If you’ve read any of Gayle Forman’s other works, If I Stay or Where She Went, among others, you’ll understand why you’d run to pick up this book. She’s an amazing author who knows how to pull you into a story and into the lives of her characters. Here’s the Goodreads summary of this book.
“A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay
When sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.
Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!”
Really enjoyed this book! The only thing I didn’t like was that it ended right where I wanted it to keep going! I definitely look forward to “Just One Year” to hear Willam’s side of this story and the continuation of their story.
I will say, I expected a bit more detail of Allyson and Willam’s day together. I didn’t expect so much of the book to be focused on Allyson’s search for Willam. But, I really can’t wait to read the next one.
