The Story
Just One Day—Book Review

A chance meeting leads to a spontaneous trip, falling in love, and Allyson's life is forever altered. Her one incredible day with the handsome and free-spirited Willem ends abruptly and with heartbreak, but forces her to re-examine who she is, what she is doing, and what she wants to do. One special day leads to a year of self-discovery, a new journey, and a new Allyson.
The Scoop
Just One Day—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

Just One Day is engaging, compelling, and begs to be read in a single sitting. Taking chances, changing your course, choosing your own path--all of these themes run throughout this journey of self-discovery. Allyson is an endearing character, and readers will root for her as she struggles and finally finds her way. Characters are out of high school and in the summer before, and then during their freshman year of college. Underage drinking does take place, and language is somewhat strong though infrequent (cr-p, a-s, sh-t, b-tch, d-ck, a-shole, and only one f-bomb). Two main characters engage in sex, a condom is used, and it is written about tastefully and discreetly. One character is exploring her sexuality and another is openly flamboyant and fabulous. A complicated mother/daughter relationship reaches a much healthier and happier stage as the two learn more about each other and come to respect one another. This worthwhile read will be extremely appealing to older teen girls who enjoy adventure, romance, and travel. Those who are unfamiliar with the works of Shakespeare may be inspired to read something of his or to go see something performed.
