Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
This was another read-in-one-sitting book for me.
While this book raised a lot of questions for me (what happens when A dies? how was he born? where is his own body?), I still loved the book. I think David Levithan is amazingly gifted with his characterization skills because the main character of this book, A, never has a definite body. His (her?) gender, hair color, eyes, height, everything changes on a daily basis. However, he is still able to create a character that is singular in its personality and voice and I think that is amazing. Not to mention the 40 different worlds and characters he created for A to "possess" for one day. For that alone it deserves five stars.
I also enjoyed the very unique perspective this book gave. Because of the way it was told, the romance between A and Rhiannon was extremely interesting. Just from reading the synopsis, I was hooked. I wanted to know how such a relationship was possible and how David would be able to pull it off.
All in all, I thought the novel was one-of-a-kind and very memorable.
