David Levithan’s novel, Every Day, is an astounding novel. It describes true love and sacrifice between the relationship of the protagonists, A and Rhiannon. A does not have a body of his own; He switches everyday into a new one. He meets Rhiannon when he is in her boyfriend – Justin’s – body. He suddenly falls in love with Rhiannon, but how do you explain to someone that you inhabit a different person each day? A keeps meeting her as someone else, but she has no idea it is him. When A feels he can really trust her he tells her about his life and that this is how it has always been. One boy, named Nathan which A inhabited, thinks that he has been possessed by the devil and questions him through emails and has now become a problem for A. A must find a way to take care of Nathan and find a way to make Rhiannon happy with the idea of being able to love him.
Every Day showed love and all the different perspectives of life and people. For instance, A becomes a homeschooled boy for one day but then the next he is a popular girl living the life of luxury. Levithan used uncomplicated language to portray the characters and to describe the plot. Levithan wrote a book that leaves you wondering about how you look at the world and how you should look at it. Anyone who enjoys reading about supernatural occurrences, love, and adventure will certainly like this book. Elizabeth B.; Teen Reviewer
