Preorder The Stunning Sequel To Me Before You, After You, Now. The heartbreaking novel of the year from Jojo Moyes proves you're never too old or young to cry. Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time. The Author Jojo Moyes is a novelist and a journalist. She worked at the Independent for ten years before leaving to write full-time. Her previous novels have all been critically acclaimed and include Me Before You, The Girl You Left Behind and the Sunday Times number 1 bestselller The One Plus One. Me Before You has sold over 5 million copies worldwide and went to the top of the charts in 9 countries, including in Germany where it held the number 1 slot for 46 weeks. She is one of the few authors to have had 3 novels on the New York Times bestseller list at the same time. A major film adaptation of Me Before You, starring Sam Clafin (The Hunger Games) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), is currently in production. Jojo lives in Essex with her husband and their three children. Praise for Me Before You: "Poignant...heartfelt...Me Before You, at it's heart, is about two people who properly listen to each other; it is something good." (The Independent on Sunday). "A disarmingly moving love story...a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling." (Publishers Weekly). "A compelling novel of life and death decisions and unlikely affections. It's magical and heartbreaking, but doesn't shy away from difficult emotional realities. Waterproof mascara essential." (Marie Claire). "When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it...An affair to remember." (Liesl Schillinger, The New York Times Book Review). "This truly beautiful story made us laugh, smile and sob like a baby - you simply have to read it." (Closer). "Heartbreaking, soul-searching and utterly compelling." (Easy Living). "Compelling, moving and absorbing. It's also a real weepie." (Daily Express). "Destined to be the novel that friends press upon each other more than any other next year, it is a tremendous example of what commercial fiction can do when in the hands of an expert. Moyes does a majestic job of conjuring a cast of characters who are charismatic, credible and utterly compelling; Lou and Will are a couple who readers will take to their hearts as they did One Day's Emma and Dex." (The Independent). "Funny, believable and heartbreaking, this is sure to be the weepy of 2012." (Woman's Own). "Poignant and beautifully written, this book will stay with you long after you've put it down." (Star Magazine). "A compelling portrait of an unlikely couple." (The Independent). "Me Before You is a page-turner that sucks the reader into caring about the fate of the heroine...By turns funny and moving but never predictable. The plot contains a number of surprises and raises thoughtful question." (USA Today). "A perceptive and moving tale." (The Independent). "Funny, surprising and heartbreaking, populated with characters who are affecting and amusing...This is a thought-provoking, thoroughly entertaining novel that captures the complexity of love." (People). "Beautifully written." (The Sun). 'Another powerful love story. A deftly plotted narrative populated with likeable engaging characters...a bittersweet story about love, learning and letting go. It's a tremendous read and I loved it." (Daily Mail).

Highly recommend and great for book club discussion. I could not put this book down, and finished it in one sitting. It was probably the most emotional book I've ever read. Will make you reflect on what you would do if you were in Wil's shoes, given the same situation. You truly realize that "you don't know what you've got til it's gone". Probably more enjoyed by female readers than males.

You can read a synopsis of the book online or on the back cover. I just want to say this is an unexpected and unusual story, but I quickly became involved with the characters and the situation. I loved it! I first read it when my daughter loaned me her copy, but I had to have a copy of my own. Highly recommend for anyone. We are going to read if for our book club and I expect some lively discussion. I will read this one again and again over time.

Publishers Weekly, 2012-10-08 In Moyes's (The Last Letter from Your Lover) disarmingly moving love story, Louisa Clark leads a routine existence: at 26, she's dully content with her job at the cafe in her small English town and with Patrick, her boyfriend of six years. But when the cafe closes, a job caring for a recently paralyzed man offers Lou better pay and, despite her lack of experience, she's hired. Lou's charge, Will Traynor, suffered a spinal cord injury when hit by a motorcycle and his raw frustration with quadriplegia makes the job almost unbearable for Lou. Will is quick-witted and sardonic, a powerhouse of a man in his former life (motorcycles; sky diving; important career in global business). While the two engage in occasional banter, Lou at first stays on only for the sake of her family, who desperately needs the money. But when she discovers that Will intends to end his own life, Lou makes it her mission to persuade him that life is still worth living. In the process of planning "adventures" like trips to the horse track-some of which illuminate Lou's own minor failings-Lou begins to understand the extent of Will's isolation; meanwhile, Will introduces Lou to ideas outside of her small existence. The end result is a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling. Agent: Sheila Crowley, Curtis Brown. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
