Fiction. Can a whole life change in just a single day? Allyson Healey (a.k.a. LuLu) would say yes. Just after meeting laid-back, handsome young Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night
, usually-uptight LuLu impulsively travels to Paris with him for a whirlwind day of romance. When she wakes up the next morning and Willem is gone, LuLu is badly shaken -- but over the next year of her life, her first in college, she begins to explore who she really is instead of merely fulfilling her parents' expectations. Fans of author Gayle Forman's previous pair of romantic companion novels, If I Stay
and Where She Went
, will be pleased to know that Willem's side of the story is to be told in the book Just One Year
, which publishes this fall.
