Amazing does not even describe this book. I read Me Before You by Jojo Moyers a few months ago, and I still think about it.
This story follows the life of Lou and Will. Lou’s boss shuts down the cafe she worked at and she loses her job. After trying a few positions and going to several different interviews, she answers an ad for a care assistant.
After thinking she completely bombed the interview, Lou gets the job. She is surprised to find the man she is caring for is not only young, but handsome. Will was hit by a car that left him quadriplegic. Since his accident he has a negative outlook on life. He has lost his will to live.
Will and Lou don’t get along in the beginning. Lou is able to chip away at Will’s walls. They are able to build a beautiful friendship and each began to love each other in their own ways.
Lou finds out that her job is more than just to be a care giver to Will. Will her love be enough? That is the question and the answer will unfold as you read it. This story is one of love and, I think, a coming of age story. Make sure you have some tissues because the story is going to take you for an emotional roller coaster ride.
This is one of the best books I have ever read. The story and characters still cross my mind months later. I look forward to reading more of her books. I would give this story a solid 10/10.
