Fresh, unique, and intriguing, Every Day tells the story of gender-less, body-less A, who wakes up as a different person every day. A has long since resigned himself to the idea of impermanence, until he falls in love with a girl named Rhiannon while in the body of her boyfriend. Suddenly, A's ephemeral snippets of life and unpredictability seem like a punishment, and A does everything possible to counter the inevitable course of fate so as to be with Rhiannon. A's story is insightful and thought-provoking, in that A's veritable kindness shines through no matter what the outer body looks like. Also, Levithan brings a whole new dimension to the idea of sympathy as A travels from the body of a 300-pound boy to a suicidal girl, from that of a blind person to that of a boy attending his grandfather's funeral. As A moves from day to day, thinking of Rhiannon and dreaming of a permanent existence, Levithan teaches readers about the need to appreciate what there is today for fear that it will be gone tomorrow, about the importance of living in the now, and about the necessity to sometimes accept a person as he or she is, in any shape or form. Definitely a five-star read!
