How do you preserve the memories of a relationship when your best friend is gone? Levithan and Farmer craft a haunting story of two high school boys who have a tenuous bond with each other through the anguished girl they lost. But this ambiguous relationship is about to be tested as Evan begins to find puzzling photographs that unravel his grasp on his relationships (past and present) and reality… almost. Incorporating strikeout text and Farmer’s photographic images Levithan only wrote the cryptic passages as he received the photographs. Unaware of Levithan’s developing story, Farmer continued to create the enigmatic images of his own design. Through their partnership the ensuing mystery created itself. At times a psychological thriller and at times a love story, “Every You, Every Me” will appeal to young adult readers who struggle with growing relationships as they begin to understand that everyone has a secret self that they might not be ready to share.

Let me get straight to the point okay? It was no Every Day but this book is still good because LEVITHAN. I love his writing. I love that style of his that really gets to your mind, heart and even your nerves. Like sometimes it frustrates me how I've never thought of that before but then I still love it. Anyways, I like this book because it showed deep and true emotions from the characters. It was a fast read because 1) the book is quite short and 2) i really want to get to the end of the story and find out who the mystery person is. ( )

First of all, I really like David Levithan’s writing. He has some very interesting ideas. IN this case, writing a novel around photographs. Photographs he never knew what of until he received them from a photographer who didn’t know what the book was about. It was interesting. At first I was sort of irritated because half the text is crossed out and trying to read it creates long run on sentences. But I quickly got used to it and soon it actually told much more about the story and the character. Levithan has such talent with words and expressions. I’m definitely glad I got to this one. Reading his books always give me something to think about it. There’s always something deeper to find in his books. ( )

Twenty-five pages into this, and I am already putting it on hiatus. Maybe I will be in the right mood later.

Emo, emo, emo. Full of young adult “emo-tism”, if that’s what they call it. I was disappointed because I liked David Levithan’s Everyday and this is just the total opposite for me. But I loved the photographs though. :D That’s what kept me interested. ;) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375860983, Hardcover)

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.
