Review: Every Day



Meatloaf's "I would do anything for love -- but I won't do that" song finally makes sense.

A is a soul who wakes up in a different body every morning since he could remember. Boy or girl -- all aged 16 -- living within close proximity of each other. Although A has gotten used to distancing himself from the body, he can't help but fall in love with Rhiannon. It's the way she listens to him, her sweet side, the way she treats others that makes A want to be with her all the time. And so begins the quest, to use whoever's body to contact her. But when Rhiannon discovers the truth will she run toward A or away from him?

At first, the idea can either be seen as genius or extremely crazy. Not many authors would have been able to handle this rollercoaster of a story. Levithan not only wrote incredible love triangles, but tackled the themes of drug addiction, sibling rivalry, suicide and depression all at once. 

A must-read!
