Jo Jo Moyes' book "Me Before You"
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 barely 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.
A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?
As I sat reading this book last night, I was thinking to myself.. this is an awesome book. I couldn't put it down! Twenty-six year old Lou loses her job at a cafe after six years. She's kind of at loose ends, doesn't know what to do with herself. She lives with her parents and grandpa in England, and everyone just barely scraping by. She is offered a job as a companion to a man who was hit by a motorcycle and is now a quadriplegic. Lou is a pretty upbeat, cheery, chatty type of person and Will's mother thinks she will help Will to perk him up. After leading a very active lifestyle, the accident has left him with no will to live. Lou starts getting him out and about, outside for picnics and traveling to music venues and such.
Venting after this.
OMG the end of this book ticked me off so bad.. Actually, I have to admit, I couldn't handle the suspense so when I was halfway through the book, I flipped to the back. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!! I quit reading it and refuse to pick it back up
