The Story
Every Day—Book Review

Every day A wakes up in a different body, and experiences his, or her, life. Always that of another sixteen-year-old, the same as his own chronological age, but never the same body twice. He knows he cannot form attachments, he only has a day in that particular life, but when A wakes up as Justin and falls in love with Justin's girlfriend Rhiannon, he does everything in his power to keep returning to her.
The Scoop
Every Day—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

Fascinating and thought provoking, Every Day is a truly unique concept story. Main character "A" (not specified female nor male) is without his own life, identity, and body. He experiences the lives and feelings of others, but every day is different. Some days he is a boy, some days a girl, some days heterosexual, some days homosexual, one day he even must endure a day in the life of an addict suffering crippling withdrawal symptoms. A wide variety of situations and experiences take place, as each character "A" inhabits has different issues--diabetes, suicidal thoughts, addiction, depression, obesity, and gender identity issues to name a few. Teen parties are attended, underage drinking takes place, as does pot smoking, and teen sex is referenced. Language is mild for a teen book (b-tch, cr-p, wh-re, h-ll). This story poses some interesting questions about true love, whether it is possible to love someone regardless of what shape they take, and about wisdom and selflessness. Extremely well written, older teens and adults alike will enjoy this compelling read.
