Another Day by David Levithan

Book synopsis(via Goodreads):

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.

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Random House Children's for the advanced reader copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.***

This insomniac's opinion: 

David Levithan is a fantastic, original author and I truly enjoyed Every Day, the precursor to this novel. This novel has impeccable writing and an incredibly unique premise just as each of his novels do. In this novel, Rhiannon meets a soul in the body of her boyfriend- a soul that just happens to inhabit a new body each and every day. Fascinating concept, right?

Unfortunately, there were areas of the novel that were just too out there to be believable and I didn't feel the spark between the main characters that one needs to feel in such an unusual love story. However, I think younger readers(the audience that this was intended for) would love this.

Worth staying up all night to read?

Not for me, but I imagine many young girls will do so!
