Another DayeBook - 2015
The eagerly anticipated companion novel to the New York Times bestseller Every Day. Bestselling author David Levithan (co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) tells Rhiannon's side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about 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. She's even established guidelines by which to live: Don't be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up. But one morning everything changes. Justin wants 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 great day, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Until 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. David Levithan is an award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author of young adult books, including Every Day, How They Met, Two Boys Kissing, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green). He lives in New Jersey and spends his days in New York, editing and publishing other people's books. 'Levithan is fearless in his writing and absolutely assumes that the teenagers he writes for can comprehend, enjoy and relate to complicated, full and enveloping emotions, and this unflinching faith in his readership has once again led him to write another contemporary classic.' Readings 'Every bit as compelling as its companion...With his characters feeling everything from depression, confusion, desperation, anger and a fair amount of teenage angst right through to joy, and elation in the end David Levithan leaves them, and us, with hope.' Salty Popcorn 'Levithan's self-conscious, analytical style marries perfectly with the plot. His musings on love, longing and human nature knit seamlessly with A's journey. Readers will devour his trademark poetic wordplay and cadences that feel as fresh as they were when he wrote Boy Meets Boy (2003). An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender.' Kirkus Reviews on Every Day.
