Every Day

by David Leviathan

Imagine every morning you woke up as someone else. You had no idea where you were, you could be a boy or girl, in any city in the world. A's never known anything else. Every day A wakes up as someone different. A's learned to cope, causing as little disruption to the lives of everyone A has been for a day.  But one day A wakes up as Justin, and meets Justin's girlfriend Rhiannon. In Rhiannon A has found the only person A has ever had a connection to. And when the day is over, and A wakes up in a new body the next day, A suddenly realizes that nothing will be the same unless A can get back to her.

One of the most interesting parts of this book was the lack of gender identity for A. A is both both and girl, changing from day to day at the drop of a hat. A's love for Rhiannon is both simple and poignant. A had come to terms with life alone, but meeting the one person that they might be able to love sets in motion a path that A could not have imagined. It's a well written book, a love story but one with a poignant end.
