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?


My Review

You know how with some books there's this instant pull, and you can't put the book down until you finish it? Well, that happened to me with this book. I was hooked up literally from the first sentence. Which by the way, caused me to stop and read it twice before I moved to the rest of the page. Here's the mentioned first sentence: “She ate her first needle when she was seven.” 
What the ...?! I don't know about you, but for me this was quite an intense start. 

Apart from the first sentence, I must say that this book to me is a masterpiece. Catching, thrilling, fast paced, beautiful,touching, and I can go on and name million other superlatives. Why? Simply because this book is so different from other New Adult books. The plot of this book was for me an undiscovered territory. It's not your typical New Adult book at all, no stereotypical characters and situations. It will most likely cause you to cry and not breath at some points in the story.

I fell in love with characters, especially Saylor. Saylor Grayson is super unique character, that makes pretty unpredictable decisions, and always surprises you. I honestly don't know, what I would do if I was in her place. Really, this girl is just one big trouble. But in this case, that is what makes this book so great.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the cover. It's super duper pretty. I think I will buy this book for my collection in paperback, just so I can look at it, and possibly decorate my dorm room with it next year, haha.

I don't really know, what else I should say about this book, how else I can describe how much I enjoyed this book. I was also very pleased that this book was written in psychological view for the most part. I think that is, again, one of the things that made this book unique. 

So, after all this praise, I must take of my hat, Ms. S.K. Falls. I will definitely look for some of your other books and add it to my TBR. This book touched my heart, made me cry and at some parts laugh too. As you probably assumed by my review, I can't give this book no less than 5 stars.

Author's Bio

SKFalls.jpgAdriana 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.
