In this enthralling companion to his New York Times best seller Every Day, David Levithan (coauthor of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) tells Rhiannon's side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.
Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, and even established guidelines by which to live: Don't be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.
Then comes the morning when everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day - a perfect day Justin doesn't remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person...wasn't Justin at all.

I had to get this book, despite the negative review, just because I loved every day so much!I'm going to make this short and sweet because I'm typing on my phone, and I'm not very good at reviewing anyway...
Is this as good as "Every Day?"
Is it worth reading?
Yes! Only if you've read "every day."
This is essentially the same story shown through Rhiannon's eyes. This book isn't nearly as captivating as "Every Day," but it fills in some missing pieces. With this book, you get the whole story. Rhiannon and I have a love hate relationship. I hate how she jerks "A" around, but at the same time... I can understand why it's so hard to give herself to someone who is going to be someone different every day. Love is love. But attraction plays a big role in things whether we realize it or not.
The narrator did well most of the time. The only complaint I have is that sometimes she makes "A" seem like a robotic, empty, shell.
Almost as though I'm listening to Siri. This may not have bothered me or been apparent if I didn't listen to the first book.
Basically, it's a good book. If you're like me and loved every day, it's worth a read. You get to be inside the head of the person that "A" wanted to give It all up for. You get to see what happens when they're not together, and what's going through her head when they are.
Aaaaand that sums it up.
same story different perspective. while ok....not what I wanted or was expecting. hope the story actually continues in another book
Another Day lacked the freshness of Ever Day. Rhiannon in this book seemed whiney and trite. The details didn't match up with Every Day, even though it was the same story with two narrators.
I understand that some people like when one story is told from multiple perspectives. I am not one of those people.
