Author(s): Gayle Forman
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
A captivating, heart-breaking love story from the bestselling author of If I Stay.
"I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one!" Daisy Chain Book Reviews "Romantics will get swept up in the story, which has it all: true love, Paris, Shakespeare, and yes, the notion that 'anything can happen in just one day'." Booklist "A sweepingly romantic new love story from the If I Stay author" The Bookseller "Offering mystery, drama, and an evocative portrait of unrequited love, this open-ended novel will leave fans eagerly anticipating the companion story" Publishers Weekly "Just One Day is a character rich exploration of that time in life when you need to re-examine who you are. It's about clarity, and love, and heartbreak, and angst. It's the reason I love reading Gayle Forman's world." Victoria State Library Blog
