Me Before You

Me Before YouMe Before You by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When the diner where Louisa Clark works closes and she loses her job, she tries a few unpalatable positions (including one at a chicken factory) before finding a position as a caretaker for a quadraplegic man.  Will Traynor had led a big life before he was hit by a motorcycle and all but died.  He's resentful of the remnants of his life, and hates relying on others for every aspect of his care.  Louisa gradually warms to him, and this is the tale of their relationship.

It's also the story of Louisa's family and their various relationships, and of her boyfriend and how she fits in (or doesn't) with his circle of friends. It's about loners and dreamers and hope and fear.
