Review- Every Day by: David Levithan

Every Day


Book Description (Goodreads):

August 28, 2012

In his New York Times bestselling novel, David Levithan introduces readers to what Entertainment Weekly calls a "wise, wildly unique" love story about A, a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life.

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.

With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, 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.

I really enjoyed this book. For me, it was a real eye-opener about life. It shows you how other people live, it even lets you live that life with them. When the author chose to focus on this aspect of the book... it made me really happy. (:
But, there were other aspects that I also enjoyed. A's relationship with Rhiannon was really refreshing. It happened very fast, which I didn't like at all, but I got over it and let myself fall into it pretty easily.
There was also Nathan, a kid who knew A's secret but didn't understand it, and at first I found Nathan annoying but then... David Levithan said something about answers leading to more questions and it all became worth it for some reason, like Nathan was only in this story so that David could teach us that important lesson.
And. That. Ending. Let's just say.. not what I expected, but I still loved and understood it.
Overall, I would give this book 4 stars. 
What could make this book five stars for me? Let the relationship move forward on its own, don't rush it.  Regardless, this book made me a fan of David Levithan.
Should you read it?
Yes, if you ever get in the mood to have your perspective broadened. Even if you don't, it was a great story and you should give 'er a chance. (:


If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)
I would say that this book reminds me of If I Stay by: Gayle Forman, because they are both about people in love that have to choose to stay where they are or stay with their loved one(s).
