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!

    After reading the If I Stay series, written by Gayle Forman, I knew that I should continue reading her book, and I chose this one, Just One Day. I read this book during my winter vacation, and it makes me want to travel with them as well. They make me believe that everything can actually happen in just one day, and make me believe that there are more possibilities in life. The romance between Allyson and Willem is lovely. I love how the character was developed, Allyson is a girl who had everything planned, and ordered, unlike Willem, who is free, following his heart, nothing is planned, and he goes to the place wherever and whenever he wanted to go. And In just one day, Allyson and Willem traveled to Paris, in 24 hours, this trip is going to change Allyson's life forever. While reading this book, you could actually picture the scenes in the story, the place that they had visited, challenges that they had overcame, and what Allyson was thinking the whole time in this 24 hours. I would recommend this book to the person who loves traveling as well as who love romance, you feel love, heartbreaking, bittersweet all at the same time.
