Waiting on Wednesday: Every Day

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Amazon:

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

Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. 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.

With his new novel, David Levithan 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.


Every Day by David Levithan will be released by Knopf Books for Young Readers on August 28, 2012.

Hello, my name is Melanie, and I am a David Levithan fangirl. I think Levithan is brilliant. However, I have to confess, I really prefer his contemps to some of his more experimental, concepty stories. There are cases, though, where his experiments turn out to be extra successful–The Lover’s Dictionary, for example. I will try everything Levithan writes because I know that when his books work for me, they become some of my all-time favorites.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • As you say, I am sometimes turned off by ‘concepty’ stories. I think this one could go either way. Really interesting, though! Nice pick.

  • Great pick, Melanie! Every Day has been on my Wish List for a while, and I was fortunate enough to receive an eGalley last week. I can’t wait to dive in. Levithan is a master story-teller 🙂
