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.
