Before you find out how their story ends, remember how it began....
When he opens his eyes, Willem doesn’t know where in the world he is—Prague or Dubrovnik or back in Amsterdam. All he knows is that he is once again alone, and that he needs to find a girl named Lulu. They shared one magical day in Paris, and something about that day—that girl—makes Willem wonder if they aren’t fated to be together. He travels all over the world, from Mexico to India, hoping to reconnect with her. But as months go by and Lulu remains elusive, Willem starts to question if the hand of fate is as strong as he’d thought. . . .
The romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents that happen—and the happiness we can find when the two intersect.

I don't know if I've said this before but Gayle Forman can write romance with feelings more than any author I've seen. Not only that, she manages to write a romance that makes me love the characters and believe in the power of their love when the characters are rarely together. I loved Willem's story and seeing what he was doing the year after he and Allyson parted and how, like Allyson, he grew and changed and found himself in that year. This is a terrific story with lots of feeling.
