Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. The second in the duet, Willem's story - Just One Year - will be published in September 2013. In Just One Day When sheltered American good girl Allyson LuLu Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there's an undeniable spark.

Just One Day by Gayle Forman

After just one day together, a spark bursts into a flame between Allyson LuLu Healey and laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiterthat, or so it seems to Allyson. Until the following morning that is, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.
