4.0 out of 5 stars EPIC. [...], 6 Mar. 2014
This review is from: This Song Will Save Your Life (Kindle Edition)
I was sent this ARC ahead of my week placement with Pan Macmillan, I wasn't sure what tasks I'd be set surrounding 'This Song Will Save Your Life' so I started reading mid afternoon on the Sunday before I was due to start the placement. I literally devoured this book within 24 hours I completed it on the train in that morning. WOW!!! Leila sure has written a novel that will get her noticed in the UK and as I understand this is her first proper UK release and wow what a way to go. If this book doesn't hit a nerve with you then wow you have never had any issues in life. I immediately loved Elise she's a character that you can connect with so easily. I was deeply saddened by the fact that she felt she had to change who she is to fit in. No one should be made to feel that way. Elise hits rock bottom but one night on a solitary walk she discovers herself and she also makes friends. This is exactly what she needed, and this is what brings her out of the hell she thinks she's in. This story covers a number of issues that many teens especially will encounter, there are some rather dark passages where Elise contemplates ending her life, but there is also a lot of humour too. If you want to read something heartfelt and real then embrace This Song Will Save Your Life. I love the fact there is a playlist of songs at the back of the book and it also got me thinking of what songs have impacted my life and why. One that I can think of off the top of my head is My Way, recently when I was on holiday I heard an entertainer sing this song marvellously but just before the end I had to leave the room as I knew I was going to break down. My Way was a favourite of my grandad's and it was played at his funeral. It always seems to make me emotional.

Elise found everything she needed when she embraced the REAL her. The moral of this book is never stop being who you are. Those who love you will always love you no matter what. Now I would love to read some more from Leila.

Tell me why you deserve to read this book and I will personally send you my ARC. Be as creative and inventive as you like with your answers and please leave an email address that I can contact you on.
