Image result for every day bookBlurb (on back of book): Every day I am someone else. I am myself—I know I am myself—but I am also someone else. It has always been like this.
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.
With his new novel, David Levithan has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate 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.

MY OPINION: *****

What can I even say about Every Day?

Here are some words that begin to describe it:

Beautiful, breathtaking, wonderful, amazing.

Although slightly inappropriate, readers of all ages will enjoy reading about A's sad adventures as he experiences love as one person, but is forced to show it as someone else. This book will especially delight teens, and will draw readers in by the first page.

I was recommended this book by a teacher, who said that it was an amazing read. As some of my friends started to read it, I opened the book and was immediately lost in a world of fiction that is almost impossible to recreate. This is not the best book I have ever read, but it was still amazing enough for me to go on and on about, and recommend to other people.

I am not sure what genre this book is, so I just categorized it into Young Adult Fiction. It has some very real elements, but it also includes some very fictional features that are not real.

A is a strong character who has learned to brave the pressures of his life and the lives he inhibits per day. He learns not to interfere and ruin someone else's life, until he meets Rhiannon. He is so drawn by her that he will do anything to see her again.

Rhiannon is a different character: a brave but also weak person who tricks herself into loving people that she doesn't, until she meets A. He changes her whole life, but because of his predicament, she can't do anything about him or his lives.

Overall, this book was amazing and I highly recommend it to teenagers above the age of twelve or thirteen.

Main Character: A
Sidekick(s): Rhiannon, people who A inhibits for a day
Villain(s): Changing bodies everyday, love, etc
Fiction Elements: This cannot happen in real life.
