Title: Every Day
Genre: YA Fantasy, Romance
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Date Published: August 28, 2012
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.
I don't even know how to put into words how I feel about this book. It's like nothing I've ever read, but also like so many YA romances I've read.
While reading, I had to take a break to discuss it with a friend of mine, just so we could talk abotu what one would do in A's situation. I had to put it down many times just to think about what was going on and really let it sink in.
Part of me feels sorry for A. Not having any sense of stability is one of the worst things for me. Never knowing where I'll be tomorrow... or even who I'll be... I'd hate that.
This book really made me think. It's such a different concept, and there's much I'd wish had been explored. There's so many options, and I can literally spend hours just thinking about it.
One thing that kinda frustrated me was during the discussion with my friend, he had come up with something and said A would be wasting their abilities if they didn't do a certain thing. Which happened to be exactly what happened. I wish he'd have actually read the book before saying this, so I could have smacked him for spoilers.
Anyway, I noticed there is a companion book available at my library. I'm going to put a hold on it so I can read it soon.
