Every Day by David Levithan
Series: Every Day #1
Publication: August 28, 2012 by Knopf Books
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
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.
This book is exactly what the little quote on the cover says: “Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.” Many readers love this book, but I particularly wasn’t fond of it. Don’t get me wrong, I found the concept for the story truly intriguing. However, something about it made me put the book down so many times and never want to pick it up again. Fortunately, I did manage to pick the book up and finish reading because I wanted to know what happens to “A” [the character that switches bodies every day] and his relationship with the girl he encounters while in someone else’s body. Throughout the whole book the most disappointing thing to me was the ending. The ending DID NOT appeal to me at all. Seriously through, HOW CAN A BOOK END LIKE THAT?!?! Hopefully the sequel to this series: Another Day #2, which is in the girls’ POV, will be better.
