Twenty-six-year-old Louisa Clark is colorful, funny, rather hapless, and in desperate need of work. After a disappointing job search, she is eventually hired by the mother of Will Traynor, a depressed quadriplegic, to be his caretaker. The two get off to a rocky start, but when Louisa learns that Will intends to end his life, she makes it her mission to change his mind.
Me Before You is a kick in the stomach. Jojo Moyes took me for a funny, beautiful, emotional ride and then left me, a puddle of tears, a mass of shaking sobs to be dealt with by my unsuspecting husband. Thanks a lot, Jojo. Sorry, Kyle (aforementioned husband).
And as I write this, Me Before You, the movie, is just waiting to be released in theaters, so I’ll have another two hours of being a sniveling mess to look forward to.
