Review: Sing me to Sleep

Title: Sing Me To Sleep

Author: Angela Morrison

Published: Razorbill, 2010


Beth has always been “The Beast”—that’s what everyone at school calls her because of her awkward height, facial scars, and thick glasses. Beth’s only friend is geeky, golden-haired Scott. That is, until she’s selected to be her choir’s soprano soloist, and receives the makeover that will change her life forever.
When Beth’s choir travels to Switzerland, she meets Derek: pale, brooding, totally dreamy. Derek’s untethered passion—for music, and for Beth—leaves her breathless. Because in Derek’s eyes? She’s not The Beast, she’s The Beauty.
When Beth comes home, Scott, her best friend in the world, makes a confession that leaves her completely torn. Should she stand by sweet, steady Scott or follow the dangerous, intense new feelings she has for Derek?
The closer Beth gets to Derek, the further away he seems. Then Beth discovers that Derek’s been hiding a dark secret from her …one that could shatter everything.

Review: Sing Me To Sleep is so heart-wrenching and so beautiful. You will feel so bad for Beth because of how she feels about herself and how others treat her.
Angela has written such a beautiful and amazing tale. I absolutely love her work and I know that if you love contemporary fiction with a beautiful romance story you will love Sing Me To Sleep.
I loved this book it was totally amazing and I had to have a box of tissues with me because at times I was tearing up a little.
Definitely check it out because Sing Me To Sleep is truly moving and so beautiful. A worthwhile read, do not miss out!!!
