This book will restore my faith in the YA genre -

This Song Will Save Your Life - Leila Sales

This book is #2 in my book challenge. (Randomly picking books from my kindle to read without first reading the posted reviews or the summary). I really liked it. I was hesitant at first because YA and I were on a break, but it was really good. 


I cried a few times. I had back flashes to my own teen years more than a few times. I was a little disappointed with the character, Char, but after sighing and pulling up my big girl panties, I realized that was the way his character had to be. It would not have worked if it went any other way. Elise was written remarkably well because for a character that I had so little in common with, I felt like we shared a lot anyway. 


So, I just went back to GR to see how everyone else rated this book. And it has almost all 4 and 5 star ratings. That would have scared me if I looked there before reading it. I may have went in to it thinking I would hate it based solely on that. 


In the Going in Blind Challenge, I'm two for two. Liking this idea more and more.
