From the genius of David Levithan, co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist, comes a love story like no other you've read before. Each morning, A wakes up in a different body. There’s never any warning about who it will be, but A is used to that. Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. And that’s fine – until A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with – every day . . . A stunningly original novel that will make you view the world from a different perspective. You can also read Rhiannon's side of the story in Another Day. Levithan’s powerful novel explores the complexities of first love in a unique way that will captivate anybody who loved Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park and Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun. David is the New York Times best-selling author of Boy Meets Boy and Marly’s Ghost. While among his many collaborations are Will Grayson, Will Grayson with Fault in Our Stars author John Green. David's latest collaboration with Rachel Cohn, The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily, was picked by Zoella for her Book Club with WHSmiths. David is also a highly respected children’s book editor, whose list includes many luminaries of children’s literature, including Garth Nix, Libba Bray and Suzanne Collins. He lives and works in New York.

Many of today's schools struggle with large class sizes, a continually evolving curriculum, and a wide diversity in the ability and background of their students. How best to build an effective literacy community in this constantly changing environment is an increasingly difficult challenge for teachers, new and experienced alike. In Writing Every Day Kellie Buis demonstrates that sharing stories is a fun and engaging way to motivate children and encourage cooperative learning in K-8 classrooms. It proposes students writing letters every day as an efficient, effective, engaging and fun teaching strategy for organizing language instruction. Children''''s personal stories become the catalyst for language experiences that involve reading, writing, and all forms of communication. Teachers will find novel ways to: bridge the gap between the important principles of sharing stories and practical ideas on how these understandings can be translated into classroom practice; empower students to deepen and enrich their language skills by sharing their ideas, feelings, and experiences; show students how to begin to make sense of themselves, each other, and the world; create a strong partnership between school and home; give children the ability to express themselves and to be heard by others in their community. Student samples throughout the book illustrate the power of using their own life experiences to engage children in authentic reading and writing. Writing daily letters gives children a stronger voice and engenders feelings of self-worth, self-respect, and competence. This strategy reaps benefits beyond the language arts curriculum and helps students make connections and recognize patterns in everything that they read, write, and learn.
