From the Publisher:
A has no friends. No parents. No family. No possessions. No home, even. Because every day, A wakes up in the body of a different person. Every morning, a different bed. A different room. A different house. A different life. A is able to access each person's memory, enough to be able to get through the day without parents, friends, and teachers realizing this is not their child, not their friend, not their student. Because it isn't. It's A. Inhabiting each person's body. Seeing the world through their eyes. Thinking with their brain. Speaking with their voice.

It's a lonely existence--until, one day, it isn't. A meets a girl named Rhiannon. And, in an instant, A falls for her, after a perfect day together. But when night falls, it's over. Because A can never be the same person twice. But yet, A can't stop thinking about her. She becomes A's reason for existing. So each day, in different bodies--of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, walks of life--A tries to get back to her. And convince her of their love. But can their love transcend such an obstacle?  
Annotation:
Exploring what love means beyond gender and body type, David Levithan delves deeply into the topic in an esoteric young adult love story unlike any other. Without gender or body, just spirit, A spends each 24-hour cycle in a different body, effortlessly transferring bodies within the same general area and about his/her same age of 16. A lands in a very diverse group of teenaged bodies, having new experiences each time, and trying to affect their lives as little as possible. However, when A inhabits the body of Justin, a feckless boy who doesn't even begin to appreciate or understand his girlfriend, Rhiannon, A falls in love. Driven to find Rhiannon every day, no matter what body A has is challenging, completely transforming an already complex and mysterious life.

Praise

"Levithan keeps the pages turning not only with ingenious twists on his central conceit . . . but with [his main character's] hard-earned pieces of wisdom about identity, isolation, and love. He clearly understands the profound effect that fun, thoughtful literature can have on young people." - Stephan Lee 08/31/2012

"An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender." (starred review) 08/01/2012
