Book Club Questions for One Day in December

Do you believe in love at first sight? Could Laurie love Jack after one glance, or is infatuation a better word for what she feels?

What do you think would have happened if Jack and Laurie had met that day on the bus?

Why do you think Jack chose not to tell Laurie that he remembered meeting her until the end of the book? Was this a wise choice?

One Day in December is set over roughly 10 years. How did the long timeline enhance or hinder your reading experience and enjoyment of the novel?

The novel is told from both Laurie and Jack's perspectives. How did this choice affect the story for you? Would you like to have heard the story from Sarah's point of view as well?

Discuss Laurie's relationship with Oscar. How did it change her?

How did Laurie and Jack grow and change throughout the novel? Did these changes make it easier for them to finally get together?

After Laurie reveals to Sarah that Jack is the bus boy, do you think Sarah’s feelings of betrayal and hurt towards Laurie are warranted? Do you think Laurie should have told Sarah sooner?

Did you like the ending? Do you think Jack and Laurie will last?
