Everyday, David Levithan

BY THEA RICHINSON

Feeling like gender is confusing and hard to wrap your head around? Meet A, and follow them as they share their story in Everyday, where David Levithan shows that loving someone is based more on who they are as a person and not what one looks like. This book was actually part of the English course curriculum when I was in grade 10, (I didn’t get to read it then, and didn’t really know who I was at the time, but I read it recently) and I think that it is important to have queer books in everyday curriculum because there is still a lot of stigma and misunderstanding about gender. If we learned about it earlier and along with everyday things we do, it would normalize it and hopefully avoid all the bullying and hate people get for being non-binary or trans.
