Praise for Just Like You:

“Readers may think they know how the plot will resolve, but one of the pleasures of Just Like You is how skillfully Hornby takes his unlikely lovers, and the novel, to a conclusion that’s both convincing and surprising.” —The Washington Post

“Hornby covers the issues of the day with snappy take-no prisoners commentary. . . . As these scenes build toward a surprising, well-earned ending, Hornby continues to ask: Should we choose someone just like us, or take a risk?” —The Boston Globe
“With all the staples of a classic Hornby tale—humor, heart, and emotion—Just Like You is the unexpected love story you need to read right now.” —E! News
“His most surprising courtship yet.” —Entertainment Weekly
“A sweet and funny testament to the wonderful things that happen when you allow yourself to follow your heart.” —Real Simple

“This bighearted book is all about the beautiful unpredictability of love.” —POPSUGAR

“A charming—and sharp—love story about what it means to fall for someone who is your polar opposite.” —Sunday Telegraph (London)

“Sparkles with tip-top dialogue and pin-sharp comic timing.” —Daily Mail (London)

“Frequently funny, consistently engaging . . . it has great warmth in its heart.” —The Observer (London)

“This is in every regard a Nick Hornby novel—funny, precise, clever, and pointed—but it adds the element of surprise and the great charm of being a love story perfectly attuned to the strange days we’re currently inhabiting.” Vogue

“Another unputdownable story of love and heartbreak.” —Harper’s Bazaar 

“In this age of lockdowns and social distancing, the novel asks timely questions about how people manage to connect when confronted with seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Sometimes, this brutally funny novel suggests, the perfect match might be the person who’s utterly unlike you.” —The Millions 
“Effervescent with chemistry and quick dialogue.” —Booklist
“A hopeful balm for our unsettled postpandemic times.” —Library Journal (starred review)
“Hornby lives up to his reputation as bard of the everyday in this thoughtful romance that crosses lines of race, age, and class. . . . Hornby is good company on the page and offers insights on his characters with aplomb, demonstrating an investment in each of their voices and an interest in the forces that draw people to one another. This is great fun.” —Publishers Weekly
“Hornby is as charming as ever in this nimble, optimistic take on the social novel.” —Kirkus Reviews
