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—will follow.

    " 3.5 stars. It took me a while to really get into this book and all the Shakespeare parts were really not my thing but I enjoyed Allyson by the end. I'll be reading the next book to see how it all pans out. "

    " 3.5 stars - If anything, this book perhaps suffers from high expectations from the author's previous two novels. If I Stay and Where She Went both broke my heart and blew me away. This one, less so. Though I still liked Allyson as a character and sympathized with her perfectionism and over-planning/anxiety, I thought the relationship component with Willem at the beginning and end felt tacked on (why I had a tough time getting into the book at first). More a ruse to get readers to "tune in next time, folks" than to actually remain true to the characters. I will still likely read the sequel, but not with as much relish as Forman's first two-parter.
