What a concept. Every day you wake up in someone else’s body the same age as you. You are you, but you must act like your ‘host’. Luckily you can access the memories of the person whose body you are inhabiting. What do you think of yourself as? A boy? A girl? An it? This has been A’s life for all his/her/its 16 years and he has gotten used to it. No family. No relationships. No ties. Well all that changed the minute, the second he saw Rhiannon. He knew she was the one…the one he wanted for more than 24 hours. But how do you explain your 24-hour life cycle to someone who can’t possibly understand it? How can you convince a ‘normal’ person that the relationship potential is there?
This is the concept of every day by david levithan. This is not a para-normal romance, thank goodness. It’s a book that makes you think about life, love, romance. Along the way A inhabits the bodies of kids who have drunk too much, who are depressed, who are heterosexuals, homosexuals, geeks, cool. It makes you think about sacrifice and the impact one decision can make.
If you are a guest in someone’s body for one day, would you attempt to change him/her or would you try to leave the person just as you found them? For a fun read with some thought provoking situations, read every day by david levithan.
