Every Day by David Levithan(5 out of 5)
A is born and every day he wakes up in another person’s body. The following day, it’s another person. Day after that, same
story. Different person, different body, different memories. You’re probably saying “What led to that?” . The thing I love
about this book is that it’s not your typical book- you think it would be a scientific experiment gone wrong, or a sci-fi novel,
but it’s not. It’s a GREAT PREMISE to start this book off with. A is a great character, you feel his pain and puzzlement. He
wonders- quite often- why this happens only to him. A makes the worst move ever- when in someone’s else’s body, a moody
teen boy named Justin- he falls in love with his girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that point on, A finds ways to keep in touch with
Rhiannon, and finally tells her what is going on. Does she believe? How does this proceed? Does Rhiannon break up with
Justin and try to make a relationship work with A, despite the challenges it would bring? Does A ever find out what led to
this? Does he ever get caught? What happens?
Simple answer- Read this book. It’s beautiful, it’s realistic, and it’s a fast read that you can’t put down.
