The summer is upon us and I have done some reading. I recently finished David Levithan's Every Day. I don't talk about books very often (mainly because I don't have the time to read them), but I have a soft spot in my heart for David Levithan. He's an amazing young adult author.
Don't cringe at the words young adult. I spent the better part of my middle school and high school years avoiding young adult works. Now it's all I read besides Jackie Collins and smut. David Levithan has written with John Green. That probably means more to you then me. John Green is great and all, but he just kind of exists to me.
My favorite book by him is Two Boys Kissing. This novel is very real and honest and if you want to understand the gay experience I think this is a good book to pick up. It's well written, timely, and moving. I had to put this book down a few times I cried so much.
Now, the only reason I even read this particular David Levithan book Every Day is because Miss Sara Bellum let me borrow it. To be honest I hope she doesn't read this and remind me that I have to give this book back, but that is the trial of my life.
The main character's name is A and the girl that this entity is in love with is Rhiannon. A does everything possible to be with her and talk to her and be a part of her life. The tragedy is that it's impossible for A to be there for her every day.
I don't want to give too much away other then to say you should read it. That it's a fascinating read and was one of the highlights of my breaks at work. If you need something to read over the summer I highly recommend checking out David Levithan's back catalog.
