Summary from

When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there's an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines. Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem's story-Just One Year-will be published in September 2013.  

I looove Gayle Forman! If I Stay and Where She Went are two of my favourite contemporary reads (I think I actually preferred Where She Went, which is unusual for me and kind-of-sequels), and that's largely due to the fact that Gayle is an amazing writer. She makes you feel every emotion and takes you everywhere with the characters - I'm usually an emotional wreck at the end of her books! I can't wait to read this and the good news is that it's out very, very soon!
