Every Day by David Levithan had been one my favorite YA novels when I was in 8th grade. I've fallen in love with A along with the people A has been in. A novel that changed my point of view in life.
My love/hate relationship with the film is evident. I hated the injustice they gave A's character in the book. But I loved seeing the diversity of cast. Nonetheless, I hated how A's character was shaped to please the eyes of society, the viewers.
I may forget the flaws and beauty of the film, but I will remember its message every day.
A love story of beautiful rarity and a film of excellent craftsmanship. I felt like I was with the two main protagonists slowly forgetting (and simultaneously regretting the process of it) the memories of their love. A unique storytelling of how the desire to forget pain is human nature—but realizing that these things that we want to lose are the things we want to have ultimately: our memories—the pieces of ourselves.
