Everyday by David Levithan


Everyday crop 1

Every day I am someone else. I am myself – I know I am myself – but I am also someone else.

Everyday by David Levithan. With a simmering undertone of yearning this book highlights the lives we all lead behind the scenes, where imperfections are hidden from the rest of the world.

A mesmerising account of longing, loyalty and friendship that emphasises not only the weaknesses of humanity but also the overwhelming importance of our relationships with each other.

I try not to alter the lives I borrow for a day. But sometimes it can’t be helped.4 Star

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    — Extract from Goodreads.com
