Book Synopsis:
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
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.


I read a few pages back when I first bought the book but it didn't spark amy bond of me wanting to keep reading it at that time. I decided one night I would try again leaving me only 3 books I my shelf. It took me 6 hours to read the book, I got carried away and did a 5 hour non stop period which went by with no problem.

The book follows A, everyday A wakes up in a different body always of the same age 16. A wakes up as Justin and meets his girlfriend Rhiannon and he treats her well for a day but after that day Justin returns to his former self but A can't forget her. The days that follow, turning into weeks A returns to her trusting her enough to tell her everything and they form a bond that even though they can't ever be a solid pair or friends or any hug beyond that, they are both still the same inside but one just happens to change bodies every day.

What I love about the book is how it explores every 'kind' of person their is. Every person A becomes is different from one another, the way they treat people,  the colour of their skin, their beauty levels, their size. Each person provides A with experience. I fell in love with the relationship between A and Rhiannon and the trust they have in each other. I loved how it played out, how A became stronger and more confident in his choices.

I give this book a 5 out of 5 purely on how great it was, I didn't think it was going to bee all that good when I first got the book but I retract that statement it was a throughoughly great read and I recommend it to anyone who wants to explore life through the eyes of many people or just want a great read.
