Book Gossip: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

I loved If I Stay and Where She Went - even though it took me a lot of time to decide to pick up If I stay -so when I heard about this new set of books by Gayle Forman I was all over that. And last week the cover for the first book, Just One Day (to be followed by Just One Year) was released!

I think I like the cover, though, honest, the one thing I keep noticing the watch more than anything else.
I hope I like the book when it comes out!!

Here’s the official description:

“Sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey has always followed the rules. Laid-back 20-year-old Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter has never been given too many rules to follow, so he just makes them up as he goes along. But when the two first meet in England at an underground performance of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, there’s an undeniable spark. 

As they spend just one day together in Paris, that spark bursts into a flame of love, or so it seems to Allyson, anyhow, until the following morning, when she wakes up to discover that Willem has disappeared without a trace. Over the next year, Allyson is forced to come to terms with the narrow confines of the life that has been built for her, and, haltingly at first, through Shakespeare, through travel, and through looking for Willem, to break free of those confines.”
