I love the way Gayle Forman writes, but I just do NOT relate to her books written from the female POV. I hated IF I STAY, but I LOVED WHERE SHE WENT. Same thing with this book. Don't like Alyson. Can't relate in any way....and yes, I know I am much older than the intended demographic. That shouldn't make a difference, though. I do intend to read JUST ONE YEAR since it's written from Willem's POV. If it's anything like WHERE SHE WENT it will be stellar.
