Rating: 5 stars
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.
THE LOVE AFFAIR
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.
THE IMPOSSIBLE CHOICE
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.
Sing Me To Sleep is a beautiful, breathtaking novel that will simply blow you away. The story, while not completely original, takes you on a journey that is brilliant and unique. It is a story of growth and also one that might break your heart.
In Sing Me To Sleep, Angela Morrison plays with your emotions. At times, she had me in tears. Other moments I was absolutely shocked. Then there were the other times I was just happy, living the characters lives alongside of them. The story is so real, I felt I was alongside Beth, Scott, Derek, and the others.
Sing Me To Sleep allowed me to easily connect with every aspect of the book. The main character, Beth, has her music and the plot of the book is based around that. Music is something everyone can connect with, but me even more as it is in my life everyday.
The characters were another amazing aspect of this book. Beth was a very down to earth, real character. Her passion for her music just flew off the page. Scott was the adoring best friend that you couldn’t help but to love. Both Beth and Scott were so in love with the other, and both were oblivious to the fact of the other’s feelings. Derek was the dark mysterious boy that you never really got to know. He was one of the reasons you kept flipping pages, just hoping you’d hear more about him.
The end was a complete shocker, and I had no idea it was coming. When I finished reading, I felt like a deer in the headlights. Sing Me To Sleep is a book that outlived all my expectations. I’d recommend it to everyone.
