Robyn Schneider's The Beginning of Everything is a witty and heart-wrenching teen novel that will appeal to fans of books by John Green and Ned Vizzini, novels such as The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and classics like The Great Gatsby and The Catcher in the Rye. 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. As Kirkus Reviews said in a starred review, "Schneider takes familiar stereotypes and infuses them with plenty of depth. Here are teens who could easily trade barbs and double entendres with the characters that fill John Green's novels." Funny, smart, and including everything from flash mobs to blanket forts to a poodle who just might be the reincarnation of Jay Gatsby, The Beginning of Everything is a refreshing contemporary twist on the classic coming-of-age novel—a heart-wrenching story about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.

A PEN / E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award Finalist A real-life neurological mystery and captivating story of reinvention by the New York Times bestselling author of The Daring Book for Girls. Andrea Buchanan lost her mind while crossing the street one blustery March morning. The cold winter air triggered a coughing fit, and she began to choke. She was choking on a lot that day. A sick child. A pending divorce. The guilt of failing as a partner and as a mother. When the coughing finally stopped, she thought it was over. She could not have been more wrong. When she coughed that morning, a small tear ripped through her dura mater, the membrane covering the brain and spinal cord. But she didn’t know that yet. Instead, Andrea went on with her day, unaware that her cerebrospinal fluid was already beginning to leak out of that tiny opening. What followed was nine months of pain and confusion as her brain, no longer cushioned by a healthy waterbed of fluid, sank in her skull. At a time in her life when she needed to be as clear-thinking as possible?as a writer, as a mother, as a woman attempting to strike out on her own after two decades of marriage?she was plagued by cognitive impairment and constant pain, trapped by her own brain—all while mystifying doctors and pushing the limits of medical understanding. In this luminous and moving narrative, Andrea reveals the astonishing story of this tumultuous year—her fraught search for treatment; how patients, especially women, fight to be seen as reliable narrators of their own experiences; and how her life-altering recovery process affected both her and her family. The mind-brain connection is one of the greatest mysteries of the human condition. In some folklore, the cerebrospinal fluid around the brain is thought to be the place where consciousness actually begins. Here, in the pages of The Beginning of Everything, Andrea seeks to understand: Where was “I” when I wasn’t there?

About 13.8 billion years ago the universe was born, with space and time coming into being in the same instant. By the time the universe was 1 second old, the four forces in nature had acquired their present characteristics, elementary particles had obtained their mass, and particles constituting the nuclei of atoms were created. The nuclei of light elements, hydrogen and helium, were formed within the first 10 minutes of the birth of the universe with the first stable atoms coming to existence when the universe was 380,000 years old. Over the next billions of years, the first generation of stars and galaxies formed, planetary systems came into existence, and life on Earth appeared and evolved, resulting today's plants and animals. Origins: The Story of the Beginning of Everything is a fascinating tale of the beginning of the universe, the origin of life, the start of civilization, and everything in between. The text explores the nature of space and time, the origin of particles, mass and chemical elements, and the first stars and galaxies. Readers learn about the origin of the planetary systems and Earth, the genesis of life on Earth and the dawning of agriculture, the first cities, civilization, and language. The book takes readers on a journey to the depth of space and beginning of time, to where stars and galaxies formed and life started, a place and a time no one has ever been. This journey does not exhaust us physically but enriches us intellectually. Through the text, readers can better understand themselves and their position in the world. The book provides a well-organized and comprehensive response to the question of where everything comes from in the most basic and scientific senses. The book is well-suited to courses in astronomy and physics. Bahram Mobasher earned his Ph.D. in observational cosmology at the University of Durham in the United Kingdom. He performed research as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Leicester and Imperial College London.

The Beginning of Everything rolls out on many levels. First of all, it is a narrative about the most sparsely documented times in history. Characters are brought to life in action and dialogue, providing images of how life must have been. Vivid details decorate their environment and sensitively reveal their personal thoughts and emotions. Nature, in all of its peaceful glory, majesty, and power, both soothes the sensitive soul and horrifies the reader with scenes of unspeakable power and wrath. Time stands still as the ingenious, creative order of all that we know comes to life. Shocking revelations bear indisputable truths as the reader’s eyes are opened to what was right before them all the time on the pages of the Holy Scripture. The controversial clash between so-called science and faith finds common ground in the truths that overpower assumptions. Challenging questions are asked and answered in precise and convincing revelation, such as: “Was Adam’s wife named Eve in the garden?” Or, “Was sunlight the light that shined when ‘Let there be light’ was spoken?”

Her name is Persia: a girl of the 1970s, cherishing a nature sure in its curiosity and uncluttered values. His name is Adrian Parkes-Bourne: a man magnificent in his firm grasp on life and and his belief in modern affluence. The beginning is their meeting, and that is also an end, for Persia's life becomes singed by the relationship then bleached to suburban conformity. This is a simple story of a marriage between self certainty and self probity; a marriage where freedom of spirit is fettered and disciplined and life is seen as a continuing sequence of beginnings and ends.
