JUST ONE YEAR IS LIVE!
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.
On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.
(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)
I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.
So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.
And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?
The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.
Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.
He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.
That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.
Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.
He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.
Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.
I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.
What a difference a year can make. That’s what Teagan finds out. At the start of the story, Caleb is the hot exchange student who is smoking hot and enjoying his time in the U.S. For a while he drove me a bit bonkers while he was coming to his senses and figuring out what and who he wanted. That made me feel like the story had a very slow burn, but once it took off, my jaw dropped. All of the details which seemed like loose ends were tied up and made a complete picture of the life that was just starting to take shape in one year. And the portrait of their lives in the post-one year was so transformative.
At first I thought Ward was merely alluding to the time Caleb spent in the US. However, upon reflection after having finished the novel, I keep thinking about how many things changed in just one year and the amount they changed. And that right there is the beauty of the title and what it represents. A lot of bad can happen in one year, but so can a lot of growth, self-discovery, and beauty.
Enjoy the story at its face value and then look at the intricacies hiding a few layers below. That is the true beauty of Ward’s writing; you never know what you’re going to get in her stories, but it’s going to be good for sure!
