Secret For A Song - Book Tour

Secret for a Song  by S.K. Falls
Publication date: June 3rd, 2013
Genre: NA Coming-of-Age

Synopsis:
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?




Review :

Wow.

This book took me a few days to process and understand, not because it was bad but because it was just that good. This is literally like nothing I have read before and I want to thank the author for giving that to us in such a magnificent manner. 

Be prepared for Sadness, Pain, Lies and deceit. No this isn't your typical romance with a HEA but trust me that will not matter in the slightest.

The blurb tells of of Saylor someone who craves, needs and demands attention the only way she know how - By making herself ill. Her parents don't seem to care about her an her home life is less than perfect, to top it off she has something called 'Munchausen Syndrome' that compels her to seek attention the only  way she knows how.

At times you will want to hate and despise Saylor but you are compelled to read more and find out her motives and what she will do next, it does take a while but you will warm to her and being to empathise with her character and that was something I loved about the book - The author creating a truly questionable character and making you understand her.

This book will make you angry and upset in parts but isn't that a sign of a truly good book, something that makes you feel and react? 

I don't want to give too much away about this book as I feel it is very important for you to go through it yourself and give it the chance it deserves.

4/5 stars.

AUTHOR BIO

Adriana Ryan is the pen name of writer S.K. Falls.


A huge fan of spooky stuff and shoes, I enjoy alternately hitting up the outlet malls and historic graveyards in Charleston, SC where I live and imbibe coffee. My husband and two small children seem not to mind when I hastily scribble novel lines on stray limbs in the absence of notepads.


Since no writer’s biography is complete without mention of her menagerie of animals, you should know I have one dog that doubles as a footstool, a second that functions as a vacuum cleaner, and a cat that ensures I never forget that my hands are, first and foremost, for pouring cat food.
