Just One Year by Gayle Forman

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Allyson and Willem share one magical day together in Paris, before chance rips them apart. A romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents life throws at us. But is one day enough to find your fate?


Just One Year by Gayle Forman

An alluring story that pushes beyond the realm of star-crossed romance. Publishers Weekly

As satisfying as both of these books are, readers are going to wish for a third. Booklist
