I finished this book on 6th March 2018
It was meant to be completed last month, but I wasn’t putting much effort into reading it every day. However, last night I was trying my luck to see if I could finish it and I did. I only had a little bit left and took a couple of hours to do so.
When you finally finish a book, you realise there is nothing to read anymore.. unless you have the next one lined up. Who knows..
The story is set in America, mainly situating in different towns/cities. One main location in the book is high school, where mostly everything happens apart from in the respected houses.
This one showed A’s side of the story and how things were with Rhiannon. You get to see the interactions from his point of view. However, we also got see the daily struggles he faced in life. He was a different person each day in a different body, trying to integrate himself in society and it can become a problem. Especially, at certain points he was pressuring Rhiannon to accept him, even though she was in a relationship with Justin at the time.
He has grown attached to her, because he felt secure. She understood and talked with him. However, she also knew when to set boundaries with him, because the multiple characters of A were too much to handle. Eventually, her relationship with Justin ended and A saw that as a chance to move in. Rhiannon remained firm in his choice to remain friends. She was fresh out of a relationship, so she doesn’t needed any added stress to her life.
Although, this was something A didn’t want to hear, he had to respect her decision.
This book is something I have not read before and I don’t mean it as in I haven’t read books. I mean as in it’s different to others I’ve read. I don’t know whether it’s meant to be comical, but you can’t help but laugh and giggle some of the content. It feels way more personal, it was like reading a diary entry. The day was noted for each new chapter, to show the change in character and new day.
This was the second part to David Levithan’s Another Day. I have previously done a book review on that one, so you can check it out #BookReview : Another Day By David Levithan 📚. Whereas the first book was more serious, this book was funnier. You can definitely tell the two perspectives apart. You hear the story from a girls side and the boys side. In the circumstance, the male view doesn’t have a stern approach. It has a more of a breezing through life feel. Rhiannon telling the story had more depth and emotion to it. You could sense her up and downs and how she dealt with them. A spoke about it in a grounded, practical way. He gave detailed explanations on a day to day basis of what he was thinking and what was happening around him that day.
Overall, I enjoyed reading the book, because it made sense to read both back to back. Two points of view helps gain a clearer insight into the story as a whole. It helped fill in the gaps that wouldn’t of necessarily been filled with one piece of information. If you are going to read it, I’d recommended getting both books, so you’re not either confused or left on a cliffhanger.
It’s available to buy at your local bookstore & WHSmith.
The price ranges between £7-10.
