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 listeners 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.

What a wonderful and unique find. This story of a person inhabiting a different body every day, goes way beyond the usual.
Truly an insightful treatise on society's perceptions of gender. Beautifully integrated into a fascinating story of all the different sixteen year olds that we meet as "A" moves into and out of each one.
The love story wore a bit thin for me, but clearly it was meant also as the underlying message of what it means to really know and love someone.
The narrator was a perfect choice with her gravelly voice and female tone sensibilities.
Any questions as to where A came from or how this condition occurred are passed over. The questions were never answered except briefly toward the end with the character of the pastor, which was a bit jarring to the story.
Intriguing as that was, the strength of this book lies with its powerful emotional message. Which, by the way, in light of recent violent events, resonates even more profoundly.
I loved every second of this book! great story and great narrator! if you love hearing stories about many different lives and get to know how it feels to be different, this book is perfect for you!
I loved it the story was amazing and captivating and left me in tears. I also absolutely loved Alex McKenna's performance. Her Rhiannon made me really fall in love with the character. Nothing sounded awkward or weird she did a really great job much better then the narrator for Another Day.
This unique story was engaging. I kept thinking about it through the days and wondering about how different life would be from this perspective.
I hesitated to buy this book for a few days. I had some credits stacking up, and I didn't want to lose them... So, I just gave it a shot. Anyway, it's a very good book! I like the narrator. There are some comments about her voice sounding raspy. I think it's fitting. "A" sounds neither boy or girl. It works. She tells the story well.
This is the second David Levithan book I have read and he is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. The idea of a being jumping from body to body every day was intriguing and the storyline was so well written. I also enjoyed how Leviathan clearly discussed A being non-binary. He seems to write the perspective of queer & LGBT+ individuals very well, going off the basis of this book and "Will Grayson, Will Graydon", a book he co-wrote with "The Fault in Our Stars" author, John Green. I highly recommend it to anyone .
Good voice for the type of content, young, somewhat gender ambiguous. The story is a sweet teenage story, but older listeners will enjoy as well.
