Another day – David Levithan


This is not a continuation of Every Day, nor is it a companion. According to the author, David Levithan, it is a twin. It shares parentage and is similar to Every Day but has its own identity. It is also possible to read the book without having Every Day at all.

And I liked it! I enjoyed getting to know Rhiannon and her character development is solid. She goes from being a young woman in the shadows of her sometimes not very nice boyfriend to a young woman with better self esteem and a better understanding of what she wants. We follow Rhiannon while she struggles with what she is going through with A, her developing feelings for this thing? person? soul?. Also I feel pretty sure that this isn´t the last time we´ll meet Rhiannon and A…

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.
