Nick Hornby is one of the authors everyone seemed to know and love when I started bookstagram but I had never heard of! To be honest this happened quite a lot but I've slowly come to recognise more and more authors over the past year!
Just like You is a modern look at relationships, families and political beliefs.
Joseph is shaking off the memory of his last date, a girl who ticked all the right boxes and also drove him up the wall.
On an average Saturday morning in a butcher's shop in North London, Lucy and Joseph meet on opposite sides of the counter. She is a teacher and mother of two, with a past she is trying to forget; he is an aspiring DJ with a wide-open future that maybe needs to start becoming more focused. Lucy and Joseph are opposites in almost all ways. Can something life-changing grow from uncommon ground?
I really enjoyed this - I’d never read anything by Nick Hornby before but I’d heard amazing things so it had a lot of hype to live up to! It covers a lot of topical themes and issues without making it feel forced or shoehorned in - it’s incredible!
