The compelling companion title to the much-lauded Just One Day follows Willem's transformative journey toward self-discovery and true love, by the author of If I Stay. Picking up where Just One Day ended, Just One Year tells Willem's side of the story. After spending an amazing day and night with Allyson in Paris that ends in separation, Willem and Allyson are both searching for one another. His story of their year of quiet longing and near misses is a perfect counterpoint to Allyson’s own as Willem undergoes a transformative journey, questioning his path, finding love, and ultimately, redefining himself. * The complexity of Willem’s character, the twisting plot, and far-flung settings (including the Netherlands, Mexico, and India) create an alluring story that pushes beyond the realm of star-crossed romance.” Publishers Weekly starred review As much a travelogue as it is a romance, this novel will appeal to fans of the movie Before Sunrise or Maureen Johnson's 13 Little Blue Envelopes (HarperCollins, 2005).”School Library Journal As [Willem] becomes engaged personally and professionally, readers will find their interest quickening, right up to the satisfying denouement.”Kirkus Reviews

As soon as I finished Just one Day I moved straight onto this, the second in the series. In the past I’ve never been one for book series but I liked how this one worked in that it wasn’t a continuation of the story from the previous protagonist, Allyson’s, perspective. This book was instead told by ...
Al igual que Just One Day, luego del encuentro entre Willem y Allyson en Inglaterra, seguido por Paris, toca ver qué ocurrió con nuestro protagonista masculino hasta el reencuentro. El año de Willem varía mucho del de Allyson, viajando a lugares exóticos, conociendo todo tipo de gente y viviendo cie...
I feel the same about this book as a do as the first. I liked parts of it while other parts seemed to drag. I would like to read the third book since I have read the first two. Mixed feelings once again.
I liked this novel because it was in Willem's point of view, and so you got to see what happened with Allyson aka Lulu through his eyes and mind. In a way, it reminded me of the If I Stay series just because like that series Gayle did the 1st novel through the girl's point of view than with the 2nd ...
