Book Review: This Song Will Save Your Life
About the Book:
Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski's strong suit. All throughout her life, she's been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up. Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets Vicky, a girl in a band who accepts her; Char, a cute, yet mysterious disc jockey; Pippa, a carefree spirit from England; and most importantly, a love for DJing.
About the Author:
Leila Sales is the author of the novels Mostly Good Girls and Past Perfect. She grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts, and graduated with a degree in psychology from the University of Chicago. Much like the characters in This Song Will Save Your Life, Leila regularly stays up too late and listens to music too loud. When she's not writing, she spends her time thinking about sleeping, kittens, chocolate, and the meaning of life. But mostly chocolate. Leila lives and writes in Brooklyn, New York, and works in children's book publishing.
The first time I read a Leila Sales novel was two years ago. I had ordered "Tonight the Streets are Ours" because the premise of that story felt oddly familiar. I was a little disappointed by the story. This Song Will Save Your Life kept popping up in my recommendations, because of my love for young adult fiction and my previous Leila Sales purchase.
If you're looking for a weekend read, then this is definitely one book worth testing out.
