Secret for a Song

Secret For a Song by S.K. Falls

Secret For a Song is not a NA for the faint of heart.  This book has to do with serious medical conditions, lying, and deceit.  I could not sympathize with the mail character in this book.  I can not ever call her a heroine because she is not.  Her lies and deceit had me almost putting down this book.

I know that Munchausen is a serious disease, but she should have just came out and said that is what she had instead of MS.  It took everything I had to get through this book because of Saylor.  I love the name though. 

Drew and his crew of misfits is what I read the book for.  The power to fight their diseases and the public opinion was inspiring.

The writing style was not bad, I just despised some characters and the plot but the cover was good.


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?
