How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?
Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.
Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . .

For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that brings. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.
I can honestly say, i didn't want to read this book for me it felt like having another book after Allegiant i didn't want to see the characters without Will and that is really stupid because it is a really good idea because now we can see how one decision changed everything in many peoples lives. I saw the film then decided i needed to know what happened after, what Lou does, and do things get better. I am so glad i read this book i was funny and sad and even shocking at times

Lou was just as good, if even better than the first book, because she was more confident and you could see a change one that Will brought to her. The decision she made that changed her relationship with her family and everyone around her. She stayed strong through everything that was thrown at her and for that she has become one of my favourite characters in this genre
I'm not going to say much about Sam because you really should make your mind up on him as you read but i would never be able to choose between Sam and Will so i truly think he is a worthy character and one that also deserves a happy ending.
There are so many more characters i want to talk about but they are so spoilery that i cant so i will just settle and say that you will be shocked, blown away and just down right flabbergasted at some of the new characters and the transformation of the old characters.

The story started of very sad and melancholic, i knew it wouldn't be all laughter and smiles but from where it finishes in Me Before You to the start of After You, so much has changed and that is sad as well because we see Lou struggling and then we see her go through so much and then the people closest to Will we see them and how their lives have now changed and i loved the story and by the end i knew what had to happen and just loved every moment of reading this book apart from some sections that made me burst into tears. For me it was a worthwhile read and one i wish i read straight after reading Me Before You, because it just helped with the closure of the first book.

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
