I love Gayle Forman; I think she is an excellent writer! Just One Day was really good and the way the story played out I was really happy for the girl and how she finds herself and stands up for what she believes in. The girl went after for what she wanted and she never gave up even when she reached a dead end. This girl embodies a lot of characteristics that many girls wish to have. She stands up for herself even when it’s so hard, she goes after the truth, and she is the person she wants to be. I can’t wait for the companion novel!
I was very hesitant at first I mean come on another Cinderella story?? And this one isn’t even normal Cinderella is a cyborg!! But every single negative thought about this book was immediately put out of my head as soon as I got past the first chapter!!! I absolutely loved this book! And I am so mad at myself that I didn’t read it before!! So the next time you see the book grab it, you won’t be disappointed!

Summary: Jason is a basketball star and one of the most popular guys in school. Brainy Kyra isn't, but she doesn't much care what other people think. Under normal circumstances, Jason and Kyra would live in their separate worlds until graduation. But fate intervenes, and the unlikely duo is paired up for a class project. Although preconceived notions abound on both sides, Kyra soon realizes that Jason is not the dumb jock she anticipated. And Jason finds himself telling Kyra things he can't even tell his best friend. As the two become close and eventually start to fall in love, no one in school can believe it, especially Jason's ex-girlfriend, who is determined to get him back. Being together means navigating the obstacles that are coming their way-but staying apart may be impossible. Dana Davidson is a high school teacher who was the 2001 winner of the Newsweek WDIV Outstanding Teacher Award. This is her first book for young adults.
Review: From the moment I read the first page in this book, I could tell it would not be easy for me to put this book down easily. The way the author describes the thoughts and feelings of the main characters in this book makes the story come to life like it is right in front of your eyes. The best aspect of this book is the love story that just makes you melt. It is great at portraying how love can overcome all odds and criticisms while making each individual in the relationship even stronger and much closer. This is a great book to read and it relates a lot to teenagers and young adults.
Favorite Quote: "But what I envy most is the love you give to others. Your such a good person and you change me for the better."
