Just One Year is about the search for "Lulu" (the girl he traveled and connected with in Paris), family, and fate.
- Just One Year is set after the events from Just One Day, which for me, was not what I was expecting. I thought this book was going to pick after they meet again, but this was more like Wilhelm's somewhat-origin story. This may not a con to some, but it was a little disappointing for me.
- There were many boring moments.
- There were so many characters that when a certain name came up, I forgot who that person was.
- Not enough of "Lulu" (or Allyson)
- The reader gets to learn more about Wilhelm such as his family, his personality, his friends, his past.
- The book is in Wilhelm's point-of-view. It's interesting to read in his perspective on things.
- Lovable characters (practically a boy named Prateek)
- There were moments that were sweet
Overall, I thought Just One Year is mediocre compared to its other pair. There wasn't any suspense or climax that made the book a page turner, but I do find some elements that were heartwarming and meaningful. I guess I just expected more for Just One Year.
3 out of 5 stars
