Every Day by David Levithan

quick synopsis:
From the author’s website:
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.

my thoughts:
This book was fantastic. While a little out there, the premise is intriguing, and David Levithan completely nails it. I got so caught up in A’s world, and I really had a hard time putting it down. In fact, I finished it in only 5 days. I couldn’t help but think about how it would be to live a life like A’s, and what someone would feel about living my life for a day. While I sometimes found A’s obsessive nature when it came to his love for Rhiannon a mild annoyance, I understand that that obsession is on point for a 16 year old experiencing love for the first time. While this book is technically a young adult novel, A’s story is so captivating, that I didn’t really notice.

final verdict:
This is a quick read, that leaves a lasting impression. I would highly recommend it!
