Booklist Reviews 2018 August #1

*Starred Review* Here is the third thought-provoking novel about Levithan's intriguing character A, the 16-year-old boy (or is he a boy?) who wakes up each day in a different body. As before, he is in love with a girl named Rhiannon, but, given his here-today-gone-tomorrow condition, he wonders how anything could come of his love for her. Accordingly, he has cut off contact and she misses him terribly so she—in concert with Nathan, whose body A had once occupied—begins to search for him. Unfortunately, someone else is also searching for him: X, a psychopath who had previously occupied the body of the evil Reverend Poole, who is now dead. Happily, Rhiannon and Nathan find A first and he and Rhiannon reconnect. But there is much to think about in their reunion. What does the word relationship mean for them? Can they maintain their connection? A also questions his condition of being, the ethics of occupying someone else's body, and whether or not there are others like him (there are, and Levithan takes readers inside their lives). Things become even more complicated when X, whose condition is identical to A's, finally tracks him down. Like the other two books about A, this is a novel of ideas that challenges readers to wonder if someday there will be another novel about these wonderful characters. One hopes so. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The movie version of the first book in this trilogy, Every Day? (2012), should increase this volume's visibility.  Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Spring

In Every Day and Another Day, gender-neutral A wakes up each morning in a different person's body. Someday alternates between A's point of view and the perspectives of those affected by A (love interest Rhiannon; former "host" Nathan) as well as other "body travelers"--including X, who's learned to game the system. As the series continues its themes of people's commonalities and the need for understanding of differences, suspense should keep pages turning. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2018 #5

In Every Day (rev. 11/12) and Another Day (rev. 7/15), we learned that A wakes up each morning in a different person's body. Someday alternates between A's point of view and the perspectives of those affected by A (love interest Rhiannon; former "host" Nathan) as well as other "body travelers"—including X, who inhabited Reverend Poole in the earlier books. X has learned to game the system, controlling how long he stays in each new body and treating the bodies' original inhabitants with disregard, at best. (Though A is gender-neutral, X identifies as male even on days he presents as female.) X's creepy quest for power adds tension without sacrificing the series' emphasis on character; the more-considerate A offers insights into each day's host. The presence of multiple body travelers also brings perspective on how the traveling works and how it intersects with personal identity. Some preachiness combined with an "Equality March" on Washington make the continued themes of people's commonalities and the need for understanding of differences easy to spot, but at the same time, suspense makes it easy to keep turning pages. shoshana flax Copyright 2018 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.
