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. – Goodreads
Every day, A wakes up in a new body: different race, different size, different gender… A is not defined by any of these characteristics and tries to respect the host body as much as possible during the time spent in it. Then A, in the body of Justin, meets Rhiannon and everything changes. A feels a connection that has never happened before and A can’t let go of that feeling. From then on, each day as someone new, A and Rhiannon form a bond that gives a new meaning to love without restriction.
David Levithan truly made the feelings between Rhiannon and A palpable. It’s not smooth sailing for the two, as there was a certain amount of uncertainty along the way, but it was easy to understand their closeness and how easy it was to be themselves with each other. There was never any issue about their feelings and that was a powerful thing to me because so many relationships are judged based on their race, gender, and other reasons that shouldn’t even be an issue. Love is love and it should be respected; ridiculous notions presented against it should be done away with. The end.
Every Day is the type of book that will stick with me and I’m thankful that David Levithan came up with such an ambitious concept. With his beautiful writing, I can only hope that it will open the eyes of readers who may have a more restricted definition of what makes love true.
