Just Like You
Tender. Nick Hornby offers up for readers a novel titled, Just Like You, a romance overflowing with tenderness. The couple is an unlikely match: 42-year-old Lucy and 22-year-old Joseph. She’s a White, divorced mother of two boys. He’s a Black aspiring musician who first met her when he worked in the local butcher shop. Love can overcome lots of obstacles, and the use of text messages in the narrative highlights the age difference between the protagonists. I was receptive for a big-hearted story, and this novel fit the bill perfectly. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Just Like You from amazon.com.
