Synopsis:

The eagerly anticipated companion to David Levithan’s New York Times bestseller Every Day

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan (co-author 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, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning 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.

My review:

Another Day by David Levithan is the much-awaited companion novel to the 2012 release, Every Day. I was a huge fan of Every Day and was very thrilled when I found out about Another Day.

Written in the POV of Rhiannon, the love interest of A, Another Day is spot on in emotions and thoughts about love. There were moments when things were beautiful and heartbreaking all at once. The feels are very intense! The story’s profoundness generated thoughts I never imagined would cross my mind. Another Day enabled me to see how truly complicated A’s life is. Waking up in a different body every day sounds fascinating. However, it’s difficult to have that type of life because you don’t get to live normally—no permanent family, home, circle of friends, and even life itself. Change is the only constant thing in A’s life. Another Day will allow readers to appreciate the normal life they have.

David Levithan’s writing is brilliant! Reading Another Day felt like floating above the clouds. It’s so light and at the same time, relaxing. Plus, it’s too beautiful to stop reading just to take down notes!

In totality, Another Day is a pretty good book. Although the ending wasn’t what I expected, I still enjoyed the story.
