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 and perfect for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, 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? From the Trade Paperback edition.

"I went into this book blind, I had no idea that this book is gonna hurt me :/ I’m only giving it 3 stars cuz I felt like the characters are kind of annoying. I don’t understand the point of multiple POVs. And while I understand Will, I don’t agree with him. Overall, still a good read for me. Apparently they made it into a movie so I’m gonna watch it now."
"Oh my gosh, this book is heartbreaking but also just amazing. It is a tough topic to think about but it is so intriguing to see this viewpoint. I also really love Louisa, “Lou”, and how there was such beauty between Will and her. Not to mention, Will’s personality is rather enjoyable as well. The story may have been sad but I still think it develops so nicely and there is also humor and love. I think it is definitely worth the read."
"This book shattered me. Like it genuinely made me unsteady. If you need a book to cry over, this is perfect. Every page held me captive and had me sobbing. 4.9/5 the only bad thing I could say about it is that... Actually no, I can't think of anything bad about it specifically, but I have read better books. But Booktok didn't let me down on this one. I loved it, I really did. "
"This was a really fun book. The main character was very quirky and dense at times but that is why it made the two people as great as they were they needed each other to meet in the middle I suppose of their two personalities. It was interesting learning about a quads life and what they have to go through. It made me rethink what I would want to do if I was in that position. I think this book was a stepping stone to me though into the next one because I enjoyed it a great deal more."
