Nobody Meets Somebody

Every Day by David Levithan
reviewed by Joanne

Every Day is about a being named A.  A is neither female nor male, brunette nor blond, fat nor skinny because A has no body. The only life A has known is the lives of others. A wakes up in a new body every day and lives the person's life for that day only. But one day A meets a girl named Rhiannon and realizes he/she doesn't want to forget about her.

David Levithan has written a book with a plot that is like nothing ever written before. I really enjoyed reading this book and the main character was just great. The reader automatically sympathizes with and understands A throughout the whole book. This is a romance-based story so it would probably appeal more to teen girls but a great thing about the story is that it has examples of all different kinds of relationships. The only disappointing thing about the book is that it lacks descriptive wording in its passages, although this does give the reader room to imagine things as they see it. Every Day is a book that should definitely be on your reading list.
