Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl. Every morning, A wakes in a different person's body, a different person's life. There's 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 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.

Review:

"Levithan has created an irresistible premise that is sure to captivate readers....[Every Day] is a study in style, an exercise in imagination, and an opportunity for readers themselves to occupy another life: that of A, himself." Booklist, Starred Review

Review:

"An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender." Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Synopsis:

A has no friends. No parents. No family. No possessions. No home, even. Because every day, A wakes up in the body of a different person. Every morning, a different bed. A different room. A different house. A different life. A is able to access each person's memory, enough to be able to get through the day without parents, friends, and teachers realizing this is not their child, not their friend, not their student. Because it isn't. It's A. Inhabiting each person's body. Seeing the world through their eyes. Thinking with their brain. Speaking with their voice.

It's a lonely existence — until, one day, it isn't. A meets a girl named Rhiannon. And, in an instant, A falls for her, after a perfect day together. But when night falls, it's over. Because A can never be the same person twice. But yet, A can't stop thinking about her. She becomes A's reason for existing. So each day, in different bodies — of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, walks of life — A tries to get back to her. And convince her of their love. But can their love transcend such an obstacle?

An impressive book, touching on questions of identity, gender and sexuality, parent-child relationships, undocumented immigrants, prejudice against the obese, etc., in a context that is interesting and accessible. Besides that, it's a good read, I found myself wanting very much to know how everything would be resolved, and I was satisfied with the integrity of the ending.

This is an entirely original novel that is both entertaining and thought provoking. While it is a young adult novel, it is a great book that readers of all ages should enjoy. The message about humanity, and how similar we all are at our core, is profound. At the same time, Levithan celebrates our differences by allowing us to glimpse into a day in the life of a variety of characters, reminding us of the beauty and ugliness of humanity. Ultimately, this is one of the most compelling and moving novels I have read. Levithan is a true romantic who paints a clear picture of what love really means and the beauty of finding a soulmate. A is a soul who reminds us of our own humanity.

Very well done! A fascinating premise really well fleshed out. Good for anyone who enjoyed Forgotten by Cat Patrick. I found this to be very captivating. I look forward to more by this author.
