Me Before YouMe Before You by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This must-read will anger some, sadden all, and hopefully cause its readers to live outside of themselves. It is a lopsided love story majorly conflicted, especially so depending upon one’s spiritual and religious beliefs. But to explain why reveals more than I want to share about its plot or ending. So let me just say the story of Lou Clark, a 26-year-old working class girl who becomes the care assistant to Will Traynor, a victim of quadriplegia in the wake of a motorbike accident, is deserving of the high ratings it has received. Moyes paints life as a quadriplegic with such poignancy, your heart feels as though it will be crushed by the weight of the burden this once vibrant, still handsome man must endure. It is a book about respect, life, living, and changing course when all you find yourself doing is running around in circles or living with stupid or no goal in mind.
