Title: Six Earlier Days
Author: David Levithan
Year Published: 2013

Synopsis: In Every Day, New York Times bestselling author David Levithan presented readers with his most ambitious novel to date: Every morning, A wakes up in a different body and leads a different life. A must never get too attached, must never be noticed, must never interfere. 

The novel Every Day starts on Day 5994 of A’s life. In this digital-only collection Six Earlier Days, Levithan gives readers a glimpse at a handful of the other 5993 stories yet to be told that inform how A navigates the complexities of a life lived anew each day. 

In Every Day, readers discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day. In Six Earlier Days, readers will discover a little bit more about how A became that someone.

Review: I absolutely LOVED Every Day. This collection of a few chapters shows more of that world. It's a really cool way to have a short stories collection because each chapter could be absolutely anything. A could wake up as any gender, sexual orientation, race, etc. And, Levithan picked random days throughout A's life so add age to that list. Levithan did an excellent job of telling stories of just one day in someone's life. The stories aren't quite as powerful as the book, but this is definitely a fun read for any fan of Every Day. I give this collection a 4/5.
