This book, told from the point of view of main character Allyson, tells the story of her chance encounter with Willem and their one day spent in Paris. Allyson and Willem are an unlikely pair who seem to be inexplicably drawn to one another. Little does Allyson know that the one day in Paris will define her life and help her understand who she is in it’s aftermath. A love story like I have not read in quite some time, this young adult novel hits it right on the nail. The author portrays the relationship between Allyson and Willem exactly as many of us had felt love to be in our lives and seems to fully understand how to connect with people’s emotions. This book is not only about love, but also about self-discovery, growing up, and taking chances. I could not put this book down!
