This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (Review)


“Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.”

Elise has spent her whole life being bullied. She tries to fit in, and tries to make friends but it just never works. One night she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets a group of people who change her life, and she eventually learns to accept herself.

This was a lovely little read. It is all about acceptance. It is a hugely relatable book if you have ever experienced bullying. Even if you don’t have a passion for music, it is still relatable.

Elise has some great character development. She has a great passion for music, and she uses that passion to DJ and to give her love of music to other people, and help them have a great night.

There were some great characters, who all helped make Elise the person she is, who helped accept her for herself. Vicky was a favourite. She seemed so uplifting and she was a true friend to Elise. I wasn’t a huge fan of Pippa for a little part of the book, but she eventually came around and lost her hate for Elise. I liked Char, but I loved the fact that Elise walked away from him.

Overall, a lovely and uplifting read that shows that being accepted by yourself is the most important thing.

MY RATING: ★★★★☆
