Convince us to read the book: This is book is a treat for fans of the book Every Day. This companion book is told from the perspective of Rhiannon and her experience of meeting A, the human who wakes up in a different body every day. While it is written in a similar style as Every Day, Levithan gives Rhiannon a very clear and unique voice. It is fascinating to see A through her eyes and learn how meeting A affected her daily life. My only problem with this book is that it was not the most interesting read since it was the same story as Every Day, but that is to be expected of a companion book. 
Memorable or Forgettable: This book was not very memorable just because it was so similar to the companion book. The other book however is an extremely memorable book because it is such an interesting topic and story. Both books tackle difficult ideas such as gender, sexuality, and what it means to be human. 
Cover: The cover is very similar to the book Every Day which caught my attention since I liked that book so much. It would also catch the attention of someone who hasn't read the first book which may prompt them to start reading both of them.
Age Range: 14 through 17
Quality: 3Q - Readable
Popularity: 4P - Broad general teen appeal
