Pentru ​Rhiannon fiecare zi este la fel. S-a resemnat cu viața ei, convinsă fiind că îl merită pe Justin, iubitul ei distant și temperamental. Până într-o dimineață când totul se schimbă. Pentru prima dată, Justin pare să o vadă cu adevărat, să fie împreună cu ea – și petrec o zi perfectă – o zi pe care Justin nu și-o mai amintește în dimineața următoare. Tristă și confuză, Rhiannon pune totul la îndoială. Pe neașteptate, un străin îi spune că acel Justin cu care a petrecut o zi perfectă și care a făcut-o să se simtă specială... nu e deloc Justin. _Încă o zi, cartea-pereche a bestsellerului New York Times Zi după zi, spune povestea din perspectiva lui Rhiannon, care încearcă să descopere adevărul despre dragoste și felul cum acest adevăr te poate schimba pentru totdeauna._ “O poveste ce ne face să pătrundem adânc în mințile personajelor. Deși Levithan consideră că Încă o zi e geamănul romanului său precedent, Zi după zi, noua sa carte are o identitate separată, bine definită și poate fi citită independent.” Booklist David Levithan este foarte cunoscut datorită cărţilor sale pentru adolescenți, printre care Boy Meets Boy (recompensat cu Lambda Literary Award), The Realm of Possibility, Are We There Yet?, Live is the Higher Law. La Editura TREI, de acelaşi autor, au apărut Zi după zi, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (scris împreună cu John Green), Dash, Lily și Cartea Provocărilor, Playlist pentru Nick și Norah (ambele scrise împreună cu Rachel Cohn). “Nu simt nicio întrebare — doar răspunsuri. Nu simt frică, ci împlinire. Îl sărut și balansul nostru perfect continuă, răsuflările noastre se fac una. Închid ochii și simt apăsarea familiară a buzelor lui, gustul familiar al gurii lui. Însa acum ceva e altfel. Nu doar ne sărutăm cu trupurile noastre întregi, ci și cu ceva mai mare decât trupurile, cu ceea ce suntem și cu ceea ce vom fi.”

David Levithan - How ​They Met and Other Stories
This ​is a collection of stories about love from the New York Times bestselling author of Every Day. They met on a plane / at Starbucks / in class. It was a set-up / it was completely random / they were dancing. It was love at first sight / it took time / it was a disaster! Love is a complicated, addictive, volatile, scary, wonderful thing.

From the happy-ever-after to the unrequited, they explore the many aspects of the emotion that has at some time turned us all inside out and upside down. "Every Day is a wonder: a wholly original premise racing along with a generous heart towards a perfect ending. The best YA makes a place for its readers, and there are few writers as warmly generous as David Levithan." (Patrick Ness, award-winning author of the Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls).

This follow-up to the bestselling Every Day showcases David's trademark sharp-witted, warm-hearted tales of teenage love, and serves as a perfect thematic bookend to David's YA debut and breakthrough, Boy Meets Boy, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2013.

David Levithan - Egy ​másik nap
Minden ​nap ugyanolyan Rhiannonnak. Már elfogadta az életét, meggyőzte magát: megérdemli távolságtartó, temperamentumos pasiját, Justint, és még bizonyos útmutatásokat is írt magának: Ne számíts túl sokra. Kerüld el a feldühítését. Sose add fel a reményeidet. Mindez addig a bizonyos reggelig működött is, amikor minden megváltozott. Úgy tűnt, Justin végre meglátja őt, és ez volt az első alkalom, hogy igazán vele akart lenni, így hát eltöltöttek együtt egy tökéletes, csodás napot, amiből Justin másnap reggel egy percre sem emlékszik. Rhiannon összezavarodik, mindent kérdőre von, és mindezek felett kétségbeesetten vágyik egy újabb csodás napra. Nem sokkal később egy idegen megszólítja, és elmondja neki, hogy az a Justin, akivel azt a napot eltöltötte, aki elérte, hogy igazi, életteli embernek érezze magát, az a valaki nem is Justin volt.

O întâlnire între două lumi aparent diferite, cu excepţia pasiunii pentru muzică: Norah e fiica rebelă a unui mare producător muzical, Nick e basist şi compozitor într-o trupă underground de queercore. Întâmplarea face ca amândoi să aibă inima frântă după eşecuri în dragoste. Un volum proaspăt, inteligent, amuzant şi, în ciuda limbajului licenţios pe alocuri, deloc lipsit de duioşie. O carte pentru tinerii şi neliniştiţii de toate vârstele. „Nu-i destul să stai singur pe trotuar şi să compui un cântec pentru o fată, dacă n-ai tupeul să încerci măcar să vorbeşti cu ea." -- R.

Soon, though, their parents’ perfect solution has become Danny and Elijah’s nightmare as they’re forced to spend countless hours together. But then Elijah meets Julia, and soon the brothers aren’t together nearly as much. And then Julia meets Danny and soon all three of them are in a mixed-up, turned-around, never-what-you-expect world of brothers, Italy, and love.

David Levithan - Das ​Wörterbuch der Liebenden
Von ​A wie atemberaubend bis Z wie Zenit – was liegt näher, als die Liebe enzyklopädisch zu erzählen? Diese poetische Manhattan-Love-Story in ungewöhnlicher, verspielter Lexikon-Form ist ein Herzensbuch für jeden, der verliebt ist oder sich verlieben möchte. Hast du gemerkt, dass ich mich in meinem Internet-Profil zwei Jahre jünger gemacht habe? - Welch pure Seligkeit, als wir den Küchentisch unter den bestirnten Himmel stellten, um alfresco zu essen. - Ob es eine gute Idee ist, zusammenzuziehen? Sollen nicht wenigstens unsere Bücher eigene Regale behalten? - Du wirst doch nicht etwa Doisneaus Kuss aufhängen. Ich will es nicht wissen, wenn du mir sagst, du hättest mir etwas zu sagen… Ein Wörterbuch der anderen Art: Jeder Eintrag erzählt einen Schritt der Annäherung, der immer größer werdenden Nähe, aber damit auch der Verletzlichkeit. Literarisch raffiniert und romantisch, frisch und modern fängt es die beinahe alltäglichen Gefühlsstürme der Liebe ein: Momente des größten Glücks und des Genervtseins, großer Erwartung und kleiner Ernüchterung, und der einzigen Gewissheit, dass Liebe nun mal das Flüchtigste auf der Welt ist.

David Levithan - Rachel Cohn - Nick ​és Norah végtelen éjszakája
El ​tudod képzelni, hogy életed első szerelme a szakítás után megjelenik egy másik pasival a következő koncerteden? Amíg gondolkodsz, eláruljuk, mit tett Nick, a fellépő zenekar basszusgitárosa. Mielőtt még az excsaja odaért volna hozzá gratulálni a szuper jó koncerthez, megkért egy lányt a közönség soraiból, hogy legyen pár percre a barátnője. Nem tudhatja, kivel kezdett, de ki fog derülni. Mégpedig egyetlen pörgős éjszaka alatt! Vajon Norah és Nick útja tényleg csak egy csók erejéig keresztezi egymást? Vagy mit tartogat ez a zenés, hajnalig bulizós, egymás nyomában rohanós, végtelennek tűnő manhattani éjszaka Nick és Norah számára? „Mikor ér véget egy éjszaka? Ha elkezd felkelni a nap, vagy amikor már felkelt? Akkor, amikor végre elmegy az ember aludni, vagy amikor rájön, hogy muszáj? Amikor bezár a klub, vagy amikor mindenki hazamegy? Általában ezeket a kérdéseimet megtartottam magamnak. De most megkérdeztem Norah-tól. - Akkor van vége, ha úgy döntünk - mondta. - Mikor azt mondod, vége. A többi csak arról szól, hol jár épp a nap az égen. Semmi köze hozzánk.”

David Levithan - The ​Lover's Dictionary
basis, ​n. There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you’re in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself. If the moment doesn’t pass, that’s it—you’re done. And if the moment does pass, it never goes that far. It stands in the distance, ready for whenever you want it back. Sometimes it’s even there when you thought you were searching for something else, like an escape route, or your lover’s face. How does one talk about love? Do we even have the right words to describe something that can be both utterly mundane and completely transcendent, pulling us out of our everyday lives and making us feel a part of something greater than ourselves? Taking a unique approach to this problem, the nameless narrator of David Levithan’s The Lover’s Dictionary has constructed the story of his relationship as a dictionary. Through these short entries, he provides an intimate window into the great events and quotidian trifles of being within a couple, giving us an indelible and deeply moving portrait of love in our time.
