Every Day by David Levithan
I have never read a book like this before but then that is what you expect of David Levithan.
Person “A” wakes up every day in the body of another person his own age and he has done it for the whole of his life. “A” has never had a body of his own, a family of his own or anything that defines a human life. He is always himself inside someone else and he lives their life rather than his own.
Until he meets Rhiannon while in the body of her boyfriend Justin. He falls in love and every day while in another body whether it be boy, girl, gay lesbian, fat, thin or suicidal, he looks up Rhiannon. Heady stuff.
He confronts Rhiannon and tells of his problem and boy does it open up an interesting can of worms. Another strand opens up when he is in Nathan’s body and that strand offers a possible way out or does it?
Highly original story and style of writing that puts the reader into A’s life. You will never read a book like this again.
Secondary and young adult in appeal. Yu will love it’s easy style. A real page turner.
