Gayle Forman knows how to write a love story that doesn't make you go think "this crap is too unbelievable". She writes them so that you get all wrapped up & become just as emotionally vulnerable as the characters. In Just One Day you have no choice but to follow LuLu/Allison on her journey into finding herself inside of the acceptance of someone else.
Willem allows LuLu/Allison to discover what it really means to be herself while all this time she has technically been her but an existence only version. In her 1 day adventure with Willem a man she doesn't know she becomes Allison fully living! I loved the wandering probe into becoming someone who was always trapped inside you. As this love torn novel takes you on not just Allison's love story but through her road to being who she really wants to be in life you can't help but see yourself trapped beneath the pages.
