Every Day (ebook)
by David Levithan
YA book… not recommended for kids.
Every Day was a strange one. I had no expectations other than it’s on all of the best books reading lists, so I gave it a try. A wakes up in a new body each day and assumes that person’s identity. A does not have his/her own body or family, and doesn’t know how this existence came to be. A does his/her best to live as that person, following the person’s schedule, until A falls in love with Rhiannon, the girlfriend of one of A’s people he/she inhabits. After that, A does what he/she can to see Rhiannon at the expense of the person A inhabits that day. Towards the end, it is revealed to A how he/she can stay in one body and be with Rhiannon.
What I liked about this book was seeing the different bodies A would end up in and what it was like to live those lives for one day. That is something we all wish we could do- live as someone else for a day. At least I do. Perhaps my favorite person was the girl who was severely depressed. It was interesting to see a different perspective.
What I didn’t like about the book was the end. It really annoyed me. I didn’t expect a happy ending, but I didn’t like the way it ended. It made me uncomfortable and confused. It seemed like there were a few pages missing, to be honest. I expected and wanted more. There is another book, but I’m not interested.
