The book we will be discussing is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Louisa is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life. She takes a badly needed job working for Will, who is wheelchair-bound after an accident and refuses to treat him with kid gloves. Will has always lived a huge life and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
Our February 4 book will be Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult. This novel weaves elephant behavior into a search for a missing mother. Teenager, Jenna Metcalf, was just three years old when her mother disappeared from an elephant sanctuary. Ten years later, she takes up the search for her mother, Alice, by studying Alice’s decade-old journals on grieving elephants. As the facts begin to come together – described in alternating chapters by Jenna, a psychic, a private detective, and Alice’s journals – it all heads toward a thrilling conclusion. And, yes, there is a big twist at the end.
