Every Day

From David Levithan, (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, 2006) comes the captivating story of A (his only name) who has a secret. Every morning A wakes up in a different person's body. There's never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. The only unchanging facts are that he is always 16 and it is a different persona he "borrows" each day. It has always been this way for him, though he doesn't know why it should be. 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 he has found someone he wants to be with day in, day out, day after day.
