    Ezra Slevin is a nerdy insomniac who has his own secret YouTube channel full of him doing skits of Johnny Depp characters from all his movies. He's also had a crush on Imogen since they did a Shakespeare play together in 4th grade. Ezra's problem, other than his innate shyness, is Wyno...

    This book was written for pop culture enthusiasts, nerds, and others everywhere. One of the funniest books that I have read in a very long time. Norton encapsulated the torment of being in love, in high school and not quite fitting in or understanding oneself. Then once you are wrapped...

    Bravo! This was such a fantastically well done book! Quirky, unique and dare I say, STRANGE (in the best way possible), characters. The characterizations in this book were certainly a highlight but Norton also was able to get us truly invested in their friends and family and the trauma...

    'Where I End & You Begin' is a teen rom-com with switching bodies, Shakespeare, and a non-Euclidean love polygon. It's full of over-the-top fun, that never gets so much as to be obnoxious about it, and the characters all feel relatably confused by both their current predicaments an...

    Originally posted on Small Review Freaky Friday body-swap stories aren't unique, but I do have a soft spot for them. Last year I read and enjoyed Preston Norton's Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe and while that book was a hot mess of every issue and 90s reference plus the ...

    I think the idea is solid and interesting; the humor is laugh out loud good. But somehow the story dragged and become overly complicated in some areas. I found myself skimming because it just couldn't hold my interest. ...

    So first off, I'll mention that I love the body swapping trope and some of my favorite films include Freaky Friday, Big, 18 Again, Vice Versa, 17 Again and the like. Now I've read a few body swapping books, and my experience has been that this trope doesn't translate all that well to t...

    This was such a fun book! It follows the lives of Ezra Slevin and Wynonna Jones as they body-swap Freaky Friday style. They are not sure how or when to predict the swaps. It becomes a love square(?) since Ezra has a crush on Imogen, who happens to be Wynonna's best friend. And Wynonna ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Where I End & You Begin by Preston Norton is a unique and fun YA contemporary body swap novel - think Twelfth Night meets Freaky Friday. For the most part, this novel really delivered for me. The cast of characte...

    Overall rating: 2.5-3 stars Thank you, Disney, for sending me this ARC through NetGalley! I'm a huge Twelfth Night fan and was excited to read this book when I read the premise. That being said, even though I read the book in a day, I found it underwhelming. I think there was a l...

    I kind of knew what I would be getting into when I borrowed this book from the library... which is exactly why I wanted to read it. And I did enjoy it, but I admit that there were times when the story went all over the place and some things felt like they didn't make sense within the c...

    Where I End & You Begin, written by Preston Norton, is a fun, quirky young adult book delving into that monumental question that all teens ask themselves?Where do I fit in? I did not know what to expect from this book, and if I am honest, I was pleasantly surprised. Where I E...

    This story is Twelfth Night meets Freaky Friday with tons of pop culture and teen banter thrown in to make it a strange but endearing read. This book kept surprising me and completely forged it own path to be a stand out among the typical YA classic story adaptations. I couldn't stop r...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars Ezra had been pining away for Imogen for the past 7 years, and when he was finally going to act on his feelings, he suddenly found himself body swapping with Wynonna, his enemy and Imogen's best friend. This was actually a fun and interesting take on the whole ...

    This was the perfect nerdy book with countless 80s references, a total eclipse, and Shakespeare's The Twelfth Night all rolled into one. I felt that Where I End and You Begin had the perfect balance of humor and depth. When Ezra and Wynona begin switching bodies Freaky Friday style...

    It's Twelfth Night-ception! In a story based on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, the characters are acting in their school's performance of Twelfth Night, and watch and discuss movies based on Twelfth Night (like She's the Man)---and it is glorious!!! Somehow, geeky, shy Ezra switches bodi...

    This book is exactly like freaky Friday, but on drugs. And the people who swap aren't family members, they're enemies, kind of. Oh and they're the opposite sex and they both have crushes on both of their best friends. ...

    I capital-L loved this book! I'm not going to lie, my diehard never ending love for She's the Man was 60% of the reason I picked this book up (so the fact that it was referenced MULTIPLE times with direct quotes was basically a dream) so I was expecting it to just be a fun body-swap...

    3.5 Stars*** TW: Sexual exploitation/revenge porn of a minor, death of a parent, alcoholism In all reality, this is an incredibly enjoyable book. The characters are interesting, and who wouldn't love a "Freaky Friday" esque body-swapping plot line with characters who hate each ot...

    Where I End And You Begin is a truly unique story. It was not what I expected, but I liked it because it's unusual and requires you to think. The characters are likeable and engaging and entertaining. The story is well written and kind of crazy but in a good way. I think young adult re...

    Wow wow wow, I really liked this book! It was quirky, hilarious, and very well-written. The characters were dynamic and interesting and the way this plays into the body swapping is great. Each character is dealing with something, even down to the secondary characters, and I really felt...

    I almost abandoned this book. I wasn't a big fan of the humor at first. It reminded me of Denton Little's Deathdate by Lance Rubin, where the writing came off as a middle aged man trying desperately to sound like a teenage boy. As the plot advances and the characters grow toget...
