Synopsis: In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan (co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.

Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person . . . wasn’t Justin at all. 


Why?: David Levithan is one of my favorite authors. He has an excellent voice that captures growing up and the complicated emotions associated with that universal experience. I absolutely loved Every Day. This book is written from Rhiannon's perspective so I am very intrigued. 

Expectations: Since this book is not from A's perspective, the sci-fi element of waking up in a new body and a new life every day won't be as present. But, we will get to see what it is like from the other point of view. How does Rhiannon react when her boyfriend is different for one day and then days later someone claims to be that same person. What makes her believe?

Judging a book by its cover: The cover is very similar to the Every Day cover with the added focus on the girl standing on the ground. Rhiannon is grounded. She has a steady linear life. But someone is falling from the sky into her world.
