Paul's October Book: Every Day by David Levithan (Pre Reading)
Title: Every Day
Author: David Levithan
Year Published: 2012
Amazon | 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.
Why?: The idea of this book is so interesting. An entity that has no gender, identity, or anything at all, not even a name. I have only read books in which David Levithan is one of the contributing authors and I have enjoyed his writing.
Expectations: I expect a heart-wrenching story that deals with questions of identity and self. I have avoided any spoilers for this novel so I hope to just be amazed.
Judging a book by its cover: This cover is interesting. There is a girl and a boy in the clouds. The lines also make it feel like we are looking through a window. I like the vagueness of the cover.
