About this Book

Reviews

A wakes up in a different body every single day. It's been that way for A's entire life. Recommended for young adults.

Remember that movie Groundhog Day? Remember how Bill Murray wakes up every single morning to discover that everything - from the date on the calendar to the song on the radio - is exactly the same? David Levithan's Every Day shares a similar thoughtful playfulness about the fantastical predicament its protagonist - known only as A - encounters, but otherwise, the challenges A faces are exactly the opposite. You see, every morning when A wakes up, the world - or at least A's little corner of it - is entirely new. A wakes up in a different body every single day. It's been that way for A's entire life. A always occupies the bodies of people the same age (sixteen, now), and rarely travels outside the mid-Atlantic region. But other than that, A could - and does - wake up each morning in the body of anyone: a marathon runner or a drug addict, a teenage mom or a morbidly obese boy.
