Our Literary Circle just finished reading "Every Day" by David Levithan. "Every Day" was nominated for The Kentucky Bluegrass Award this year, and it seemed like a perfect fit for a book club. It didn't disappoint.
The main character "A" isn't a boy or girl. " A" just wakes up in a different body every day. Always 16, always for one day. He tries to live the day without messing up the life of that person while dwelling there. It could be a male, female,any ethnicity, gay, straight, skinny or obese. The conflict comes when A falls in love for the first time. Can you truly love someone no matter what they look like? The story gets crazy and confusing but it will also take your breath away. No matter what our opinions of the book, we all agreed it was a great read and quite unforgettable.

Here are some photos of our fun group of teens. We have coffee and doughnuts and try to get in as much discussion as possible before the morning bell! Hope you'll join us or offer suggestions for our next great read!
