Alright, I had to gather my thoughts after reading Every Day by David Levithan because as I was reading it I kept on thinking I don't like A.  The only interesting thing about A is that he "jumps" into different people and live their lives for 24 hrs before he jumps into a different person.  I was slightly bothered by A, seriously what is he/she...a poof of air.  I'm not seeing relationship material, just saying.  A's love interest Rhiannon puzzled me, as well.  I saw nothing great about her that would warrant A loving her, especially after one day.  I was confused when I finished Every Day because though I didn't like A and Rhiannon, I loved everything else about Every Day.  

Every Day is more about the supporting cast than A for me.  I immersed myself in the people A was for the day.  I was excited reading about them and what kind of people they were, what their lives were like.  Those individual stories is what kept me reading.  Life was told through them, every day life.  The ups and down of being a teenage boy or girl from relationships to depression.
