What will happen when Saylor’s is out?

This book ins honestly like nothing I've read before.  I've never even heard of Munchausen Syndrome until I read this book.  Secret for a Song takes us into a world of the mentally and physically ill, a world that I haven't read much about honestly.

Saylor Grayson has MS and loves the attention of being sick.  She is back living at home with her never there father and her distant mother.  She has to see a psychologist because of her illness and ends up volunteering in the hospital where she meets Zee and Drew.

Saylor felt so real to me.  I felt like I really knew her.  I knew everything going on inside her head, how she felt, everything.  The writing was so extraordinary that I could do all of these things.  I've never actually met anyone at all like Saylor and she was such a unique person.  I also loved Drew. He was so sweet and caring and just the freaking best.

The plot happened at just the right pace and honestly left me at tears at the end.  I couldn't believe what happened and I promise I won't spoil it for you.  But I can guarantee you will at least tear up.  The environment that Falls created is so real that I felt like I was there. There were some things at the end that Falls really didn't tie up so that is why I'm giving it a 4 star review.

I've never really read NA books but the genre doesn't seem as bad as I thought it would be so I'll have to open up to some other NA books.  Read this!!!




  1. I'd heard of Munchausen Syndrome when I was pregnant (I guess it can be common when you're pregnant) but I've never read much about it so I'm really curious about this book! Great review! :)

  2. Thank you so much for such an awesome review! :)
