*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

'A disarmingly moving love story . . . a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling' - Publishers Weekly

Jojo Moyes has done it again with this funny, touching tale that is impossible to put down. Make sure you have a box of tissues to hand! ( Candis)

When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it. Which might seem perverse if you know that for most of the last hundred pages I was dissolved in tears. Jojo Moyes, the writer who produced this emotional typhoon, knows very well that Me Before You . . . is a 'real weepy'. Moyes's story provokes tears that are redemptive, the opposite of gratuitous. Some situations, she forces the reader to recognise, really are worth crying over . . . An affair to remember ( Liesl Schillinger, The New York Times Book Review)

At last, a new Moyes novel - and it's a triumph. Her story of love blossoming in the most unlikely of ways packs such an emotional punch, you'll need a box of tissues ( Elle)

Me Before You is compelling reading...a profound, fundamental, thought-provoking conundrum lies at the heart of the story, a huge moral dilemma, explored with great fictional finesse. Devotees of Jojo Moyes and newcomers alike will settle into this entertaining book with gusto ( Sunday Express)

Romantic, thought-provoking tear-jerker than you won't be able to put down ( Woman & Home)

Summary: Praise for ME BEFORE YOU: "When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it. . . . Moyes's story provokes tears that are redemptive, the opposite of gratuitous. Some situations, she forces the reader to recognize, really are worth crying over. . . . with Lou and Will she has created an affair to remember." New York Times Book Review , Liesl Schillinger "An unlikely love story . . . To be devoured like candy, between tears." O, The Oprah Magazine "ME BEORE YOU is one you should read. After finishing Jojo Moyes'' ME BEORE YOU, you grasp why the novel, a word-of-mouth sensation from Britain, has been sold to 28 countries. . . . by turns funny and moving but never predictable." USA Today (****) "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 Magazine "READ IT AND WEEP: Heartbreak collides with humor in Jojo Moyes's Me Before You , about the romance between a quadriplegic and his hired caregiver." Good Housekeeping "Masterful . . . a heartbreaker in the best sense . . . ME BEFORE YOU is achingly hard to read at moments, and yet such a joy." New York Daily News "There are books that you cannot put down. There are also books where you become so invested in the characters, you force yourself to stop reading to prolong the experience because you don''t want the story to end, and that''s what can happen when you read Jojo Moyes'' latest book, Me Before You . . . . Moyes writes well-developed characters, and it''s impossible not to care about them. You''ll find yourself laughing, smiling, feeling angry and, yes, crying. My only suggestion: Me Before You should be sold with a pack of tissues." The Associated Press "Jojo Moyes has written the perfect modern love story. You will be astonished at what you feel, and what you hope for when you are forced to face the possibility of your own dreams. It''s that good. Read it now." Adriana Trigiani , New York Times bestselling author of The Shoemaker''s Wife "ME BEFORE YOU is a delicious surprisefunny and hopeful and heartbreaking, the kind of story that will keep you turning pages into the night. Lou Clark and Will Traynor will capture your heart and linger there long after their story has ended." Eleanor Brown , New York Times bestselling author of The Weird Sisters "Some books make you stop and think, compel you to examine your own take on life or your position or stand on an issue. Jojo Moyes' ME BEFORE YOU will surprise youit is impossible not to put yourself in the characters' shoes and you will find yourself thinking about the choices you might make if life changed in an instant. I loved it." Lee Woodruff , New York Times bestselling author of Those We Love Most "A lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling." Publishers Weekly , starred review "Moyes' twisting, turning, heartbreaking novel raises provocative moral questions while developing a truly unique relationship between two people brought together by chance. With shades of David Nicholls' beloved One Day , Me Before You is the kind of book you simply can't put downeven when you realize you don't want to see it end. . . . A big-hearted, beautifully written story that teaches us it is never too late to truly start living." BookPage "Moyes' latest is made heartwarming, thanks to the vibrancy of its main characters, both of whom will keep readers on their toes with their chemistry and witty repartee. . . .humorous and romantic through and through."
