Every Day by David Levithan

"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."

So, I kinda fell in love with this book. The concept of it was so completely new and original that I got hooked in right away and was curious to see how it would work. I got completely engrossed and ended up finishing it in about 12 hours. I liked that the story got going right away; It let me learn a lot about A and his situation, but didn't have that boring informational session at the beginning. You got to know his story over the course of the book and it did a good job of explaining everything. It managed to be a romance story that ended up true to the real world--not in a disappointing way, just a thoughtful way. I honestly couldn't love this book more, and ended up recommending it to a couple of my friends. Seriously, whoever you are, you really should read this book. It's at Kettleson, so what are you waiting for?
