Publisher's Summary

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 her 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?

One of the best

I felt a deep connection with each of the characters, empathy for each perspective. I believe that Jo Jo is a literary genius who has researched, and likely experienced this caregiver/receiver situation to the nth. I love the way she respected the varied views and shared the insights of those who live this life and want others to benefit from their mutual support. I really felt as if she told the story from the inside out.

This was an incredible book!!! I always rate the books I listen using the stars. This is the first I have gone beyond the stars. The story along with the performance was superb. I don’t want to give anything away, but this is absolutely not a book/performance to be missed!!!

AMAZING heartbreak just what i needed

I loved this story the most of all the books I have read the past year using audible and kindle. The book was by far, so much better than the movie because of the heartbreak it created in me! I'm about halfway through the sequel to the book also
