Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate listeners as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.

Book vs. Movie: Every Day

When I first learned that David Levithan’s book, Every Day, was going to be made into a movie, I was thrilled. The concept is so unique and the experiences that A, the main character, has waking up as someone new each and every day are eye-opening. The film, however, is quite disappointing and does not do the book justice.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person…wasn’t Justin at all.

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.

Review: Another Day by David Levithan

Another Day by David Levithan is such a breathtaking book that everyone should grace their shelves with. It has a bit of an eerie concept, but mixed in with a contemporary, making this book an extremely believable magical realism book! One of my favourite things about this book is how it is told in Rhiannon’s perspective instead of A’s like in book one. This really makes Another Day a thrilling companion to Every Day.
