Waterstones Says

A mix-up at the gym leads two women to walk in each other's shoes - literally - in this characteristically witty and uplifting novel from the author of Me Before You.

Meet Sam. She's not got much, but she's grateful for what she has: a job she's just about clinging on to and a family who depend on her for everything. She knows she's one bad day away from losing it all - and just hopes today isn't it.

Meet Nisha. She's got everything she always dreamed of - and more: a phenomenally rich husband; an international lifestyle; and . . . she's just been locked out of all of it after her husband initiates divorce proceedings.

Sam and Nisha should never have crossed paths. But after a bag mix-up at the gym, their lives become intertwined - even as they spiral out of control.

Each blames the other as they feel increasingly invisible, forgotten, lost - and desperately alone.

But they're not.

No woman is an island. Look around. Family. Friends. Strangers.
Even the woman you believe just ruined your life might turn out to be your best friend.
Because together you can do anything - like take back what is yours.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This blast of a book throws two wildly different women together for a giddily joyful caper that reminds anyone who may have forgotten — don’t mess with a woman over 40 - Sunday Times, Books of the Year

The antidote to February that we all need. A blast of a book . . . There's something rather giddily joyful about this tale of women pulling together, and Moyes writes about their high jinks, tribulations and amorous entanglements with warmth and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour - THE TIMES 'BOOK OF THE MONTH'

Do shoes make the woman... or does the woman make the shoes? Jojo Moyes' new novel is a delightful reverse-Cinderella story of two women who seem polar opposites - until circumstance forces them to experience each other's lives. Nobody writes women the way Jojo Moyes does - recognizably real and complex and funny and flawed - which is what makes her novels an auto-buy for me - Jodi Picoult, #1 NYT bestselling author

Someone Elses Shoes is SO MUCH FUN. Beautiful about female friendship and brilliant on being a woman of a certain age who won't take any more sh*te! - MARIAN KEYES

A book we all need in our lives right now. A fabulous and funny romp - Woman & Home Book Club

Very few authors have the power to make you laugh on one page and cry on the next. Moyes is one of them - New York Times

A paean to women's solidarity wrapped up in a very funny revenge-fuelled caper - The Times

Riotously fun and an ode to strong female friendships - Prima

[A] captivating new blockbuster. Superb. Once you step into the lives of Sam and Nisha, you'll be racing through the pages, breathless to find out what happens next. It's a sassy strut of a novel, full of twists and high-adrenaline moments, but ultimately it's got heart too. The characters are relatable, memorable and engaging, and you'll be rooting for your favourites to end up walking tall - Daily Express

A warm, witty and uplifting novel and it's a joy to spend time with Jojo Moyes' flawed, likeable characters. Another winner from a fabulous author - Sunday Express

One of our absolute fave authors . . . This brilliant story is a sure-fire hit - Sun

Someone Else's Shoes is a fantastic novel about the power of female friendships that hugely resonates with me; I'm such a big fan of Jojo's work and of her brilliant, joyful writing. It was an honour to be asked to narrate the story and I hope listeners enjoy the audiobook as much as I enjoyed recording it - Daisy Ridley

Freaky Friday is all grown up in this heartfelt and heartwarming tale of two women in very different circumstances.... From the storyteller behind Me Before You comes a story of reinvention that just might inspire you to make a change yourself-just buy your own shoes - Good Housekeeping

Empathy and an extravagant plot collide in Moyes's big hug of a novel. Its real heart is the burgeoning friendship between two brilliantly realised but very different fortysomething women - Mail on Sunday

Charming ... Moyes is never short on her trademark clever observations ...[her] fans will have a ball - Publishers Weekly

Somehow heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time - Yours

Explores themes of female friendship, motherhood, ageing, love and disillusionment. Moyes brings her main characters - a unlikely group of women thrown together - to life, each as flawed as they are brilliant, and stronger together - Grazia

Something to get excited about . . . [The] most compelling and readable of novels, which will make you wonder what it's really like to walk in someone else's shoes - Glamour UK
