Just One Day Book Review
Allyson, while on a trip in Europe with her friend Melanie meets a dutch play actor Williem. When Williem invites Allyson for a Shakespeare Street play “Twelfth Night” little does she know it is a new beginning for her. Allyson quite impressed with Williem’s acting where he is playing the role of Sebastian.
As Allyson is leaving for London with her friend, as fate could have it, williem is also in the same train. When he comes to know that Allyson (whom he refers to as Lulu) has never visited Paris, he convinces her to go Paris with him for a day. Allyson who has always been the responsible one throws caution to wind and goes with him.
While in Paris, the 24 hours transforms her life for ever. That day in Paris Allyson learns to take life as it comes. After their night together, Allyson wakes up to find herself alone. Devastated and afraid, with no money left, Allyson reaches London with the help of her Europe tour guide.
Second part of the book takes place with Allyson heading of to College in US. What follows is a year of self discovery and trying to find the pieces of her life.
Just One Day is not as impressive as the author’s previous work “If I Stay”. The story is slow paced and dragged to an extent where its a test for the readers patience. The author has succeeded in showing the Lead’s insecurities, doubts and at the end her stand for herself. Allyson is a complex character and it takes time to understand her. I rate the book 3.5 stars.
