EVERY DAY by David Levithan

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.

First Few Lines:
I wake up. Immediately I have to figure out who I am, It's not just the body --- opening my eyes and discovering whether the skin on my arm is light or dark, whether my hair is long or short, whether I'm fat or thing, boy or girl, scarred or smooth. The body is the easiest thing to adjust to, if you're used to waking up in a new one each morning. It;s the life, the context of the body, that can be hard to grasp. Every day I am someone else. I am myself --- I know I am myself --- but I am someone else. It has always been like this.

Thoughts About The Book:
Every Day is book about a widly unique love that of a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life. It is a captivating story that will fascinates you as A and his love interest, Rhiannon, begin to comprehend the complexities of a life of a drifter, and to discover that one can love someone who is destined to change every day. It keeps you up your toes trying figure out how it would progress, and a heartbreaking one --- and it broke my heart several times. Other than the love story, it is about acceptance about individual's differences, and lives, and it shows how difficult it is to fight the demons - addictions & problems - people face, and struggle with every day. There some parts that were dragging for me but the plot twist got me hooked, and the ending just left wanting for more answers. But liked A had said, "There will always be more questions. Every answer leads to more questions. The only way to survive is to let some of them go."
