“I am a drifter, and as lonely as that can be, it is also remarkably freeing. I will never define myself in terms of anyone else. I will never feel the pressure of peers or the burden of parental expectation. I can view everyone as pieces of a whole, and focus on the whole, not the pieces. I have learned to observe, far better than most people observe. I am not blinded by the past or motivated by the future. I focus on the present because that is where I am destined to live.”
A doesn’t have a normal life. Every morning he wakes up in someone else’s body. It doesn’t matter whose body. It can be a male, female, transgender, agender, etc. It doesn’t matter. A has lived his entire life like this. And it appeared like he would live that way for the rest of his life. Except something changes.
Rhiannon appears into A’s life in quite a peculiar way. Suddenly, A’s perspective changes. He gets tired of having to change every day when he wants to spend every day with Rhiannon. But he can’t. Or can he? *suspense*
What a great book to start out my 2015 reading year! I actually read Every Day pretty fast. I loved David Levithan’s writing. I have such a huge respect for authors who use diverse characters. Every Day is emotional, suspenseful, and heartwarming all at the same time. It is one of those books that you will devour and want more.
I can’t wait to read more of David Levithan’s books because I have fallen in love with his writing style.
See you in my next post!
