Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, 369 pages

Will Traynor was a high flying corporate raider, adrenaline seeking adventurer and lover of the good life until the day two years ago when he was hit by a motorcycle and is now a quadriplegic, who can barely move one hand.

Louisa Clark just lost her job of six years as a waitress at a local eatery and needs to find another job because, at age 26, she still lives at home and helps her parents pay the bills.

Lou is hired by Will's Mom, Camilla, to be his caregiver from 8 am to 5 pm daily.  Will is not a happy man and doesn't want a babysitter, but Lou needs this job.

What starts as a very difficult working relationship turns into friendship and more.  When Lou finds out that Will doesn't want to live life as a quadriplegic she does everything she can to make Will see that his life is still worth living.  Will it be enough?  I am not telling.

Oh, this was a good book and I can't wait to discuss it in book club.
