Our January top pick in fiction is Jojo Moyes‘ Me Before You. In the novel, 27-year-old Louisa Clark is forced to take the first job she can find after she is laid off, becoming a caretaker/babysitter for a bitter and wealthy quadriplegic Will Traynor.
Though their relationship gets off to a rough start, Louisa comes to care for Will, whom she realizes cannot cope with the dependence his injury requires. Desperate to save Will’s life, Louisa finds that her own life is changed.
