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

Just One Day. Just One Year. Just One Read.

Before you find out how their story ends, remember how it began....



When he opens his eyes, Willem doesn’t know where in the world he is—Prague or Dubrovnik or back in Amsterdam. All he knows is that he is once again alone, and that he needs to find a girl named Lulu. They shared one magical day in Paris, and something about that day—that girl—makes Willem wonder if they aren’t fated to be together. He travels all over the world, from Mexico to India, hoping to reconnect with her. But as months go by and Lulu remains elusive, Willem starts to question if the hand of fate is as strong as he’d thought. . . .
            The romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents that happen—and the happiness we can find when the two intersect.
