Book Review: Just One Year by Gayle Forman

Dutch boys never seem interested in me, mainly because I've never met any.
Funfact: Willem is Blonde.

Twenty-four hours can change your life . . . 

Allyson and Willem share one magical day together in Paris, before chance rips them apart. 

The romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents life throws at us.

But is one day enough to find your fate?

Basically, this fills out the missing parts of the Just One Day by being in Willem's point of view. Also elaborate on things hinted on in the first book about Willem's past.

 The book is separated into two parts with the same titles as the last one and we join Willem's point of view. We find out about Willem childhood and what he was getting up before Allyson finds him.It answer at lot of questions that left unanswered in the first book and it definitely worth it to read it if you're enjoy the book. I don't think the book would much sense if you haven't read the first book at points.

Some character development going, this is like an instant love book but it the realistic kind where they doubt which I love. Meeting each other causes them both to question their lives and relations with other people. Allyson in the first book and Willem in this one. Willem has lovely friends, but he is sort of arsehole to girls. Though, I actually like Willem a lot better after reading this.

Overall, I give it four out of five stars for clueless girlfriends. It was enjoyable read and a good addition to the story. It leaves you wondering but I think the end is promising enough. If you like the first one then you should definitely read this one.
