Every day by David Levithan

I’m already a fan of David Levithan , he co wrote one of my most favourite books EVER ! Which is of course Will Grayson Will Grayson .

So I had high expectations for this book , and it didn’t let me down.

I love the authors style of writing. It’s very fresh. It keeps moving. I read the book in one go because I just had to keep turning the pages.

The book is about ‘A’
Every day ‘A’ wakes up in a different body.
Always a body of the same age , ‘A’ is sixteen now and always in roughly the same area , unless the host body were to get on a plane for example.
Then A would be stuck in the new area till another host travelled.

One day A wakes up in Justin’s body and A meets Rhiannon , Justin’s girlfriend. A feels a connection to Rhiannon instantly and the next day when A wakes up in somebody else’s body ” he” can’t stop thinking about Rhiannon and wanting to be with her.

A is compelled to go back and see Rhiannon and their love story begins.
Can love overcome everything ?
Can you love someone for what’s inside even if you can never truly see who they are on the outside ?

The story moves quickly and over the course of the story A is in the body of many different characters , some more interesting than others , but never boring.

It manages to be touching and moving without ever being soppy.
We never find out how A came to be or ‘what’ A is and it’s a tragic story but that doesn’t matter because it’s just so good.
