A has no friends. No parents. No family. No possessions. No home, even. Because every day, A wakes up in the body of a different person. A is able to access each person's memory, enough to be able to get through the day without parents, friends, and teachers realizing this is not their child, not their friend, not their student. Because it isn't. It's A. It's a lonely existence--until, one day, it isn't. A meets a girl named Rhiannon. And A falls for her after a perfect day together. But when night falls, it's over. Because A can never be the same person twice. But yet, A can't stop thinking about Rhiannon. She becomes A's reason for existing. So every day, in different bodies--of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and walks of life--A tries to get back to her and convince her of their love. But can their love transcend such an obstacle? Fans of David Levithan's books, from Boy Meets Boy to Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohn, to Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green, will not want to miss this wholly unique love story.

Towards the end of the book the author threw in a random curveball that A might be able to inhabit a body for longer than one day, but I feel like this part of the story was rushed and lacked clarity and purpose. It was like “Here’s a really interesting plot twist! Actually never mind” and then the book wrapped up surprisingly quickly leaving a sort of unfinished feel to some of the plot. It was kind of like you’d spent the entire book following along as A fell in love with Rhiannon, pined over Rhiannon, spent every waking minute longing for her and wanting to do anything to be with her. And then A decided it wouldn’t work and then he left her. Not exactly the ending I was looking for. But I suppose in a way A’s sacrifice is meant to be romantic? Overall there were definitely parts of this plot that I found frustrating, but at the same time it kept me reading because I wanted to know how it ended, and the ending was kind of disappointing.
The most glaring fact is that, being A, there is no chance for a regular relationship. Each day the body changes, so Rhiannon is firstly stumped by seeing a new person everyday. She has it hard, in the way that she has to look for A every time, see beneath the skin, into the soul. She is also heterosexual, which makes it slightly weird for her whenever A is female, but she still goes along with it. It’s a meeting of souls, but a relationship between them – especially a physical one is complicated. And each time the body is also a matter, however you look at it. Love is part affection and part attraction – and every time the new body is something Rhiannon has to get used to, forget being attracted to. It’s lucky that A’s soul is transferred around the same state, because being shuffled around the world would have made it impossible. Even with A’s virtual life as an e-mail account, which is the only way A can keep in touch, there is still the question of him never being able to be there for her, never being able to stay. There is another person, Nathan, who A had once occupied and was left with remnant memories of the occupation. The background as to what A is, isn’t even hinted at until nearly the end of the book – but that suspense wasn’t the only thing driving the book. It was the beauty of A’s existence and also the pain of it – the ability to live such myriad lives and yet never truly be a part of it. It was heart-breaking, I tell you, and I cried at times. This book left me broken down, crying at the end, which is too painful and also very spoiler-y. But man, such beautiful lines in this book – I would have read it faster if I hadn’t stopped and shared every beautiful quote on Tumblr. Basically, what I am saying is – go read this book!
I honestly didn’t think I was going to love it as much as I did. Now I am anxiously waiting until I can get the Another day.
The deep emotions, the character developments, the story plot, everything was more than I through would be.
