Just One Day (Just One Day #1) by Gayle Forman
Synopsis: From the New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay
Allyson Healey’s life is exactly like her suitcase—packed, planned, ordered. Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem. A free-spirited, roving actor, Willem is everything she’s not, and when he invites her to abandon her plans and come to Paris with him, Allyson says yes. This uncharacteristic decision leads to a day of risk and romance, liberation and intimacy: 24 hours that will transform Allyson’s life.
A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate, Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know.
The first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!
I’ve read the If I Stay duology by Gayle Forman which led me to read this book. It was an enjoyable book, but I didn’t have time to read the middle (of the book) for long periods of time. I brought it to school and would read a paragraph before I was interrupted.
I rate this four stars because I didn’t love it and I didn’t get to know Willem to care. I did like that I got to read about France, Holland, and other places in Europe, but it wasn’t very detailed.
I wouldn’t recommend this book because what makes the book unique aren’t detailed and important so you’d be better off reading another book. However, I don’t regret reading it.
