A New York Times Bestseller

A girl falls in love with someone who wakes up in a different body each morning in this enthralling and poignant follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Every Day .

David Levithan (co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) turns his New York Times bestseller Every Day on its head by flipping perspectives in this exploration of 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.

And don't miss the Every Day major motion picture - coming soon!

PRAISE FOR ANOTHER DAY :

"It's a tricky concept, but in Levithan's hands it works." --EW.com

"[A] richly developed story that takes readers deep into its co-protagonists' beings. . . . Though Levithan considers this to be the earlier novel's 'twin,' it has a separate, deeply satisfying identity and can be read on its own." -- Booklist , Starred

PRAISE FOR EVERY DAY :

"A story that is always alluring, oftentimes humorous and much like love itself--splendorous." --Los Angeles Times

I rather enjoyed this book when I didn't think I was going to. I adored the first one and was very skeptical about reading this story from Rhiannon's side. However, I gave it an honest try and the story affected me just as much as it did the first time. It was beautiful and I enjoyed watching Rhiannon grow into her own person alongside A and see the whole situation from her point of view.

The only thing that troubled me was the ending. It left it open for there to be more to the story and that is where I would be upset. Because one of the beautiful things about this particular story was its ending. And that's why I was okay with there being a "second" book because it wasn't a sequel. It was a companion. But if Levithan continues this story...I won't be as interested because I like to think that how it ended in "Every Day" was how it should have ended.

I'm echoing what most people have said about Another Day. Levithan's writing is great as usual, but the same story from an alternate perspective wasn't necessary (although if this one came first before Every Day, reviews might be different).

This book was good but not as great as The first book in the series. I just did not find Rhiannon story as interesting as A's story. When she was dealing Him/her it was the best parts of the book. The parts when she was on her own and dealing with the Justin drama did not interest me as much. This book could be read as a stand alone novel but I think it would be better appreciated if you have read the first book.

I read this without first reading "Every Day" and found that it was a thoroughly compelling read on its own. The description of Rhiannon's relationship with Justin told thru her eyes rang so very true that I imagine this book could be a great intro to discussing abusive relationships with teens, or anyone else for that matter.

"Another Day" is the sequel to David Levithan's book "Every Day," following the same story from Rhiannon's point of view this time. This book was a great companion to "Every Day" -- it gave the perfect background to what Rhiannon was thinking during this whole period of time and what she was going through with Justin, her boyfriend.

This book talks about some really "real" stuff for young adult readers, just like "Every Day" did. Rhiannon is in an extremely emotionally abusive relationship with Justin. She is constantly walking on eggshells and anticipating his anger at most things she does. You are left cheering for A to win her over, knowing even if they are in such a weird situation, at least she won't be with Justin anymore.

If you read "Every Day," you'd be missing out on most of the story if you don't read this one.

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest review
