They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose.

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A Love Story for this generation, Me before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, “What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?”

Editorial Reviews

“Jojo Moyes has written the perfect modern love story. You will be astonished at what you feel…It’s that good. Read it now.”

Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author

Me Before You is a delicious surprise—funny and hopeful and heartbreaking, the kind of story that will keep you turning pages into the night.”

Eleanor Brown, New York Times bestselling author

“Some books make you stop and think, compel you to examine your own take on life or your position or stand on an issue. Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You will surprise you—it is impossible not to put yourself in the characters’ shoes…You will find yourself thinking about the choices you might make if life changed in an instant. I loved it.”

Lee Woodruff, New York Times bestselling author

“When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it; I wanted to reread it…Moyes disarms the reader with the normalcy of her voice. Her language is never lofty…This is a love story that’s eloquent not so much in its delivery as in its humanity.”

New York Times Book Review

Me Before You is one to read…Funny and moving but never predictable.”

USA Today

“An unlikely love story…To be devoured like candy, between tears.”

O, The Oprah Magazine

“Funny, surprising, and heartbreaking, populated with characters who are affecting and amusing…This is a thought-provoking, thoroughly entertaining novel that captures the complexity of love.”


Me Before You, at its heart, is about two people who properly listen to each other; it is something good.”

Independent (London)

“One of the year’s biggest word of mouth hits.” 

Associated Press

“A lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Humorous and romantic through and through.”


“This is uplift fiction at its best, with fully drawn characters making difficult choices.”
