Author(s): David Levithan
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. And then 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 A has found someone he wants to be with - day in, day out, day after day. Can you love someone who is destined to change each day?
David Levithan brings all his trademark insight to a novel that is edgy, romantic and page-turning. Every Day has a touch of the paranormal and a grounding in the real world.
Last month I was half way through David Levithan's Every Day. This was excellent; one of the best YA reads I've come across this year. A wonderful premise (about ‘A’ who wakes up in someone else’s body every morning), backed up with great writing and a satisfying story - a story about falling in love, about morality and trying to understand one's own life and motivations. - Stella
I’m in the process of reading Every Day by David Levithan. This is an excellent YA book about ‘A’ who wakes up in someone else’s body every morning. I loved the premise of this, and the book doesn’t disappoint – a story about falling in love, about morality and trying to understand one’s own life and motivations. I’m curious about the outcome. Will ‘A’ understand why s/he inhabits others bodies? Will true love win out? Will ‘A’ compromise the safety and sanity of others for his/her own desires? - Stella
Every day 'A' wakes up one day older in the body of another person, never too far from the last person he woke up as. He experiences life as that person and the next day wakes up in another person’s body. In the course of the book we experience A’s life from day 5994 to 6034, he is 15 and wakes up in the body of Justin and meets his girlfriend Rhiannon. Never before has he interfered with the lives of the people he occupies. The book explores issues of identity, prejudice and how most of our lives are essentially the same, it’s only small differences that divide us. This book has cemented David Levithan as one of my favourite young adult authors. - Sarah

It is? OK, well then I'll just say this book is terrific, and if you'll excuse me, I have something in my eye.' - Daniel Handler
