Editorial Reviews. From Booklist. Call it an accident, serendipity, or a miracle, a single event comes to define a year in Allyson Healey's life. Straitlaced Allyson.

So, after a few breakdowns and family fights and arguments with Melanie, she started to see the fucking light and started to do shit by herself. Thank gods. Because the book was really good. The changes, the people around Allyson, the situations, the feeling… All those things were exactly what she needed, what we needed to read because I think we can all relate to them. He showed me how to get lost, and then I showed myself how to get found. Maybe miracle is. Maybe this is just life.
When you open yourself up to it. When you put yourself in the path of it. When you say yes. Or be a different version of yourself, a better version, a version that makes you happy. Going back to Paris was a good call and I got happy what she worked her ass off and managed to do it.
I liked how she worked things with her mom without giving ground away and I loved when she went to places because she wanted to.
The end of the book were both predictable and shocking. Thanks fuck I have the sequel. I love it. Maybe I'm broken, maybe I'm wrong I could've spoken sooner than I should've Only the good die old That's what they told me, but I don't know Maybe I'm breaking up with myself Maybe I'm thinking I should just keep to The things that I've been told Wait for the colors to turn to gold Do you know?

I have for four years now, but like. A lot has changed in that time. Perhaps most significantly, I had braces four years ago. That doesn't have anything to do with why my feelings on this book would have changed, but I believe it had the most significant impact on my evolving personality. But also four years ago, I was a lil thing.
I mean, I was still very tall then, but lil emotionally. Much nicer. I liked every book I read. I know. It's insane to imagine. So the fact that I reread this times during a period when I did not reread Any Books is not enough for me to be confident that I would still like this book. Because I have very little in common with fifteen-year-old me. I've straight up one-starred at least 3 books I gave 5 stars in We follow Allyson, who at the beginning of this book is hashtag enveloped in an extremely overcontrolled tour of Europe called Teen Tours!

Totally rockin' name. She is with her friend Mel who is hotter than her, which is pretty classic. But then a Very Attractive boy man, I guess comes up and is more into Allyson!!!! Also very classic. But what is unfortunately not very classic and what makes me love this book so freakin much is Allyson's character arc. Allyson is very play-by-the-rules. She does not like to take risks. Her life is therefore very boring. Even though that means lying and stuff!! Stuff she doesn't do!!
So she goes and sees it, it's all dandy, he throws a coin at her more romantic than it sounds, supposedly , and that's that. This full-on worldly total babe is on her train to London. They go to spend a day in Paris together. I'm going to say that again.
That would already be a pretty good book. I love me some v simplistic cheesy romances set in Paris. Anna and the French Kiss. But it makes up, like, a third of the whole thing. Which sucks.
I'm honestly sorry about all the caps lock. Maybe this book isn't perfect but I'm not open to the idea that it isn't. Because this book is pretty goddamn inspiring to me. I don't want to be cheesy or heartfelt or emotionally honest because that's profoundly off-brand for me and also generally unpleasant, but I can be kiiiiind of non-risk taking and rule-following sometimes Kind of.
I'm highkey cringing myself so it must be well past end-this-review o'clock. I will finish by saying: Bottom line: I loved this book just as much rereading it as I did in twenty goddamn thirteen.
Like, me: Bitter vessel of hatred; one stars books she used to love; in the midst of a Reread Extravaganza that is going, on average, quite badly. Fifteen, enjoys the simple things in life, still has braces I think, mentally rates every book highly doesn't have a Goodreads yet.
But those two selves form a lopsided Venn diagram. And in the needlepoint-small cross section of that diagram: And also for sweets. I legitimately, earnestly, worry- and sarcasm-free can't wait to read the sequel. Review to come!!! Are you looking for a whimsical romance filled with love songs and fiery kisses? Are you searching for a story with constant adventure, brimming with beauty and overflowing with passion?
If so, stop. Just One Day is not one of those books. It is not shallow. It is not like Anna and the French Kiss. It is beautiful, but in a bittersweet, lyrical, and oftentimes melancholy way. This is a book for people who have ever felt lost, for those who know what it feels like to be unsure of who they are, or Are you looking for a whimsical romance filled with love songs and fiery kisses?
This is a book for people who have ever felt lost, for those who know what it feels like to be unsure of who they are, or of who they want to be. After her senior year of high school, good girl Allyson Healey embarks on a journey to Europe.
By chance she encounters this actor — Willem — again on a train, but their relationship turns an entirely different direction when she decides to spend a day with him in Paris.
There she becomes Lulu, an adventurous soul with no reservations, and she discovers a side of herself with Willem she comes to love in less than 24 hours. But the next day she wakes up and Willem is gone. If New Adult becomes a tangible genre in the realm of fiction, this is what it needs to be like. Just One Day is not a sexual love story.
Depending on how you define the concept, it might not even be a love story at all. It encompasses all of the emotions associated with coming of age, going back and forth between growth, angst, hope, and sadness. Her character screams of vulnerability, insecurity, and nuance, but has that spark of relatability and that whisper of strength that urges you to cheer her on. The other characters in the book: There are numerous themes that come together to form Just One Day.
But my favorite has to be that of identity and discovering the truth about oneself. View all 12 comments. View 2 comments. Allyson made some bad decisions in this book, and as a parent you would want to ground her for life. Not telling anyone where she was o "Why are you making a bucket list then? Not telling anyone where she was or what she would be doing? And the list goes on. What do you say? You want to go to Paris? For just one day?
Did he really up and leave her? Did he leave a note? What happened? Was being screwed over once not enough? And does she really not like Nutella? I need to know! Such a cliff-hanger!!

Apr 30, Hailey Hailey in Bookland rated it it was amazing Shelves: I didn't enjoy If I Stay as much as everyone else seems to and I read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and didn't really enjoy it and this book is pretty similar, but it wasn't just a love story, it had so much more depth to it.
I loved the pivotal role Shakespeare played in the story and how his plays all tied into the identity struggle Allyson was having. The love story was also insta love but not annoyingly s 4. The love story was also insta love but not annoyingly so. It just kind of made sense as Allyson was trying to be this impulsive, wild child that was the exact opposite of she really is.
Her identity struggle gave the story so much depth and it just made for one of those contemporaries that's packed with meaning yet also has a great romance. Just a great book overall, I'll probably do a review soon on my channel.

Aug 20, Siena Mirabella rated it liked it. I enjoyed this book! Definitely not what I expected but I'm pleasantly surprised. I really did enjoy the story line and progression. The character development was amazing. Although, I found myself skimming a bit during the middle due to the fact that I felt that some parts just dragged on.
However, the last several chapters were fantastic which made up for it! View 1 comment. Forman was working on a new novel, Just One Day. Just One Day was a bittersweet story that entranced me, took hold of my heart, and gave it a great big squeeze! My heart still aches. Allyson is almost to the end of her graduation present, a three week trip touring Europe.
On a whim and an accident, she meets charismatic Willem, a Dutch actor at the end of his tour performing the Shakespearian play, Twelfth Night. There is an instant connection and attraction.
When he finds out that Allyson missed Paris and is about to travel home without seeing it, he insists she go there with him as her guide. Normally Allyson would never do such a thing. Break her plans, and do something spur of the moment and with a total stranger?
No way. They spend an amazing and strange day together, and an incredible night, but when Allyson wakes, Willem is gone and left no clue where to find him. Added to that, Allyson is enrolled in classes basically picked by her mother as a pre-med student.
This story broke my heart! At that point on Allyson basically goes through a big depression and I felt like I went through it with her. As heartbreaking as the experience was, doing the unexpected was liberating for Allyson, and soon she starts to question what she really wants out of life. Spending time with these two sucked the confidence and will right out of her.
A captivating, heart-breaking love story from the bestselling author of If I Stay.
At the beginning of the trip she was nothing but an attention hog, and put Allyson down continually. She poured her own expectations into Allyson instead of letting her find what was right for her. There is more to his story. I hope to find out that appearances were misleading.
I hope this for Allyson, and well, for me too! You know me, I want that happy ending. I have to think back to my feelings when I read it, and remember that for most of the story I had this achy feeling, as well.
Yes, Adam and Mia loved each other, but looming ahead of them were their futures, which were about to take a very different and separate path. Even without the accident, they had a tough road ahead, and I kept wondering how things were going to work.
This was multiplied tenfold when I started Where She Went and found out what happened! But tsk, tsk, ye of little faith yes, that was me. Work her magic and heal my heart. We shall see. I will leave off with a swoony quote to soothe some of the heartache: Willem holds my wrist for a long moment, looking at that birthmark. Then he lifts it to his mouth. And though his lips are soft and his kiss is gentle, it feels like a knife jamming into the electrical socket.
It feels like the moment I go live. You can read this review and more at The Readers Den. View all 39 comments. Those who enjoy books involving traveling. I'm really starting to think I need to spend more time in the Contemporary genre. Yes, I can't believe I haven't read them yet either.
No, I'm not sure what my malfunction is. But what I am sure of is how happy I am to have finally read a Gayle Forman novel. Just One Day came complete with a charming cast of characters, Parisian backdrop and such a relatable coming of age story. Right from the start I knew I would love thi I'm really starting to think I need to spend more time in the Contemporary genre.
Right from the start I knew I would love this book. Allyson reminds me so much of my younger self. She's unsure of herself, follows the rules to the T, is more focused on the approval of other around her verses what she wants, etc.
I'm sure we could all relate to feeling that way at one point in our lives and that's what made this book real for me. While Allyson is traveling Europe with her teen tour group, she stumbles across Willem, who seems to be the opposite of herself. So for just one day, Allyson decides take a few chances, takes up the alter ego "Lulu" and becomes the spontaneous traveler. I totally get that. Even still today, I get those urges of just letting go and let live. But then, the next thing I know things have gotten so widely out of control.
And soon after, I'm once again craving my comfort box. But enough about me What I loved about Just One Day is how Allyson both loses herself that day in Paris and later finds herself over the course of a year afterwards. When all is said and done and she has to resume her life after being left by Willem, she's broken, a mere shadow of who she thought she was. I think it was there that I truly started to connect with Allyson on a deeper level. Here we have a former honor student struggling to get by in her college courses, struggling to keep former relationships intact and struggling at making new ones.
What I found most interesting is that it's not her relationship with Willem that metaphorically heals her, but the secondary characters she meets at college. How often do we read in YA novels the male heart-throb being the catalyst for change in the heroine? Too often, in my opinion. Allyson's change is gradual and is due to various people and experiences, most of which have nothing to do with Willem. Ya know, pretty much how life is supposed to work.
I went into this story expecting some sort of fluffy romantic contemporary novel, but I guess I should have known it wouldn't be that simple. I suppose that's what I get for being fashionably late to the Gayle Forman party.
The feeling of enlightenment I had with Just One Day was very similar to how I felt while reading Wanderlove , which also features a girl searching for answers, but ends up finding so much more. Then, of course, you have the fantastic setting of Paris. I've always wanted to go to Paris and one day I intend to.
But while I was reading, it was so easy to visualize the french cafes, the old buildings, the culture. This is the second travel type novel I've read and it's a wonderful change in scenery.
High school angst vs. I think we know who wins that round. If there is one thing I have to nitpick, it'd be the ending. Not that it was bad, but I think it has more to do with personal tastes. It's also where I found myself conflicted. I wanted her to find Willem and to figure out what happened. But on further reflection I realized something.
This wasn't about Willem. It was about Allyson finding herself. So clever, Forman.
