Book Description

In his New York Times bestselling novel, David Levithan introduces readers to what Entertainment Weekly calls a "wise, wildly unique" love story about A, a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life.
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 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.


My Thoughts

*Part 1- Non-spoilers

I went into this book having very high expectations and I don't know what to say. This is probably going to be one of the hardest reviews I'd ever have to right due to the fact that I've had mixed feelings for this book. I was very interested in the plot and I think that was what had drawn me to the book in the first place. A person that wakes up everyday in a different body, living a different life. So because of that, my expectations for this book was very high. *I'll refer to 'A' as a "he" because in the book, he does not consider himself woman or man because everyday he wakes up as someone different"*Everything from the writing style to the plot of the book was very well written, so I had very few cons with this book. The cons I did have was the extent of "A" and Rhiannon's romance. I felt that A was very obsessed with Rhiannon, which made me have my doubts about this book. It was as if on every page he was talking about how much he needed to see her. I understand that he loved her and he hasn't felt this way many times for other people, but it made him very annoying. I felt that he didn't need to see Rhiannon as much as he felt like he did. 

pg  41- I know I should be focusing on the matter at hand, but I can't help but think about Rhiannon. 

I know the book was suppose to be about him and Rhiannon and how he tries to be with her even though everyday he wakes up in a different body, a different gender, in a different home, but it's like he spent every waking moment thinking about Rhiannon. 

pg 48- "In a town that's about a 4 hour drive from where Rhiannon lives" 

pg 51- "In a town only an hour away from Rhiannon's"

And this continues for all the next chapters. I think the author should've spent less time on his love for Rhiannon (because I think we all know he's crazy about her). Besides, the romance, we also learn how he feels waking up in someone else's body each day. I loved how beautifully it was written , and the quotes in the story were fantastic. It makes you look differently at the world. It makes you appreciate the life you live because you are lucky. All in all, I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend this to everyone and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Part 2 - Spoiler-ish 

...Continued from the previous review. 

Another problem I had with this book was how 'A' didn't understand that Rhiannon would be uncomfortable with still seeing him when he wakes us as a girl sometimes. It's completely normal for him, but it's new to Rhiannon. She didn't feel right being with him when he was a girl, or when he was 'overweight', and A didn't understand that.
