“"Every Day" is an interesting book tackling an interesting concept. Every day, "A" (the main character, you don't learn A's name right away as it isn't wholly relevant to the plot) wakes up in a different body. The body is never the same although similar. This being said, A's identity has nothing to do with gender or body, or any construction thereof.
PLOT: Personally I thought that this book is a bit short on true "plot" as we know it. We follow A falling in love with a girl, and them coping to make it work despite A waking up in a different body every day. There is a short sub-plot where A gets careless and the next day somebody A inhabited thinks he was possessed by a demon.
The latter sub-plot plays a surprising role in the resolution, given how secondary it is.
CHARACTERS: The characters are what truly make the book worth reading. The fact that A switches bodies every night addicts you to this book, because you always want to know who will wake up as next. Every day A will face a different challenge as presented by the body A is inhabiting, whether that be addiction, strength, mental illness, or just being in poor shape.
OVERALL: The character development is wonderful, mostly compensating for what the overall plot leaves to be desired. ”
