Me Before You

by Jojo Moyes

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians

Bekka rated it ★★★★ and said, “This was a very emotional book! I always like a good cry. I liked this twist on the romance genre, with an unconventional plot. Even with the differences, however, there are a lot of typical elements of a good romance. I very much liked the main character, and thought she was quite well done. I also like the main romance interest, not quite as much as the girl, but he was an interesting change from the typical ‘boyfriend’ character. The plot was well done, if a bit predictable. The only thing I didn’t like were the short chapters told from a completely different character’s point of view—the way they were added to the story threw me out of the flow of the narrative. Other than that, this was an enjoyable read. It’s definitely a Girl Book! I would be interested to hear what readers of more conventional romances think of this one.”
