Every You, Every Me

“I had gotten so used to being alone, but never entirely used to it. Never used to it enough to stop wanting the alternative.

Slowly, slowly, Evan is unraveling. His guilt sadness about what happened to his friend Ariel has never faded, and now it seems someone else knows what he did happened the day she went away. Someone who knew Ariel is stalking  punishing tormenting Evan with photographs of him, of Ariel, of the past, leaving him wondering if he did the right thing for Ariel and if he’ll ever be able to break free from his destructive obsession.

My Review: As the photographer gets bolder and Evan starts to spiral downward, I was racing to finish the book and see what happened. What did Evan do and what exactly did happen to Ariel? The book is written like I wrote the first part of this review, with words and even whole pages struck out as Evan tries to control his thoughts.  Also, the photographs Evan sees are part of the book, which drew me in even more.

Read this book if you want to look into the mind of someone with a mysterious past who is on the verge of losing himself. I also recommend it for fans of books written in poetry form, because it has such a unique format.  Every You, Every Me by David Levithan is available now at the library.
