Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring '13 Kids List
“Filled with the ups and downs of self-discovery, Forman's new book tells the story of Allyson and her uncharacteristic decision to travel to Paris for one day with Willem, whom she met during a Shakespeare performance in England. The connection between Willem and Allyson flourishes during their trip, which makes it even more shocking when the next morning Willem has disappeared. Allyson's quick return to the United States thrusts her into a year of questioning her path and discovering her interests. The story leaves you holding your breath for the follow-up novel!”
-- Kerry Barmann, Kids Ink, Indianapolis, IN


Description
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.
