Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
This novel, scheduled to be released as a movie, surrounds the life of a strong character, Louise (Lou), once she finds her niche. Finding something that she loves comes as a surprise, but Lou is a free-spirit, easily guided by kindness to people. Dealing with a poor family and a spoiled sister, Lou grows up taking care of everyone but herself. However, when she is hired to take care of Will, a quadriplegic, her life takes a turn. Once an active, if not selfish, handsome young man, Will was the victim of a pedestrian versus car accident. Lou comes on the scene as his family is trying to dissuade him from trying to end his life. In the beginning, Lou and Will are like oil and water; however, Lou's kind-kindheartedness wins out over time; however, Will's announcement will surely stun readers.
