Just One Day - Gayle Forman
Allyson "LuLu" Healey is on vacation in Europe as a high school graduation present from her parents. While in England, she and her friend leave the group tour to watch an underground version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. During the play, an actor tosses her a coin. This simple act leads Allyson on an adventure that she can't forget.
Allyson meets Willem, a Dutch actor, and runs off to Paris with him for a day. Willem only knows her as LuLu. After their impromptu day, LuLu wakes up to find that Willem has left her alone in Paris.
Allyson continues on with her life. She attends college, meets new people, and discovers a love for Shakespeare and languages.
A year after her trip to Paris, she still wonders what happened to Willem and leaves on a quest to find answers.
