"Waiting On" Wednesday (73): Just One Day by Gayle Forman

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I haven't done one of these since...JULY!

Just One Day by Gayle Forman 
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile 
Release Date: January 8, 2012 
A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay

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. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, 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.

Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!

A new Gayle Forman book HAD to be on my list of course! I mean, Shakespeare, England, traveling, Paris, and man, just EVERYTHING about this book!
