Will needed Lou as much as she needed him, but will her love be enough to save his life?
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 teashop 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.

You might have seen the film, but we promise the book is better - you won't be able to forget quirky Lou's joruney with Will as she becomes his caregiver and their relationship blossoms. You will be needing tissues * Living North * Poignant . . . heartfelt . . . Me Before You, at it's heart, is about two people who properly listen to each other; it is something good * The Independent on Sunday * Another powerful love story. A deftly plotted narrative populated with likeable engaging characters . . . a bittersweet story about love, learning and letting go. It's a tremendous read and I loved it * Daily Mail * When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it . . . An affair to remember * The New York Times Book Review * At last, a new Moyes novel - and it's a triumph. Her story of love blossoming in the most unlikely of ways packs such an emotional punch, you'll need a box of tissues * Elle * Compelling, moving and absorbing. It's also a real weepie * Daily Express * Keep the tissues close as Jojo Moyes returns with Me Before You, a heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting tale about the relationship between an embittered quadriplegic man and the carer who is trying to give him a reason to live * Good Housekeeping * A compelling novel of life and death decisions and unlikely affections. It's magical and heartbreaking, but doesn't shy away from difficult emotional realities. Waterproof mascara essential * Marie Claire * A disarmingly moving love story . . . a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling * Publishers Weekly * This truly beautiful story made us laugh, smile and sob like a baby - you simply have to read it * Closer * Heartbreaking, soul-searching and utterly compelling * Easy Living * Destined to be the novel that friends press upon each other more than any other next year, it is a tremendous example of what commercial fiction can do when in the hands of an expert.

Make sure you have a box of tissues to hand! * Candis * When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it. Which might seem perverse if you know that for most of the last hundred pages I was dissolved in tears. Jojo Moyes, the writer who produced this emotional typhoon, knows very well that Me Before You . . . is a 'real weepy'. Moyes's story provokes tears that are redemptive, the opposite of gratuitous. Some situations, she forces the reader to recognise, really are worth crying over . . . An affair to remember * Liesl Schillinger, The New York Times Book Review * Jojo Moyes's poignantly romantic tales have readers streaming their way through boxes of Kleenex . . .
