Every You, Every Me by David Levithan, Photographs by Jonathan Farmer
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September 13, 2011
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.

I was browsing through the publisher's website about two weeks ago when I found this one and I immediately, without even reading the synopsis, added it to my list. Why you ask? Because I love David Levithan, yes I do! I fell in love with his writing when I read Dash and Lily back in December and ever since then I've become a huge fan and I want to read ALL of his novels, this one sounds really really good. It has photography in it too so it makes it much more original, we get to see the pictures that are haunting this main character in this psychological thriller, I'm very intrigued and will be preordering my copy soon. Can't wait!
