Did you ever wonder how life would be if you were somebody else? Well in Every Day by David Levithan, a human soul named A wakes up in a different person's body every single day. A has done this since the day it was born. However, one day, A falls in love with a girl named Rhiannon. A feels love it has never felt before, and it wants to spend the rest of its life with her. However, asides from the fact that she has a boyfriend, A cannot stay in one person's body. Can Rhiannon still love A even though he changes every day?
In my opinion, the best aspect of this book wasn't the romance. In Every Day, A lives inside a different person's body every single day. It goes only into bodies of people its age (16), but A lives in many people. Because of this, the reader gets to see and better understand the positions of other people's lives. They get a better perspective on the realities and truths of men, women, depression, race, ethnicity, homosexuality, and mental disabilities. One can learn to appreciate and accept these people more after reading Every Day by David Levithan.
A great, original plot, combined with a deeper message creates Every Day by David Levithan, an amazing book that is definitely worth reading.
