy Thrope and reunites with his old friend Toby. Ezra enters a different world as he joins the debate team with different friends and discovers the beauty of life. This book has great detail and plenty of wit! -- Review by Douglas
Teens: We need your help!
The idea for Newton Reads started with teens.
As a teen in Newton, we'd really love to hear your voice and would love for you to take an active role in leading discussions for the Newton Read book, The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider. One of the programs in October will be a book discussion on Thursday, October 30 at 7:00 pm at the Library. We're inviting the community (teens and up), to be involved in conversations brought up in the book.
We'll be meeting the beginning of September (There will be food. PROMISE!) to plan the book discussion event on 10/30. We'll be coming up with questions, creating a discussion guide, and looking for volunteers to help run small discussion groups about the book during the event. To be involved, email: email@example.com
