"Just One Day," by Gayle Forman is a modern romance with a historical twist. Shakespeare is that historical aspect; the two main characters meet because of his amazing works.

Allyson, the narrator and main character of the story, is touring Europe over the summer with her best friend for their senior trip. On one of the last days of her trip, she meets Willem. Willem, a Dutchman, is also touring Europe but he is part of a theatrical troupe. They meet when Allyson and her best friend decide to see his troupe perform Shakespeare's play Twelfth Night. Circumstances lead to them spending a single day together that ends up impacting the rest of their lives.
