Six Earlier Days
Six Earlier Days by David Levithan
A novella that prequels the six days in the life of the body-hopping “A” from Levithan’s novel Every Day.
I wake up to the sounds of footsteps and muffled giggles, and the smell of maple syrup.
I still love the concept of a teenager who wakes up in a different body each day, and I love Levithan’s writing style. That said, this book read much like a ‘deleted scenes’ bonus from EVERY DAY — there wasn’t a whole lot that added to the plot, or clued the reader into A’s life prior to EVERY DAY, as the blurb had promised. A lot of the themes and situations felt like a bit of a rehash from the full-length novel.
