In his New York Times bestselling novel, David Levithan introduces readers to what Entertainment Weekly
calls a “wise, wildly unique” love story about A, a teen who wakes up
every morning in a different body, living a different life.

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made
peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get
too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It’s all fine
until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets
Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A
has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he
wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.

With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist,
has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a
captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to
comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and
Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined
to change every day.

David Levithan wrote a masterpiece. I never read this kind of novel ever since I go back to reading and for me it is something that I will never get tired of reading. The story leads me to different lives of people in one body but different surroundings. A man who falls in-love to a girl he met once and that’s the start of everything, breaking the rules that he learned to live for so long, a girl that changed his life. It is hard for everyone to accept the fact that things are set that way. He can’t even spend a week with the girl she loves and sometimes he is too far away from her. He’s also sacrificing the lives of people whom he keeps using. “With relationships, you have to shape the pieces on each end before they go perfectly together.” Excerpt From: David, Levithan. “Every Day.” Page 213 (on my ebook copy).

He’s name is A, I definitely like him for he keeps hoping that something will change and everything will work out just fine. He keeps believing that things will turn out alright someday. He also loves his girl, Rhiannon, too much no matter what it takes. No matter what hindrances are on your way you will do something for the one you love, that’s what he thought me.

Honestly? the book made me cry at the end. I will not tell you why, just read it 🙂 . Anyway, this is such a good book for somehow, it flashes the different lives of people and how they live and how are you going to see and accept that. One more thing is, I was imagining it myself, what if I was him? being him living in someone’s body, thinking how will you act, seeing different people no permanent parents, no permanent surroundings. It sounds fun, but it sounds awful too. You won’t be able to enjoy things that people usually do, no one really cares for you. It’s like you exists yet you don’t. 

David Levithan is such a good writer and I want to read more of his books, I haven’t read Will Grayson, Will Grayson but I will soon. The book is full of awesomeness. 
“Everybody wants to believe in a higher power. Everybody wants to belong to something bigger than themselves, and everybody wants company in doing that.”  Excerpt From: David, Levithan. “Every Day.” Page 68 (on my ebook copy).
