Just One Day
by Gayle Forman

Goodreads synopsis:
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!

I've never actually read any of Gayle Forman's books before, despite owning a couple of them. I recently found that the sequel to this, Just One Year, was available on NetGalley, so I requested it and got accepted. I've heard really good things about this book, so I couldn't resist getting the sequel ready. I'm going to be ordering Just One Day from work this coming weekend, and then I'll be able to finally get going with her books.

This is a great pick! I'm also really looking forward to getting my hands on this book. Just sounds so good. I still haven't read any Gayle Forman books yet, but I've heard nothing but praise for her "If I Stay" Series. I hope you get it soon, and enjoy it very much. Let us know what you think about it.

I loved Just One Day and Just One Year! They're really both so perfect, and perfect together! I hope you enjoy them. Now I really want to read If I Stay.
