Everyday – Conclusion

cropped-fullsizerender-41.jpg

Overall I found this book to be extremely interesting. It makes me wonder what A does after leaving Rihannon forever.

A seemed to be good at the beginning of the book, but the more I read the more I came to dislike him. I disliked a lot of the characters in the book because it seemed like they weren’t being rational about their decision with a lot of disrespect to the people in their lives. I did like the story line though, and that’s what made it interesting to read.

Other people that have read this book before told me that it is really hard to follow since A is someone else everyday. I didn’t think it was hard to follow as long as most of the attention was kept on the main characters. The only confusing part was how A was going to be able to stay in a body for longer than a day.

The main question I have after reading this book was if A was really the only person living a life like his or not. There are hints in the book that someone in Montana lived like A, but there isn’t confirmation on if that was true or not. Reverend Poole may have fooled A into thinking that he could “stay in a body” for longer than a day.

post it

Day 6033 – Alexander Lin

Alexander Lin has Post It notes everywhere. Quotes and reminders, and A already likes the body he is in. A decides to contact Reverend Poole about how to stay in a body for longer than a day. After A acquires the information he needs he asks Rihannon to meet him. They meet up at the book store again and A asks Rihannon to pretend it is the first time they have ever met. A takes her for groceries and takes her back to Alexander’s place. He sets up a nice dinner in the tree house out back, where Alexander would have wanted it. A tells Rihannon about everything with Nathan and Reverend Poole.

At this point i started to get confused about how A is supposed to stay in a body for longer than one day. I think Reverend Poole meant spiritually rather than actually being in the body for more than a day. A had set everything up because Alexander is a good guy and he wants to set Rihannon up with him. He wants her to finally have the relationship that she deserves. He wants her to be able to be in love without complication. This is A’s last goodbye.

I’m glad that A decided to truly end what was going on between him and Rihannon. A is back on the right track for respecting the bodies he is in as well as Rihannon.

runaway

Day 6034 – Katie

A wakes up as Katie. The only way that A will never see Rihannon again is to get away from where he is close to her. A does what he probably should have done a long time ago and runs away. Although A is disrespecting her body, it is the only way to end disrespecting everyone else’s body.

Day 6029 – Darryl Drake / Day 6030 – Zara / Day 6031 – July / Day 6032 – Howie Middleton

track

Day 6029 – Darryl Drake

A goes to school for Darryl Drake but all of his friends feel that something isn’t right, but A just says its an off day. A decides to research Reverend Poole a bit more, but doesn’t find out much more than he already knew. Nathan at least does apologize for betraying A. Rihannon finally emails A asking how he is.

This just overall seemed like A was having a gloomy day. Maybe he just can’t get that he might not be the only one off his mind.

couple les

Day 6030 – Zara

Today A is Zara who is in an amazing relationship with Amelia. A gets to experience the happiness of a real couple in love, but all it does is make him miss Rihannon even more.

Things aren’t looking up for A.

sick

Day 6031 – July

July is sick today so A stays home trying to feel better.

mad couple

Day 6032 – Howie Middleton

Rihannon emails A asking to see him, but she also doesn’t want to fall back into what she had ended a few days earlier. Ironically Howie Middleton and his girlfriend get into an argument about how he doesn’t spend enough time with her.I think it is ironic because the whole book kind of is about how everyone has spent there time, most of it is Rihannon not spending time with Justin and A not spending time where his body should be at.

Day 6025 – Finn Taylor / Day 6026 – Lisa Marshall / Day 6027 – Kasey / Day 6028 – Ainsley Mills

fat boy

Day 6025 – Finn Taylor

A wakes up at nearly 300 lbs as Finn Taylor. A is self conscious about being over weight in fear that Rhiannon will just be repulsed. A at least has Finn go to school. He meets Rhiannon afterwards. They have dinner and a movie. Rihannon doesn’t kiss A, probably due to repulsion.

Rihannon is acting a bit shallow. Its hard to love someone you have no attraction to I suppose. She doesn’t even kiss A in this body, even though she is now free of Justin.

bench

Day 6026 – Lisa Marshall

Rihannon wants to talk to A so they meet at a park after school. Rihannon loves A but doesn’t love the lifestyle they would have. Rihannon can’t love every body that A is in, and she can’t live a life in an alienated relationship.

Sucks for A. It seems that without Justin, Rihannon can’t handle A either which seems dumb since now they have a chance where a boyfriend is not involved. I don’t know why Rihannon picked now to break it off.

Day 6027 – Kasey

Kasey has a broken ankle, so A has to deal with that. Rihannon hasn’t emailed at all. A decides to read the emails from Nathan and decides to just meet him. They meet at a Mexican restaurant. A told Nathan before that his name was Andrew but being Kasey makes it easier to come out with the truth. A tells Nathan everything, but asks that Nathan will keep his secret. Nathan agrees.

I wouldn’t trust someone that believes they were ‘possessed by the devil’ and sharing it with everyone to keep pertaining information a secret. A tends to not think about his actions first anyway, so I can’t expect him to start now.

Residential Home

Day 6028 – Ainsley Mills

Today A takes over Ainsley Mills. A doesn’t hear from Rihannon today either. Nathan does though and wants A to come to his house. A arrives at Nathan’s but doesn’t plan on staying long. Nathan leaves the room and Reverend Poole shows up. Nathan couldn’t keep his mouth shut. A doesn’t want to talk to the reverend but he stays for a few minutes. Reverend Poole tells A that he isn’t the only one that lives like he does and that there is a way to stay in a body longer than a day. After that A is trying to grasp this and decides to leave.

If I were A I wouldn’t know if I would trust any of that. Reverend Poole and Nathan have seemed to always be on the other side, so why would they switch now?

Day 6022 – Michael / Day 6023 – Vic / Day 6024 – Marc

Day 6022 – Michael

Michael is into heavy metal and should be going to Hawaii today but A doesn’t care, sneak’s out, and goes to Rhiannon. She is in gym but finds an excuse to talk to A. A explains the Dana thing, Rhiannon is mad at first but accepts A couldn’t do it differently. They embrace and Justin walks in. He beats up Michael and calls Rihannon a slut, and she was kind of being that way even though Justin didn’t have real proof. A runs so that Rihannon doesn’t get mad and to save Michael from a worse day. Rhiannon meets A later and tells him that Justin broke up with her. A is excited but Rihannon is just upset about it. A goes back to Michael’s home and his father is waiting there, and it pretty livid. He said he felt like beating Michael up but someone beat him to it. I just thought it was funny.

A got what he wanted though. Rihannon got what she deserved for cheating anyways. I just don’t understand how Justin was oblivious to it all along. Even if A has been in a different body, she hasn’t been around him and I’m assuming has been talking to him less. A still screwed up Michael’s life by not going to Hawaii when he should have though.

lesbo

Vic is a girl but is a boy on the inside. A skips school for Vic, again disregarding the body for his own intentions, to go see R. They have lunch, Rihannon thinks that its unfair of A to take advantage of the bodies he is only a guest in. A does at least keep Vic’s date with Dawn, the girlfriend. They have a great date, but Rhiannon emails no more school visits from A.

Rihannon is right about taking advantage of the bodies A is in. I think A is bad in the morning, and treats the bodies better in the afternoon. If only A could do that all day rather than only part of it.

funeral

Day 6024 – Marc

Marc must go to his grandfather’s funeral today, so A can’t see Rihannon. A tries to remember the day for Marc so he doesn’t miss out, since it is an important event in his life. A is being a good guy all day even though it hurts going to a funeral.

Day 6019 – Surita / Day 6020 – Xavier Adams / Day 6021 – Dana

jungle

Day 6019 – Surita

Surita’s parents are out of town and if she lets her grandmother watch game show network, her grams doesn’t care what she does. A meets Rihannon and they hang out on a jungle gym. They have a good day and Rhiannon will be free all weekend.

A had a day of not ruining anyone’s life. He seems to be able to hangout with Rihannon a lot. I know Justin isn’t super attentive in their relationship, but it makes me wonder why he hasn’t ever questioned why she is always gone. Does he even care? As much as I am not rooting for A, Justin doesn’t seem like a good option either.

hammy

Day 6020 – Xavier Adams

It’s Saturday but Xavier has play practice, but that doesn’t matter to A, A says Xavier is sick and skips the play practice. Selfish A back at it. A is two hours from Rhiannon and meets her at her uncle’s log cabin. When he arrives Rhiannon kisses him, they get naked, and she wants to have sex with him. A wants to respect that Xavier is a virgin so at least he considered the body he was in for once. Rhiannon won’t let him think about Justin. Instead they sleep next to each other until A has to go. He promises he will be back tomorrow.

Rhiannon is being a cheating little slut bag. I don’t know how Rhiannon is saying to respect the bodies that A is in when she doesn’t even respect her own boyfriend. I don’t know who is worse, A, Justin, or Rhiannon. At least A and Justin try to not be so hypocritical. A is wavering on the fence of good and bad, but he shouldn’t make promises when he has no idea what tomorrow will bring.

drunky

Day 6021 – Dana

A wakes up (barely) because he is Dana, and Dana is hung over. A finds out that Dana had gotten really drunk the night before, drove drunk, and backed into a telephone pole. That means that Dana is grounded, with no phone or internet. A can’t tell Rhiannon that he won’t be able to show up, but he shouldn’t have promised when he didn’t know how the day was going to go. I bet Rhiannon is going to get pissed, but if so she needs a reality check as well. A didn’t know today would go this way.
