Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

“So Lulu?  What do you say?  You want to go to Paris?  For just one day?”  Fortunately for us, Lulu (née Allyson) says yes.  Good thing for Gayle Forman, too; otherwise her book would have ended on page 30.  High-school student, Allyson, impulsively takes off for Paris with Willem, a Dutch actor whom she’d just met in England.  She spends the day and night with him, and in the morning he’s…gone.  Allyson is shattered and flees Paris.  These events are… Read more »

Seventeen-year-old Mia must find these answers when a devastating car crash kills Mia’s parents and leaves her… Read more »

Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

“Where She Went,” the sequel to If I Stay, is a very different story, and not only because the sequel is narrated by Adam, rather than Mia. If you read “If I Stay,” (and if you didn’t, I highly recommend it), you know that it ended with an incredible cliffhanger, and here with the sequel, we have the resolution. Maybe Gayle Forman has more of a knack writing romance from the male perspective, but I have a much better sense… Read more »
