Would be book 4/30 in the 2012 Reading Challenge... Had I finished it.
This story is heartbreaking and awful. It's like When Harry Met Sally meets City of Angels. Although When Harry Met Sally is one of my favorite movies, City of Angels is one of my least favorites. One Day is completely unrewarding and torturous.
Don't read it. And don't watch the movie. Putting Anne Hathaway's cute little face on any story this tragic should be illegal.
