Angela Merino asked Gayle Forman:

Your original idea was to write one or two books?

Gayle Forman With If I Stay and Where She Went, I didn't realize I'd write a second book until long after I'd finished the first (and written and entirely different book that I'll never publish). With Just One Day and Just One Year, I wanted to write them together, to intertwine the plots and the characters' lives in ways that the readers would see after they'd read both books. I didn't know I'd write Just One Night, the novella that completes Willem and Allyson's story, until a few months ago, though.
