My two favorite young-adult novels of the year so far — and two of my favorite novels of the year, period — are The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and now Every Day by David Levithan, which hits shelves Aug. 28. On the surface, the two novels appear quite different: The Fault in Our Stars — widely known as #TFiOS on Twitter — centers on two teens fighting cancer; Every Day is told from the point of view of a teen named A who wakes up in a different body every morning. While Every Day has an out-there and fun paranormal twist, it’s every bit as relatable, wise, and believable as the best realistic teen fiction.
In the video below, A apparently has started hopping from one YA superstar’s body to another! Twenty-three of Levithan’s fellow authors, including Green, Libba Bray, Brian Selznick, and many more take turns telling A’s story. Check it out!
How many of these authors can you recognize by their faces? I spotted Green, Bray, Selznick, Ally Condie, Marie Lu, Ellen Hopkins, Andrea Cremer, and Maggie Stiefvater.
And who gets points for their monologue-ing/cue card-reading skills?
