Allyson Healey’s life is exactly like her suitcase—packed, planned, ordered. Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem. A free-spirited, roving actor, Willem is everything she’s not, and when he invites her to abandon her plans and come to Paris with him, Allyson says yes. This uncharacteristic decision leads to a day of risk and romance, liberation and intimacy: 24 hours that will transform Allyson’s life.
A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate, Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know.
Quotes from Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Sometimes the best way to find out what you’re supposed to do is by doing the thing you’re not supposed to do.
You have to fall in love to be in love, but falling in love isn’t the same as being in love.
I think everything is happening all the time, but if you don’t put yourself in the path of it, you miss it.
He showed me how to get lost, and then I showed myself how to get found.
