Entertainment Weekly, August 22, 2012:
"Rich in wisdom and wit...Levithan keeps the pages turning not only with ingenious twists on his central conceit but with A's hard-earned pieces of wisdom about identity, isolation, and love. Every Day has the power to teach a bully empathy by answering an essential question: What's it like to be you and not me -- even if it's just for one day?" New York Times Book Review, August 26, 2012:
"It demonstrates Levithan's talent for empathy, which is paired in the best parts of the book with a persuasive optimism about the odds for happiness and for true love." Los Angeles Times, September 2, 2012:
"It's the rare book that challenges gender presumptions in a way that's as entertaining as it is unexpected and, perhaps most important, that's relatable to teens who may not think they need sensitivity training when it comes to sexual orientation and the nature of true love. 'Every Day' is precisely such a book...A story that is always alluring, oftentimes humorous and much like love itself -- splendorous." MTV Hollywood Crush, September 28, 2012:
"Thoughtful and fascinating...A study in the most real and human of concerns: the importance of empathy, the value of friends and family, and the beauty of permanence that we have the luxury of taking for granted." Boston Globe, September 15, 2012:
"Ambitious and provocative...we're not ready to let A go." OUT Magazine, December 2012:
"One of the most inventive young adult novels of the year." Romantic Times, October 2012:
"Levithan is a literary genius. His style of writing is brilliant -- practically flawless... Reading A's journey to make love last, in a world that is always changing, is an experience I hope everyone gets to share."
Starred Review, School Library Journal, September 2012:
"Every step of the narrative feels real and will elicit a strong emotional response from readers and offer them plenty of fodder for speculation, especially regarding the nature of love." Starred Review, Booklist, July 1, 2012:
"Levithan has created an irresistible premise that is sure to captivate readers....
[Every Day] is a study in style, an exercise in imagination, and an opportunity for readers themselves to occupy another life: that of A, himself." Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 15, 2012:
"An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender." Starred Review, Shelf Awareness, September 7, 2012:
"Levithan's unusual love story will make teens think about how the core of the soul never changes. A speaks of faith, love, dreams and death with a wisdom derived from thousands of lives visited over 16 years and firsthand proof of how much humans share rather than what sets them apart." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, September 2012:
"This unconventional romance considers some fascinating and unexpected questions about the nature of identity, consciousness, love, and gender...Readers will identify with A's profound longing for connection, but they'll also be intrigued by the butterfly effect A's presence may have on numerous other teens who make brief but memorable appearances." The Horn Book, November 2012:
"Brilliantly conceived...[Levithan] shapes the narrative into a profound exploration of what it means to love someone." Letter Blocks, the BN Parents & Educators blog, August 23, 2012:
"A definite crowd-pleaser." The L Magazine, August 29, 2012:
"The premise allows for stimulating parallels: A's experience is both like the writer's, who inhabits the consciousnesses of random characters, and the adolescent's, who tries on myriad identities."

Throughout the book Levithan does an outstanding job at describing each person A (the main character) inhabits, giving each character a story, a humane level of respect, the benefit of the doubt even.
Everyone, except Finn.
With Finn, the author immediately tosses us into a world of self-loathing based entirely on A's assumption that being obese is the reason for self-loathing. Instead of looking at obesity as a symptom of deeper issues both mental and physical, A, cannot see beyond Finn's body to assess how it all happened - leaving us to once again, assume that all fat people got there through their own choices and nothing else. At one point A even equates Finn's emotions to a burp and describes that he/she COULD look deeper into Finn and find there some level of humanity. But he/she never tried. Instead, A couldn't get out of Finn's body soon enough - leaving Finn with no vote of confidence, and not even the decency of telling us his story.
If Levithan had done the same for the gay, trans, black, Asian etc. stories in his book, there would have been an uproar of condemnation. But it's still okay to pick on the fat kid - and I am disappointed that a character who has no body of his/her own, is still passing judgment on the body of another who did not ask to be inhabited, and certainly did not ask to be inhabited and judged.
It appears that to A (and Levithan) being fat is so far worse than being a creeper who jumps from body to body with no physical body of his/her own. It's amusing to me that A can argue his/her own value to Rhiannon, but not see Finn's value as a human being.
Considering that so many kids and adults have eating disorders and body-shame issues that lead to all sorts of destructive patterns - this chapter should have been carefully examined. I am surprised that editors and family let him get away with this.
The best I can hope for is that A ends up in the body of Finn again, where he/she has to finally learn to love himself. Then, and only then, will Finn have a chance to be truly seen and understood.
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.
Don't get me wrong, this was a very promising book. The very beginning of this book, about the first chapter, reel the reader into the story because, at first, the characters are funny and do have some personality. But then it falls. Really, REALLY hard. It seemed like the longer I went on, the worse and more annoying the characters got. There were, however, times where I was intrigued and interested in the story. But then it just crumbles because I'm left wondering....why was that needed?
There are many things in this book that don't go anywhere, or are promised to be explained but never are. This, for a reader, is very frustrating. I know that there are certain things the author would like to be left to the reader's imagination, but in this book it comes off as trying to be clever, but really isn't.
But it's not up to me to decide whether or not you'll read this book. This is merely a warning of the frustration you are bound to experience.
Or not. Maybe you'll actually like the book. I didn't. But it's up to you.
There are few books that I have given up entire nights of sleep for, and even fewer still that have caused me to lie awake for hours afterwards in contemplation. The sheer lyrical prose of this book is breathtaking, truly. There were many times where I found myself quietly gasping aloud at the beauty of the words, at the stunning portrayal of a character filled to the brim with utter humanity despite not quite being human, but being EVERY human at the same time.
