Hello Jojo,
who or what inspired you to write this book?

@Flatter

Guten tag! I was inspired to write this book after hearing a news story on the radio about a young quadriplegic man who had persuaded his parents to help him end his life. I couldn't understand what parent would do this. But the more I read about his story the more I had to realise it wasn't a black and white issue. Basically the ideas I feel will make novels are the ones that won't leave your head - in this case, the questions: What would I have done if I was that parent? And: what would I have done if I were him?

I did hear about Intouchables, when my own book first came out in England. And I didn't want to see it, because I had heard they were similar. Then I was on a plane to New York and it was on the inflight entertainment system, so I watched it - and I loved it. I think there are some similarities, but I think they are very different. As to the research, I had some personal experience of what it is like to care for someone who needs 24 hr care. But I also spoke to quadriplegics and their carers. One of the best things about the book has been how many have contacted me since saying that it reflected their lives.

Dear Jojo,
first of all let me congratulate you for this breathtaking book! Thank you very much, it was one of the best reading experiences I have had for a long time!
My question is:
Why didn't you want Will to get his own chapter?

Dear Jojo,

I feel as if I have lost a friend, since finishing your novel.
Is there any book that has accompanied you (if just in your thoughts) for many many years?

In my case, there are really only few very special and therefore very "faithful" stories, that haunt my mind although reading them is way back .. "Ein ganzes halbes Jahr" is one of them.

I'm afraid my English is a bit rusty, but I do hope the main message comes out clear: Thank you for this touching, heartwarming story. Thank you for letting us get to know Lou and Will. Thank you for letting us find ourselves in them.

@JojoMoyes,

Hello Jojo, thank you for your emotional book and that you take time to respond to some questions! I would like to know, why you chose not to have a chapter told by any of Lou's parents? And why did the other characters "only" got one chapter to tell their perspective? Thanks!
