Review'd: Every Day by David Levithan

Book Review:
Title: Every Day
Author: David Levithan
Published August 28th 2012, by Knopf Books for Young Readers

Goodreads Summary:
Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. 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 has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers 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

DeLibrarie Review: 
Wow. Just wow. I don't really know what I was expecting with this book. Ok I do know what I was expecting. I was expecting some paranormal romance where this kid is stuck in a different body everyday and falls in love with a girl and then they try to solve the mystery of getting him out of this daily torture and into his rightful body. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. This book was sooooo much more! David Levithan created such a deep, wise, honest character. A sees everything so clearly, not jaded by judgment. It is such a strong statement on the way that other people are viewed and the way that love works. I'm sure this book will stick with me for a while... it was just so powerful.
