Book Review of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes



The first book that I read by Jojo Moyes was The Girl You Left Behind, which captivated me. So, I had to read Me Before You. This book is about a girl, Louisa, who loses her job at a tea shop and is in desperate need of employment to help her family. She accepts a temporary 6-month position as a caregiver to a quadriplegic, Will Traynor. Louisa & Will are complete opposites and the first few weeks of them knowing each other, they truly hated each other so much that Louisa was ready to quit. Slowly and gradually they built an extremely touching relationship. Louisa gave Will happiness that he hadn't felt in a long time and Will showed Louisa what she was missing in life. They changed each other in extraordinary ways. This is a truly uplifting story.
