If you’re looking for a contemporary love story to tug on those heartstrings, look no further than Jojo Moyes’ amazing novel Me Before You. Our protagonist is Lou Clark — she’s just lost her job and instead of the pole dancing option given to her by her job counselor, she decides to sign on as a caregiver. Her new daily companion, Will, isn’t the most pleasant of men, but he has his reasons for not being excited about his life. As Lou tries to make the best of her situation, she and Will become friends. The more she learns the more she wants to prove to Will that life can be good no matter what your circumstances. Moyes’ also provides us with points of view from Will’s mother, Lou’s sister, and other characters to give a complete picture of the events throughout the book. A fantastic read from start to finish.
