Me Before You
Lou thought she had her life sorted out. Everything seems stable until she was laid off her job. Her world turned upside down when she couldn't get a job suitable for her. To make matters worse, she will soon become the breadwinner for her family. She was left with no choice but to take up the job offer to be Will Traynor's companion. Her only motivation is the rate per hour.
Arrogant Will had all one would ever wished for. He lived in the big city with even big dreams until he met an accident. He was unable to come to terms of his condition that he decided to just end his life. Over the time, Lou and Will eventually accepted each other and learned from each other. Lou's life took a complete turn with Will's determination to get her to live a fulfilling life like he did before the accident.
Her mission is to keep Will happy and belief in life. What she did not know is the love that is budding between them. Will has somehow accomplished his mission but will Lou ever meet hers?
p/s: Picked this up from my favourite local bookstore. Been on my wishlist. Love reading it. It took about 2-3 chapters to get into the story and then, to never putting the book down. I love the characters, the storyline and how everything seems to real but as always, I prefer a happier ending. ;) Ending of this story is very bitter and very sweet at the same time that I can't decide which is more. Anyhow, still a good book!
