Just One Year

Just One Year is Willem’s perspective of the story that was told in  Just One Day , which was so needed!  We yearned for over a year to hear his side of the story because we needed to know that he felt the same magical connection that Allyson felt for him.  His year was just as heart-wrenching and hopeful as Allyson’s.  He found himself traveling the world searching for his mystery girl, but instead found a way to find peace with his past.  Much like Allyson, they both needed this year to discover who they are, who they want to be, and how to come to terms with their families.

Forman writes amazing love stories.  You are instantly drawn into the story and the characters’ emotion filled lives.   She captures all of the ups and downs of first love beautifully with her eloquent writing.  I have enjoyed all of her novels and am looking forward to her next adventure.

Just One Day

Just One Day is Gayle Forman’s newest novel and I  loved this book.  It was such a delightful, although emotional, story.  Allyson’s parents decide to give her a trip to Europe for her graduation present, which sounds incredible until you actual join the tour group.  Now uninspired by her very tight sight-seeing schedule, Allyson is looking forward to going home.  That is until she meets the Dutch Shakespearean actor Willem and impulsively decides to spend her last day in Europe with him in Paris.  Now her path has been altered and she will risk everything to find out what that one day meant for the two of them.

I loved this story.  It was such an enchanting love story that drew me in right from page one and held me to the last word.   We have all been sidetracked in life for love, and Allyson was no exception.  One of the best parts of this story is the couple’s day in Paris.  Forman’s descriptions of the city of love were great.  I felt like I was traveling with the happy couple and meeting all of the interesting people myself.  This book had some of the best side characters that I have encountered in awhile.  From the people in France to Allyson’s friends I found them all engaging and life- like.  It was easy to get swept up in the drama when the characters are believable and able to accurately portray a wide range of emotions for the reader to go through.  We have loved all of Forman’s past novels, but Just One Day is even more amazing than the others.  This is a must read for a YA reader looking for a magical love story.

Gayle Forman will also be attending the Tucson Festival of Books this March.  Check back as we get closer to March 9th and 10th to find out what time she will be signing at Mostly Books’ booth.  (Booth numbers 127-130).
