Every Day by David Levithan

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

A wakes up every day not knowing who A will be that day.  Boy or girl, fat or skinny-every day it is a different.  One morning A wakes up as Justin-a careless teen, and meets Justin's girlfriend Rhiannon. Justin does not treat Rhiannon well and A picks up on this immediately.  A always tries to live each day in the person as normally as possible.  But after meeting Rhiannon things change.  A falls for her and wants to spend every day with her-but is it possible?

I enjoyed reading about whose body A would inhabit for the day.  A woke up being everything from a brainiac to a drug addict, it was interesting to see what A decided to do with the bodies each day.  As A falls deeper for Rhiannon he begins to do things to the bodies he inhabits that in the long affects A and the bodies.

Heartwarming the book will definitely stay with you for some time and you will feel for both A and Rhiannon.

Enjoy this video of YA authors reading from the book.
