A vida de Allyson Healey ue sempre foi planeada e organizada muda no momento ue conhece Willem um ator de espírito livre ue a convida a ir com ele a Paris e a adiar todos os seus planos A. Rating 45 StarsNearly a decade ago someone once told me that books are like memories; within their pages they store your emotions and thoughts a document of sorts of your experience I still don’t know how true that statement is but I dearly hope it is – at least when it comes to Just One Day Nothing better than this book itself can summon up the whirlwind of emotion I felt when I read it Although I cracked open its spine with trepidation – there are after all a plethora of mixed reviews out there – my feelings uickly changed from that of anxiety to excitement as I was swept up alongside Allyson on her breathtaking journey At one point I wasn’t sure if I was laughing or crying for I was so full of giddy happiness and bittersweet longing those are the types of feelings a Gayle Forman novel inspires in you I finished Just One Day with a smile on my face my heart swelling with pride for Allyson who felt as close to me as my own best friend and although the pang I feel when I think of this novel is only an echo of what I feel for Forman’s If I Stay and Where She Went duo I still love it albeit in an entirely different way Just One Day is a novel that will very easily either captivate or disappoint readers It’s a New Adult novel that almost demands that you be a teenager to truly understand it for Allyson’s journey is such a personal and nostalgic experience one that everyone can definitely relate to One of the best ways I can find to summarize it is a realistic rendition of Kristen Hubbard’s Wanderlove Although Wanderlove is one of my favorite books of all time I can’t deny that the chances of traveling to a new country and finding a hitchhiker to explore with are rather low Thus Allyson’s summer experience in Europe a disappointing one full of touristy stops and not enough life is easier to relate to When Willem an enigmatic Dutch actor who Allyson sees performing Shakespeare in London offers to take her around Paris – for just one day – she agrees despite her goody two shoes attitude What follows is a day of whirlwind journey; it isn’t perfect but it’s real and it’s far rewarding than any other trip on Allyson’s summer vacation Perhaps best of all to Allyson at least is that she is no longer Allyson the girl who listens to her parents studies hard and never lives life the way so many other teens do; now she’s “Lulu” a nickname Willem gives her and as “Lulu” Allyson is finally free to let loose the person she truly is inside Nevertheless her exhilarating journey is abruptly halted when the next morning Willem is gone Now Allyson is distraught both at thinking that Willem may have just used her and at contemplating her life in college as a pre med student – a path that her mother not her wants to follow As Allyson will learn however her day in Paris wasn’t about Willem at all – it was about her and finding out that she was than she – or anyone else – ever uite imagined Just One Day as I’m sure countless reviews have stated is a journey of self discovery Although I will admit that it isn’t wholly original it is certainly memorable Allyson has a certain vulnerability about her that makes her impossible not to love In Paris she may have been pretending to be “Lulu” but that was who she really was and she struggles to find a way to be that person again all while continuing to please her parents and hold onto her childhood best friend Melanie who constantly reinvents herself One of my favorite aspects of this tale was the subtle heartbreak that came not only with seeing Allyson and Melanie grow apart but

review Just One Day

Just One DayLlyson não consegue resistir e decide acompanhá lo uma decisão inesperada ue a leva a vinte e uatro horas de romance liberdade e intimidade ue irão mudar a sua vida Apenas Um Dia é um. As seen on The ReadventurerJust One Day is a story of self discovery sandwiched between the romance heavy beginning and end two stories in one if you will High school graduate Allyson meets an amateur Dutch actor Willem during her post HS culture tour of Europe and with a spontaneity unnatural to her throws away all her caution and embarks on a day trip to Paris with him They spend a day and night together and then it's over abruptly Allyson goes back home then starts college and succumbs to ennui Her already depressed state is made even severe by hardships in college intense helicopter parenting and lack of friends But her experiences during that one day in Paris eventually encourage her to change her life in a major way and go back to Paris Melancholy Sad Depressing These are the words that were constantly on my mind while reading Just One Day I am not sure a tone like this can work for me for an entire romance story I obviously like some drama if I enjoyed Forman's very tragic previous novels If I Stay and Where She Went but even those books were based on a love story that started out as charming happy romantic swoony In Just One Day on the other hand it's all doom and gloom and sadness from the beginning till the very end I am sure I would have liked Just One Day if the romance were uplifting interesting I found it hard to care for Allyson and Willem Allyson is a dull passive narrator Willem lacks charisma charm sexiness humor even Their one day in Paris is not romantic or fun in any way I attribute my negative impression of this day trip to the flashbacks of Taken running through my mind and my concern for Allyson's safety and to the general grimness of the whole European adventure While I do not doubt the accuracy of Forman's depiction of Europe this depiction is just depressing to exactly match the novel's overall dark mood How can one be so miserable in a midst of so much diversity culture excitement and freedom I don't get it If I had the experiences in Paris Allyson had in this novel I would have considered such extended date a complete failure and a waste of time and nobody would have gotten laid by the end of it But this one day has a great effect on Allyson and this part of the novel I never uite accepted or understoodBecause I mostly felt indifferent towards the romance frame of this self discovery story the middle portion of the book felt compelling to me It is especially compelling if you are looking for books with those notorious new adult experiences exploration of life after high school learning how to be independent from your parents choosing an educational path that suits you and not people around you finding new friends getting your first job I liked most of this middle except maybe the part where Allyson handles her schooling I don't believe that taking pottery classes instead of pre med classes while your parents are paying 40K a year for your school is a responsible and mature thing to do even if it makes you happy My philosophy is don't trifle with other people's money you can get your pottery classes for 80 at your local community college But Allyson's struggles with her parents and her diving into new friendships were the highlights for meIt is hard to give this book a fair assessment because so much of my dissatisfaction with this novel rests on my personal taste in YA romance college experiences and overall attitude to life On a technical level Just One Day is well written For me as an opinionated reader however this story felt lackluster with its unjustified main character's ennui realistic but grim portrayal of various E
