Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

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.

He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.
“A story that is always alluring, oftentimes humorous and much like love itself— splendorous.” —Los Angeles Times
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Imagine waking up as someone different every day. We inhaled David Levithan’s sucker punch of a novel that riffs off this premise. Every morning, A awakes as someone new: from a nerdy student battling her older brother to a devoted son helping his single-parent family stay afloat. One morning A gets up in the body of no-hoper Justin, meets his girlfriend Rhiannon, and falls head over heels. With its small, perfectly drawn stories of the lives A inhabits, Every Day is a beautiful love story and a thought-provoking exploration of identity.
Imagine waking up every morning in a different body, with a different personality, and a different life. This is reality for A, who experiences a new beginning every day of his life. And while A has come to accept this fate, when he awakens to meet the woman of his dreams, he decides he must find a way to break the cycle. Leviathan's entertaining and imaginative novel comes to life in this inspired reading by Alex McKenna. Despite the fact that A is a male, the female McKenna brilliantly captures the character, adding nuance and depth. The narrator's delivery is confident, emotive, and captivating at times it sounds as if she is reading from her own diary. The result is truly memorable listening. Ages 12 up. A Knopf hardcover.
Ok but some would’ve benefited from a sensitivity reader...
As a fat trans person two chapters really made me want to stop reading. The transphobic way they refer to Vic’s body as “female biologically living as male gendered” is a very insensitive wrong way to phrase “Vic is a trans man”. Author should have hired a trans editor honestly... like I was baffled...
Then the chapter about the larger fat character soon after was rampant with fat phobia. Like that was the entire chapter... it was upsetting.
There are some spots like this but those two instances bothered me the most.
Overall though the book was easy to get through and was very easy to get caught up in.
I'm not a big reader what so ever, but I can honestly say I could not put this book down I loved it!!
What can I say
True love without the fairytale ending. I don't if I can really put into words what I just read I just know it was very interesting , touching, mind bending... It could only end one way and it did. One of the rare books that's left me at a loss of words.
