A brilliant and unexpected love story from YA superstar David Levithan that asks can love conquer all?
Every day a different body.
Every day a different life.
Every day in love with the same girl.
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.
And then 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 A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
Can you love someone who is destined to change each day? YA superstar author David Levithan brings all his trademark insight to a novel that is edgy, romantic and page-turning. Every Day has a touch of the paranormal and a grounding in the real world.
‘Every Day is a wonder.’
‘Fresh, unique, funny and achingly honest…I didn’t just read this book—I inhaled it.’
‘Levithan’s self-conscious, analytical style marries perfectly with the plot. His musings on love, longing and human nature knit seamlessly with A’s journey. Readers will devour his trademark poetic wordplay and cadences that feel as fresh as they were when he wrote Boy Meets Boy (2003). An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender.’
‘An irresistible premise…Those familiar with Levithan’s earlier work will not be a bit surprised to learn that his latest is beautifully written…a study in style, an exercise in imagination, and an opportunity for readers themselves to occupy another life, that of A himself.’
‘Genius concept, brilliantly written. Every Day is David Levithan at his very best, and that is very, very good.’
‘Is it too unmanly to say that this breathless book made me cry? It is? OK, well then I’ll just say this book is terrific, and if you’ll excuse me, I have something in my eye.’
‘[A] literary gem.’
