JUST ONE DAY
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
The extremely talented Forman has done it again. Protagonist Allyson is likeable and sincere; readers will be unable to resist rooting for her. What really makes this novel special, however, is Allyson’s relatability. She is a girl moving between life stages, and the way she questions both herself and the choices she has made will be achingly familiar to those going through changes of their own. Not to be missed.
Allyson’s European trip of a lifetime has actually been rather dull — at least until she impulsively changes her plans and goes to Paris with a Dutch actor named Willem, and her life is irrevocably altered. What started as a final vacation before college results in Allyson reevaluating her entire life and discovering who she truly is. (DUTTON, Jan., 320 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780525425915, HC, 14 & Up)
