eARC Review: Another Day by David Levithan (out August 2015) (Companion to Every Day)

I received an eARC of this through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Title: Another Day
Author: David Levithan
Page Count: 300
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary 
Rating: 4.75/5 Stars 
Another Day is everything we want from a companion novel to Every Day. This novel is beautiful and poignant. There is something special about the way David Levithan constructs characters and weaves together a story line. It is something incredibly special.

 Getting to see Rhiannon's perspective gives us all a better understanding to A. The other side of the story is just as heartbreaking as the first. The emotions expressed throughout were so real. It's amazing how uncomfortable I felt with some of the relationships in the novel. (I am avoiding saying the specific one so I am not spoiling anyone)

 Another Day is not as breathtaking or as fantastic as Every Day but it lives up to the expectations that is being set for it. If you loved Every Day, you will love this. It does seem repetitive at times, because of how easily it is to remember details from the first book, but it really doesn't matter that much.

 This book tackles so many issues and I think that is why everyone will truly love it. A couple main points the book is making is 'Why can't we love someone for the inside and not just the outside?' and 'Does gender really affect the capability to love someone?". I honestly believe in this time of day, it is very important to tackle topics like this and bring a better understanding to everyone. David Levithan has written another masterpiece. I am so glad that I got to experience it again. I will definitely be buying it when it come out.
