Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Absolutely stunning.  I have read some of Moyes’ work before, but I completely fell in love with this book.  When Louisa Clark starts to work for Will Trayner, who is a quadriplegic, Clark is faced with extremely complicated decisions when she finds out that Traynor wants to have medically assisted suicide.  The complexity of this book is brilliant, but not overwhelming.  It sounds like a very hard, sad book but the writing is very easy to read.  It will rip your heart out at times, but overall a very wonderfully written book.

Bookclubs:  There are so many issues that can be discussed, so it would be a perfect book club novel.

Age:  It is definitely an upper high school+ reading only because of the subject material.
