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.

A always occupies the bodies of people the same age (sixteen, now), and rarely travels outside the mid-Atlantic region.
