Severed Heads, Broken Hearts

Author(s): Robyn Schneider

Young Adult

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 had everything to lose: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra's knee, his athletic career, and his social life. No longer part of the popular crowd, 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 crazy adventures. Together, Ezra and Cassidy discover flash mobs, buried treasure, secret movie screenings and a poodle that might just be the reincarnation of Jay Gatsby. 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 his tragedy has already happened and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what will happen if misfortune strikes again? Robyn Schneider's Severed Heads, Broken Hearts is a lyrical, witty and heart-wrenching novel about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.
