Listen to JoJo Moyes’ exclusive short story ‘Lou in Lockdown’.

By June 10, 2020Authors, News

JoJo Moyes has written an exclusive story for Penguin.co.uk featuring her Me Before You character ‘Lou’.

Louisa is in lockdown like the rest of us and her experience may be pretty relatable…

“As the weeks passed I had gone from a state of blind panic, through anxiety, restlessness, rage and had entered something like acceptance. It was like Kubler-Ross’s stages of grief, but with four carb-heavy meals a day and Mum spraying anti-bac on anyone who came within six feet of her. Even indoors.”

As honest and engaging as always, JoJo Moyes’ character of Lou is staying with her parents, away from her love Sam, which many of us can also relate to.

“Some days I felt I only existed for the moments we could speak to each other.

I miss you.

I miss you.

I miss you too.

Sometimes it felt as if that was all we said to each other.”
