four-stars
Summary (from Goodreads):

Every day a new body. Every day a new life. Every day a new choice.

For as long as A can remember, life has meant waking up in a different person's body every day, forced to live as that person until the day ended. A always thought there wasn't anyone else who had a life like this.

But A was wrong. There are others.

A has already been wrestling with powerful feelings of love and loneliness. Now comes an understanding of the extremes that love and loneliness can lead to -- and what it's like to discover that you are not alone in the world.

In Someday, David Levithan takes readers further into the lives of A, Rhiannon, Nathan, and the person they may think they know as Reverend Poole, exploring more deeply the questions at the core of Every Day and Another Day What is a soul? And what makes us human?

Review

Someday by David Levithan is such a gift to fans of the first two books in the series. This third book in the Every Day series takes the story into a new direction and digs deeper into what it means to be human. The characters are interesting and the political aspects that are woven into the plot give the series an updated point of view.

One of the most intriguing parts of the entire Every Day series is the way in which the character known as A inhabits another person’s body each day. Someday continues to explore how difficult it is for A to not have a life that is completely their own. It is really enlightening to read more about A and think about what makes us human.

Review

The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily is a really disappointing sequel to Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. This companion novel has far less adventure in and Lily’s character in The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily is so negative. The constant negativity doesn’t make the book seem Christmassy at all.
