In his New York Times bestselling novel, David Levithan introduces readers to what Entertainment Weekly calls a “wise, wildly unique” love story about A, a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life.

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 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.

With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling coauthor of Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This unconventional romance considers some fascinating and unexpected questions about the nature of identity, consciousness, love, and gender…Readers will identify with A’s profound longing for connection, but they’ll also be intrigued by the butterfly effect A’s presence may have on numerous other teens who make brief but memorable appearances.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Brilliantly conceived…[Levithan] shapes the narrative into a profound exploration of what it means to love someone.”

    Horn Book

  • “Unique and incredibly compelling…While readers do not find out how or why A changes bodies, they will become invested in A’s story and hope that a solution for permanency, and happiness, can be found.”


  • “Levithan has created an irresistible premise that is sure to captivate readers…[Every Day] is a study in style, an exercise in imagination, and an opportunity for readers themselves to occupy another life: that of A, himself.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Rich in wisdom and wit…Levithan keeps the pages turning not only with ingenious twists on his central conceit but with A’s hard-earned pieces of wisdom about identity, isolation, and love. Every Day has the power to teach a bully empathy by answering an essential question: What’s it like to be you and not me—even if it’s just for one day?”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “It demonstrates Levithan’s talent for empathy, which is paired in the best parts of the book with a persuasive optimism about the odds for happiness and for true love.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “It’s the rare book that challenges gender presumptions in a way that’s as entertaining as it is unexpected and, perhaps most important, that’s relatable to teens who may not think they need sensitivity training when it comes to sexual orientation and the nature of true love. Every Day is precisely such a book…A story that is always alluring, oftentimes humorous, and much like love itself—splendorous.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Ambitious and provocative…We’re not ready to let A go.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Levithan is a literary genius. His style of writing is brilliant—practically flawless…Reading A’s journey to make love last, in a world that is always changing, is an experience I hope everyone gets to share.”

    Romantic Times

  • “Every step of the narrative feels real and will elicit a strong emotional response from readers and offer them plenty of fodder for speculation, especially regarding the nature of love.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Fresh, unique, funny, and achingly honest, Levithan brilliantly explores the adolescent conundrum of not feeling like oneself and not knowing where one belongs. I didn’t just read this book—I inhaled it.”

    Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author

  • “An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Levithan’s unusual love story will make teens think about how the core of the soul never changes. A speaks of faith, love, dreams, and death with a wisdom derived from thousands of lives visited over sixteen years and firsthand proof of how much humans share rather than what sets them apart.”

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Reizavi Cereno | 2/5/2014

    " there's alot of flaws in the story. Too many questions arises as I ran through the pages. But I saw this line in the book: "There will always be more questions. Every answer leads to more questions. The only way to survive is to let some of them go." Alright fine I'll just let go of my questions. Don't get me wrong, I like the plot itself. "

    " A 2.5 star rating would have been more accurate, but I rounded up. 3 stars for the interesting premise and page-turner story-telling. 2 stars for the voice of a 16-year old narrator not being very believable and some seeming inconsistencies that kept pulling me out of the story. "

    " This is one of the books that seems to be making its way around the YA circuit and I was really disappointed with it. I loved the concept of the story but did not like how it was actually done. First of all, the Twilight books got a bad reputation for being about an unhealthy teenage romance, but this book takes unhealthy teen romances to a whole new level. I was seriously creeped out. Next, I understood what I felt the author was trying to do through the main character about gender issues, but I felt like I was being lectured at times and I felt A to be a little bit intolerant at times. Then the central plot point that I found to be most interesting was not explained/resolved in the novel, so I was left feeling very disappointed in the end. Overall, I would not recommend this book, which is disappointing because I felt it was a really creative premise. "

    " Ugh. Fascinating premise reminiscent of Quantum Leap. The protagonist wakes up each day inhabiting the body of a different person. He has always been this way and doesn't know any different sort of life. He grew from childhood hopping in and out of the lives of people his own age. Just hearing this premise, I was fascinated, got the book from the library and read it right away. Unfortunately, it was not pulled off. The idea was not truly explored, the consequences never dealt with, explanations not given. Instead, there was emotional pablum and endless moralizing. I was very disappointed. "
