Product description

A "New York Times" bestseller--with more than one million copies sold--by the author of "The Girl You Left Behind" 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?"

This is a thought-provoking, thoroughly entertaining novel that captures the complexity of love" --"People Magazine" "Masterful . . . a heartbreaker in the best sense . . . "Me Before You" is achingly hard to read at moments, and yet such a joy." --"New York Daily News" "READ IT AND WEEP: Heartbreak collides with humor in Jojo Moyes's "Me Before You."" --"Good Housekeeping" "There are books that you cannot put down. There are also books where you become so invested in the characters, you force yourself to stop reading to prolong the experience because you don't want the story to end, and that's what can happen when you read Jojo Moyes' latest book, "Me Before You." . . . You'll find yourself laughing, smiling, feeling angry and, yes, crying.
