Synopsis: Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

There's never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It's all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin's girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with - day in, day out, day after day.

Review: This is one beautiful piece of literature. I was completely set-back by how much this book opened me up and made me feel such strong feelings for this book and the topics it covers. It's hard to discuss all the different feels this book gave me, but I'm going to try :)

A is one of my all time favorite characters because of the way he/she is so pure and innocent. When A loves, he/she loves. A doesn't judge, ever. A is put into all different types of lives, in all different types of situations and he/she never, ever thinks a bad thing about another person (unless they're not a good person for some reason and even then, he handles it in such a mature, sophisticated way). I loved watching him fall in love.

Rhiannon was someone that was rather endearing to me. She was frustrating at times, but her reasoning was incredibly realistic. She was acting how just about everyone else might act should they be put in her situation. That being said, there were moments when I wanted to make her see what was right in front of her and the value of it, but she was blinded by herself (sorry to be so vague, I want to avoid spoilers!) 

I would recommend this book to ANYONE AND EVERYONE. Seriously, this book is some damn good literature that I feel like everyone should read. There are so many pieces of this book that make it incredibly valuable and meaningful. 

Have you read this one and if so, what did you think of it? What did you think about the A and his philosophies on life? What's a great piece of literature that  you've read lately?
