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 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.

This book was great. I have to say, when i first started reading it, it reminded me of those stories i used to write that sounded so good when i first began writing them, but then things got too complicated and it just exploded in my face and shouted "fail" - I didn't think this book would work out. It was too hard of a concept to understand and write about but honestly, Davil Levithan worked it out and it's now one of my favourite books.

Firstly, it was a super awesome concept. The idea of waking up everyday in a new body - it was like having an awesome dream and thinking "I NEED TO WRITE THIS DOWN" - it was so awesome. I loved it and it just made me keep reading.

A few chapters in and i was hooked. The thing i particularly liked was how A tried to make a difference in this world by doing some good to the bodies he was in. It got me thinking - couldn't A actually change the world by doing this? If he helped every single person in some way?

The ending though really got me angry, upset, confused and basically a whole emotional wreck.
I CANNOT believe that A just LEFT Rhiannon like that. Seriously. And just when he disovered that there was a way to stay in the bodies ( but in a way it showed A's true personality. He just couldn't do that to the person he had inhabited. He couldn't take their life away for his advantage.

It was overall a successful, beautiful novel. I really enjoyed it and i'd definitely recommend it it to anyone. It's a different type of novel but it's wonderful, interesting and compelling.

This book was sincerely one of the best I have ever read. It had everything: a wonderfully unique plotline, brilliant characters that stay with you long after the cover has closed and dialouge I know some people would kill to write. I fell in love with one of the characters (not saying which) and hated others (you were supposed to). This is not a book for the faint-hearted: it is fast paced, with twists and turns and fabulous prose; you are constantly keeping up with the elaborate life of the protagonist and even the minor characters carry themselves - you can see them as individuals. Wonderful. One of the best. If not the best. Read it. Love it. Cry all over it. Dry it off. Read it again.

This book is amazing.

It made me think.

It made me sad. 

It made me feel a lot of emotions all at once. 

A very interesting idea.
