Publishers Weekly Review
|Those who have read Forman's Just One Day (published earlier this year) already know what happened to Allyson, the foreign exchange student whose whirlwind romance with a Dutch actor, Willem, was cut short. In this companion novel, Forman shares Willem's captivating side of the story as he embarks on a global quest to find his lost love. Besides discovering how and why Willem left Allyson stranded in Paris, readers will learn what makes him tick, as Willem's passions and troubled history come to light. Although Willem has plenty of money, there are things he can't buy, like affection from his emotionally distant mother or a sense of rootedness he hasn't felt since his father's death. It also can't buy the commitment Willem will need to become a serious actor. Old acquaintances and new friends guide Willem on a path spanning three continents, helping him realize the possibilities that lie before him. The complexity of Willem's character, the twisting plot, and far-flung settings (including the Netherlands, Mexico, and India) create an alluring story that pushes beyond the realm of star-crossed romance. Ages 14-up. Agent: Sarah Burnes, the Gernert Company. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.|
|Just One Day. Just One Year. Just One Read. 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.|
