Every Day


Every Day by David Levithan (2012)

I want love to conquer all. But love can’t conquer anything. It can’t do anything on its own.
It relies on us to do the conquering on its behalf.

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. (Author’s website)

  1. I loved this book. This is the kind of book you want to highlight passages from because the author knows exactly how to say things you have felt or experienced before. But, dont….. if it’s a library book. I liked how race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. and all those things we define ourselve with, are proven to be irrelevant. I couldn’t imagine how the author could possibly come up with a good ending, but he did. I just started reading Every You, Every Me by the same author, and I like it too. I wish David Levithan would write a prequel or sequel to this book.
