In Every Day, New York Times bestselling author David Levithan presented readers with his most ambitious novel to date: Every morning, A wakes up in a different body and leads a different life. A must never get too attached, must never be noticed, must never interfere.

The novel Every Day starts on Day 5994 of A's life. In this digital-only collection Six Earlier Days, Levithan gives readers a glimpse at a handful of the other 5993 stories yet to be told that inform how A navigates the complexities of a life lived anew each day.

In Every Day, readers discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day. In Six Earlier Days, readers will discover a little bit more about how A became that someone.

Fans of Levithan's books such as Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, co-written with Rachel Cohn, and Will Grayson, Will Grayson, co-written with John Green, will not want to miss A's adventures in Every Day and Six Earlier Days.

If you haven't read Every Day this is a great introduction to A's life within the lives of others. If you have read it, then this is your chance to get a glimpse into a few new days in the life. Doesn ... Read full review

I read ‘Six Days Earlier’ as it was purported to be a prelude to ‘Every Day’ and was interested in how this set the scene. Plus it was ultra short and could give me quick insight into what to expect in this series.
This felt a little hit and miss for me – I loved the snippets of lives and the attitude for wearing their skin, leaving everything at a point where the owner could step back in without too many changes.
A’s attitude about life, people, and how to treat others is steaks beyond much of YA out there. The open and non-judgemental mind developed over so many years of walking in just about everyone else’s shoes.
Love the concept, enjoyed a voyeuristic snapshot of so many lives, but ultimately was left feeling a little disorientated and wondered what the purpose of this novelette was… maybe I’ll get some more perspective when I read more of the franchise. I think I’ll have to revisit this short after reading ‘Every Day’ and put it into context; but as a whole I’m not sure what it was supposed to add to the series – but a great snapshot of what to expect, though, too short to give you any answers.
