Book Review: Every Day

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

The author name seemed familiar to me and after going through my mind, trying to remember back, I found out that David Levithan is the author that collaborate with John Green on a book entitled Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I really love that book because the story is about 2 different people with 2 different perspectives and views, but having the same name. 

I found Every Day in Popular when I was hanging out with my housemates. First thing first, I read the synopsis behind the book. 

"I wake up. 

Immediately I have to figure out who I am. It's not just the body - opening my eyes and discovering whether the skin on my arm is light or dark, whether my hair is long or short, whether I'm fat or thin, boy or girl, scarred or smooth. The body is the easiest thing to adjust to, if you're used to waking up in a new one each morning. It's the life, the context of the body, that can be hard to grasp. 

Every day I am someone else. I am myself - I know I am myself -- but I am also someone else.

It has always been like this." 


This book is really different from those I'd read in the past. The abundance of literature that can be easily gotten makes it's kinda hard to find a unique story plot that hasn't been written. To get this kind of idea makes me salute David Levithan, though I was a lil bit frustrated the moment I closed this book as I believe there must be a sequel to this book. Hope I won't forget how the storyline is when I buy the sequel later. 

A story of a boy who lives in different body every day, but could do nothing about it is something new that I've never read before. Every day he is a different person, with different life, different family, different parents, different perspective and of course different experience. 

Despite it left me hanging and feeling eager to know what happens next, it also taught me that every person has his/her own life and problem. Everything might look okay from the outside, but no one knows about the heart that shatters inside and the mind that has a thousand of things to be thought. Appreciate with what we have especially our family members as there are people out there who are lack of family love as a result of certain circumstances. And always be nice to others as we never know what they have gone through.
