Format: Paperback
Now THAT'S how to write YA fiction!

I've not been so compelled to finish a book for some time. A truly unique idea (that requires some suspension of disbelief) and a growing love story that (maybe occasionally over the top) is sweet, honest and emotive.

'A' has spent his whole life in the strange situation of moving around from body to body every day. Each morning he awakes in a new bed. With different parents, a different face in the mirror. For one day. Then he moves on. Only into bodies of the same age. It's fascinating. It's never explained how or why.
We never even come to know if A is a boy or girl. At 16, A finds a connection with a girlfriend of his occupied body and from then on tries to see her each day, wherever and whoever he wakes up as. Can they connect? Can it work?

With unanswered questions I wondered if the book would frustrate me but not at all. I loved it. The insights A gives into becoming a blind person, an illegal immigrant, an addict, a geek, it's all pitched perfectly. As is the ending.

A wonderful read with much to chew over afterwards.

As is the case with all David Levithan's books, the writing is impeccable. The thoughts are profound, touching and real. And that's the thing with Levithan, he likes to keep it real, but full of emotion.

However, as far as the story goes, it's as unrealistic as it gets. In fact, I found the love story between A and Rhiannon a bit implausible. I don't know if any girl would go for a relationship the likes of this one, instead of telling him/her to leave her the hell alone. I was greatly intrigued by A's story, when he finds Reverend Poole and discovers that there could in fact be an explanation to this strange phenomenon. I would've liked for Levithan to focus a little more on that aspect, rather than focus solely on the romance, and that's where, I feel, he fell short. The whole story, literally from page 1, focused mainly on Rhiannon and how A felt towards her. How he immediately felt a connection and was head over heels in love with her. Everything after that centered on how he was going to see her, when he was going to see her, what he was going to tell her, and so on.

As far as romances go, I liked it. As far as characters go, I thought Levithan did an incredible job (not only with A and Rhiannon, but every other single character). As far as writing, I have no complaints. But as far as plot development, I was hoping for more with regards to A's situation.

That being said, I loved the book, so much so that I could not put it down. At some point it almost felt like reading so many different short stories, because of all the different characters, and the lives and families involved. I also loved A's sacrifice at the end. They say if you really love someone, you would know when to let them go, and I think Levithan here proved to us the true selflessness and true feelings of A towards Rhiannon.

After reading several of Levithan's books and being disappointed, I am happy to finally find one that I actually like!

Format: Paperback
This book is a really wonderful look at how a person can live outside of gender and sexuality boundaries. A doesn't even seem to think that it's weird to not think of yourself in terms on these characteristics- they are more worried about how they can live a normal life when every day they are a different person.

When they start a relationship with a girl they have to face these kind of issues, as she can't accept that A isn't a boy or a girl, isn't straight or gay, but she loves them all the same.

It's a great look at a `long distance' relationship with a twist, and the concept is so unique. I kept thinking about how this would feel for a long time afterwards. You could never have a life or family or read a long book. You could keep a blog, and online friends, but you could never meet them... You could never have kids, but you'd have to look after hundreds of other people's children. It's a scary thought.

As with all of Levithan's books this is really well written and often really funny. It has a very crisp style and you can read the entire book in one sitting without getting bored.

Format: Paperback
I am not sure why most other reviews think that this is such an original concept. Perhaps they are too young to have seen the TV show Quantum Leap in the late 1980s - from which this is pretty much a direct copy. Well written certainly, but original no.

The author writes so beautifully there are some phrases which feel more like poetry than prose, but it seems that he is not so concerned about writing a story which leaves the reader satisfied. I won't spoil the ending but, like so many other reviewers, it felt to me like an abrupt cop-out. It made no sense within the framework of the story, and was just rather annoying. So many avenues were left unexplored and unexplained.

I explained the premise to my 10 year old, and asked him what he thought would make a satisfying ending. His answer was to find out why A was jumping bodies, and to see that A ended up with the love of his life by the end. Indeed.

I loved this book, in fact I found it hard to put down. The premise was interesting , the characters were all deep, intelligent and likeable and most of all the feelings throughout we're powerful.
The one qualm I had was the ending left a bit to be desired.
