Chaque matin, A se réveille dans un corps différent, dans une nouvelle vie, et ne dispose d'aucun moyen de savoir qui sera son hôte. Une seule chose est sûre : il n'empruntera cette identité que le temps d'une journée. Aussi incroyable que cela puisse paraître, A a accepté cet état de fait, et a même établi plusieurs règles qui régissent son existence : ne pas s'attacher, ne pas se faire remarquer, ne jamais s'immiscer dans la vie de l'autre. Jusqu'à ce qu'il se réveille dans le corps de Justin, 16 ans, et qu'il fasse la connaissance de Rhiannon, sa petite amie. Dès lors, il n'est plus question de subir : il tente par tous les moyens de la revoir, quitte à bouleverser la vie de ses hôtes. Car A a enfin croisé quelqu'un avec qui il veut être jour après jour...
Un récit d'une originalité fascinante, un périple captivant à travers l'adolescence. Un tour de force par le co-auteur de "Will et Will" écrit avec John Green.
Aujourd'hui est un jour comme les autres pour Rhiannon. Alors pourquoi Justin, son petit ami d'ordinaire distant et lunatique, semble-t-il la voir pour la première fois ? Ensemble, ils vont vivre une journée parfaite - dont le garçon n'aura aucun souvenir le lendemain. Mais tout s'explique lorsque Rhiannon fait la rencontre d'A, qui lui raconte se réveiller chaque matin dans un corps différent et être tombé amoureux d'elle en occupant celui de Justin.
Mais peut-on s'attacher à un garçon qui est chaque jour un autre ?
Pour ceux d'entre nous qui se sentent ignorés d'habitude, un projecteur est comme un cercle magique qui a le pouvoir de nous arracher à la pénombre du quotidien.

Sixteen-year-old Elijah is completely mellow and his 23-year-old brother Danny is completely not, so it's no wonder they can barely tolerate one another. So what better way to repair their broken relationship than to trick them into taking a trip to Italy together? Soon, though, their parents' perfect solution has become Danny and Elijah's nightmare as they're forced to spend countless hours together. But then Elijah meets Julia, and soon the brothers aren't together nearly as much. And when Julia suddenly decides that maybe it's Danny she's really interested in, Danny has a decision to make: does he honor his relationship with the brother he thinks hates him, or does he follow his heart, which sorely needs some repairing of its own?Elijah and Danny don’t think they have anything in common except their parents. Danny thinks Elijah is a lazy, slacking, clueless dreamer who doesn’t know how to make a living. Elijah thinks Danny is a workaholic, stuck-up, soulless drone who doesn’t know how to make a life.

Then their parents trick them into taking a trip to Italy together. Nine days of escape. Nine days of somewhere else.

Here’s what I know about the realm of possibility--
it is always expanding, it is never what you think
it is. Everything around us was once deemed
impossible. From the airplane overhead to
the phones in our pockets to the choir girl
putting her arm around the metalhead.
As hard as it is for us to see sometimes, we all exist
within the realm of possibility. Most of the limits
are of our own world’s devising. And yet,
every day we each do so many things
that were once impossible to us.
Enter The Realm of Possibility and meet a boy whose girlfriend is in love with Holden Caulfield; a girl who loves the boy who wears all black; a boy with the perfect body; and a girl who writes love songs for a girl she can’t have.
These are just a few of the captivating characters readers will get to know in this intensely heartfelt new novel about those ever-changing moments of love and heartbreak that go hand-in-hand with high school. David Levithan plumbs the depths of teenage emotion to create an amazing array of voices that readers won’t forget.

Now with exclusive bonus content from author David Levithan, the New York Times bestselling mind behind Every Day and Another Day.
An emotional and politically charged novel that’s a must-read for turbulent times when the very democratic process itself is called into question and basic rights are at risk.
In the not-too-impossible-to-imagine future, a gay Jewish man has been elected president of the United States. Until the governor of one state decides that some election results in his state are invalid, awarding crucial votes to the other candidate, and his fellow party member. Thus is the inspiration for couple Jimmy and Duncan to lend their support to their candidate by deciding to take part in the rallies and protests. Along the way comes an exploration of their relationship, their politics, and their country, and sometimes, as they learn, it's more about the journey than it is about reaching the destination.
Only David Levithan could so masterfully and creatively weave together a plot that's both parts political action and reaction, as well as a touching and insightfully-drawn teen love story.

A picture is worth a thousand lies in this psychological thriller by bestselling author David Levithan (Every Day; Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green).
In this high school-set psychological tale, a tormented teen named Evan starts to discover a series of unnerving photographs--some of which feature him. Someone is stalking him . . . messing with him . . . threatening him. Worse, ever since his best friend Ariel has been gone, he's been unable to sleep, spending night after night torturing himself for his role in her absence. And as crazy as it sounds, Evan's starting to believe it's Ariel that's behind all of this, punishing him. But the more Evan starts to unravel the mystery, the more his paranoia and insomnia amplify, and the more he starts to unravel himself.
Creatively told with black-and-white photos interspersed between the text so the reader can see the photos that are so unnerving to Evan, Every You, Every Me is a one-of-a-kind departure from a one-of-a-kind author.
