Honestly, the first part of this book bored me. And by page 100 I was about to mark it as DNF with 1 or 2 stars. Then I saw all the amazing reviews and ratings of this book here on GR. So, I decided to give it another chance.
I was very glad I did. The second part was extremely interesting, and kept me thinking till the end.

The sequel picks up where this one left off, but in Willem's POV. I will DEFINITELY read the next book. I kept on thinking "Where's Willem? What did he do? What about Allyson?" throughout the entire story, and hopefully, Just One Year will give me all those answers.

I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them, which is why I picked this book last time I stopped by the library. I started reading it one evening around 6:45/7ish PM and didn't put it down until i was finished at 11:50 PM. I was so invested in Allyson's' search for Willem I couldn't stop myself from turning the pages. When the book ended I got so frustrated because I just wanted to know what happened next. I am very much looking forward to the sequel, and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed hopeless romance or self discovery novels, though it is an easy read with a somewhat predictable plot line.

At first I didn't like it because I thought she was annoyingly obsessed with finding Willem again. Then, as the story goes on, you kind of find that it wasn't Willem she was searching for, but her true self. It's a really coming-of-age story for those making the rough transition between high school and college. I can't wait for the sequel!
