Notes: Keep tissues on hand for second half.
I was hesitant to read this, it didn't seem like something I'd enjoy just by reading the blurb.
I enjoyed it though! Louisa, the main character, wasn't annoying. I find so many female characters unrelatable.
The story is about a man named Will who is a quadriplegic. He was a world-traveling businessman until he was hit by a motorcycle and forced to move back into his parent's home. Louisa is hired by his parents to be a day-sitter and to try to cheer up Will who is having a hard time adjusting to his new (impaired) life.
It took time for Louisa to get Will to open up. Once he did, they got along well and it became Louisa's job to get him to realize that life wasn't completely over.
How does it end? Well, I won't say. There are moments of sadness but ultimately, I think everything came together nicely.
