"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 a motorcycle 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?

It's Never Too Late To Start Living

Will was a wealthy and successful businessman who climbed mountains and parachuted out of airplanes in his spare time, that is until he was struck by a motorcycle which left him paraplegic. Lou was a quirky British lass who had just lost her job at the local coffee shop, but had no plans for herself other than to live at home and watch TV with her parents, that is until Will's mother hired her to be his caregiver and companion. In spite of Will's acerbic tongue and mood swings, Lou refused to treat him with kid gloves. Upon the realization that he had attempted to take his own life, Lou sets about a plan to show Will that life is worth living. The result is an unexpected love affair with a heartbreaking ending. An ending that is hopeful and thought-provoking, not at all schmaltzy or predictable.


I can't remember the last book I read that had me laughing out loud on one page and crying on the next. Me Before You is that rare book that takes you through so many emotions, but effortlessly and flawlessly. It's a book that teaches you that it's never too late to start living.
