Thans for tuning in to another week of my self-imposed challenge to read one book per week this year. I'm tracking my progress on Goodreads, an awesome website that you should definitely check out, and maybe start your own reading challenge!
The only book I've ever read by David Levithan was Will Greyson, Will Greyson, which I truly loved. It was co-written by him and John Green, who is one of my favorite young adult authors of all time. I was excited to see how I enjoyed a novel written solely by Levithan and I'm happy to report that the answer is: very much.
Every Day is a book with a simple premise: the protagonist wakes up inside a new body every single morning. He then lives a borrowed life for 24 hours, trying not to change the course of his unwitting host's life before he moves on. The book doesn't delve to deep into the logic or physics of this unique concept, focussing instead on the challenges unique to a person who never truly has a place to call home.
I thought Levithan told an amazing story about how physicality affects the perception of personality. We define people so much by their outward attributes, it's a one-of-a-kind experience to delve into the life of someone who doesn't define themselves by their height, weight, gender, or any other physical attribute. Highly recommended.
