Review: Sing me to Sleep by Morrison

Sing Me to SleepSing Me to Sleep by Angela Morrison

Link goes to and teaser from

"THE TRANSFORMATION 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."

*My short but sweet review*

         This book is hard to translate into a review. On one hand I really liked it, the writing was good, and it was fun to watch Beth blossom. There were two great guys fighting for her, and it was emotional. But on the other hand, it could have been so much more with a hundred or two more pages.
      I am glad though, that there is more to this story than just romance. They have singing and their choirs, and school, which is more like reality. The romance is heartbreaking though. We have Scott who has loved her even when her looks and attitude towards herself was horrid, and he is the constant. Then there is Derek who loves her voice, and tries to protect her from the darker side of his life.
      Morrison sucked me in, making really invest in these characters, and she broke my heart with the same.

I would love to hear what you think, and if you have written a review, link it and I will read and review.

  9. I like Beauty and the Beast-type books and books where you "invest" in the characters. It sounds like a box of tissues needs to be handy when reading this book. Thanks for the great review!
