Read from July 02 to 06, 2012

What I loved: the premise ("A" wakes up every morning in a different 16 year old's body); the details (A has learned to access what is needed from these bodies to get through until midnight); the gender issues (we first meet A when occupying Justin's body, but half the time A wakes up in a girl's body); the obsessing about a relationship (it gets painful to witness). I liked not knowing why this happens to A or what A's past really is, but I still would have liked to have felt more about the character of A. A great book for guys, girls, teens, adults.

Robin I am really hoping there is a sequel to advance "A"s character.

Linda That would be great. I keep thinking about A. So maybe A is more fully developed than I realized at first. You know how some books get better the farther you get from them?

Robin I feel the same way about this book. The whole concept is stuck in my mind and still remains a puzzle. And, really, how can an author fully develop a character who is in a different body with different needs every day? I thought Levithan did a great job under those constraints, especially in making us believe such a thing could happen. I liked "A" and felt much empathy and compassion for him/her.
