Every Day off the shelf after hearing some good things. Even though it took me a few pages to get into it, I loved Every Day. Definitely in this year's top ten.
Every day, A wakes up in different body. This has been A's life since A was born. A has accepted this until A meets Rhiannon. A usually is able to leave each life and not look back but things with Rhiannon are different. A falls in love.
The premise sounds like it would be hard to get into but after the A wakes up in a few different bodies, I looked forward to seeing who A will be today. Sometimes A is male, sometimes female. A doesn't have a gender. I loved the diversity of the people A inhabited. Even more I loved how Levithan wrote about each of the people. Particularly the girl with the serious depression. How a black cloud hung around her. I think that was my favorite chapter. My second favorite was the chapter where A inhabits the body of a transgendered female. The details and the emotion that Levithan put into those two chapters was amazing. I savored the writing of Every Day. It's one I would love to read again.
I would highly recommend Every Day to anyone. The writing as well as the story was amazing. Others who shared their thoughts on Every Day: Pub Writes, The Perpetual Page Turner, My Overstuffed Bookshelf, My Friend Amy, and The Lost Entwife.
