Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose
Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.
Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
I have been told that this was a weepy, I will agree that it is. But I never cried as I kinda guessed what the story line was heading to. This was my 1st Jojo Moyes and I don't think it'll be my last.
It was good between Louisa and Will. The way they keep each other laughing and going through every day life. You kinda get the feeling of what happens in the story. What each character has to contend with as well.
