Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never 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? -- Pamela Dorman Books
Last year, I reviewed a wonderful novel called THE LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER by Jojo Moyes. I was extremely impressed with Ms. Moyes' storytelling abilities, and I knew I wanted to read more by this talented author. I was excited to learn that she has a new novel called ME BEFORE YOU which comes out later this month. I received an advance copy at this year's BEA and can't wait to read (and review) it within the next few weeks.
And now for some great news... thanks to the publisher, I have a galley of ME BEFORE YOU and a beautiful poster to share with one lucky reader. To enter, just fill out the form below before December 15th at 11:59 p.m. ET. I will randomly select and notify the winner the following day.
