Review by Sarah McDuling

This gorgeous #LoveOzYa anthology of short stories is one of my favourite things that has happened in 2017 so far. So many amazing Australian authors. So many delightful, magical, wonderful YA stories. It’s pure heaven!

Covering pretty much every genre out there, Begin, End, Begin offers a beautifully diverse spectrum of storytelling. We have a bit of everything, from space romance and psychic powers, to time travel and contemporary realism. Besides the fact that all the authors are Australian, there’s really only one thing these stories have in common - every single one them is a sparkling gem!

I was over the moon to read stories from some of my absolute favourite authors ever (I’m looking at you Amie Kaufman, Will Kostakis and Jaclyn Moriarty), as well as discovering some new favourites along the way. (Like how after reading Ellie Marney’s story, I immediately went and bought all three books in the Every series because Watts and Mycroft are my new obsession.)

As well as the above mentioned authors, we also have stories from Alice Pung, Lili Wilkinson, Gabrielle Tozer, Michael Pryor, Danielle Binks and Melissa Keil… and I’m not kidding when I say they are all fantastic.

This awesome anthology makes me proud to be Australian, and so very happy to be a YA reader. I know I am going to be re-reading this collection many times in the future. This is essential reading for fans of all the authors involved, as well as anyone who likes good storytelling.

About the Author

Amie Kaufman is the New York Times and internationally bestselling co-author of Illuminae and These Broken Stars. Her multiple award-winning books are slated for publication in over thirty countries, though none of them have made it to space yet. Amie did get to work as a storytelling consultant with NASA, though, which was as awesome as it sounds.

    Amie Kaufman

    Amie Kaufman is the New York Times and internationally bestselling co-author of the award-winning Starbound trilogy (These Broken Stars, This Shattered World) and The Illuminae Files trilogy (Illuminae). Her multi-award winning work has been published in 30 countries, and described as “a game-changer” (Shelf Awareness), “stylistically mesmerising” (Publishers Weekly) and “out-of-this-world awesome” (Kirkus).

    Amie had the good fortune to be raised just one block from her local library, and took full advantage of that fact growing up. She and her sister spent their childhood summers re-creating their favourite books by camping in the back yard, mapping their neighbourhood, climbing trees, stepping through magical doors and sailing the local seas. Raised in Australia and Ireland, she has kissed the Blarney stone six times, thoroughly cementing her gift of the gab.

    As she grew older (but not up), she continued her education, and graduated with honors degrees in history, literature and law, and a master’s degree in conflict resolution. After working as a mediator for seven years, these days she’s a full time writer, working from her home in Melbourne when she’s not on the road in the US, Europe and Asia. A few of her top travel moments include camping in the Sahara overnight, climbing a mountain in Vietnam, standing on the Great Wall of China and cycling the Loire Valley, but she has a huge list left to cover.

    Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and their rescue dog, Jack. She’s a huge fan of chocolate and naps, has an enormous music collection, and an entire room of her house is devoted to her library. She still sails, and though she climbs fewer trees, she remains partial to investigating the occasional magical door.
