ARC BOOK REVIEW...Secret for a Song by S.K. Falls

Saylor Grayson makes herself sick. Literally.

She ate her first needle when she was seven. Now, at nineteen, she’s been kicked out of college for poisoning herself with laxatives. The shrinks call it Munchausen Syndrome. All Saylor knows is that when she’s ill, her normally distant mother pays attention and the doctors and nurses make her feel special.

Then she meets Drew Dean, the leader of a local support group for those with terminal diseases. When he mistakes her for a new member, Saylor knows she should correct him. But she can’t bring herself to, not after she’s welcomed into a new circle of friends. Friends who, like Drew, all have illnesses ready to claim their independence or their lives 

For the first time, Saylor finds out what it feels like to be in love, to have friends who genuinely care about her. But secrets have a way of revealing themselves. What will happen when Saylor’s is out?
Expected publication: June 2013
"Secret For A Song" is not a light read.  It's very deep and centers around heavy topics and issues.

Saylor, what a cool name btw,  basically hurts herself to gain attention.  How messed up is that?

She has no support system or foundation so she goes through extremes to try to receive love and care since deep down she's lonely and uncared for.  I could really feel myself reeling for Saylor and her deep detachment from the one person who is supposed to love and care for her the most.

When she is mistaken to be a member of a local support group for terminal diseases, Saylor feels as if her existence finally makes sense or matters to people for once in her life and also experiences feelings of first love with the leader of the group, Drew.

But what will happen when Saylor's secrets and lies are revealed?  How will the ones she's grown such a heavy bond with react to her?  What will happen with her budding relationship with Drew?  And most of all, what will become of Saylor?

"Secret For A Song" is a brilliant and emotional read with lovely themes of love, dreams, and hope, as well as claiming/making something of yourself on your own.

A definite must read!!
