Gr 9 Up–What does it take to fall in love? One perfect day. That is really all A has before waking up in the body of yet another person. But in the course of one day as Justin, A has fallen in love with Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. The problem is that tomorrow A will be someone else. Though A has promised themselves that they won’t interfere with their hosts' lives, they find themselves drawn to Rhiannon and continually seek her out in their various forms in hopes of being loved for their true self. Fans of the original novel will appreciate the way the full-color, comic-style illustrations add depth to the story and characters. For readers unfamiliar with Levithan’s work, hand to readers who enjoy Alice Oseman’s “Heartstopper,” Trung Le Nguyen’s The Magic Fish, or Molly Ostertag’s The Girl from the Sea.
VERDICT A welcome addition to high school graphic novel collections, especially where romance circulates well.
