All Elise ever wanted was to be normal; to fit in at school. But when her attempts to be more like the popular kids fail, she tries to commit suicide, but fails at that, too.
Now Elise just feels like her life is a big, hopeless mess—that is, until she accidentally stumbles upon a night club and meets a group of friends who happen to be just as weird as she is.
This is a young adult book that contains:
• Attempted suicide
• Profanity (b*tch, godd*mn, sh*t, and lesbo)
• Someone tries to take advantage of a drunken character
• Sexual references
• An underage character makes out heavily multiple times with an adult
• Sneaking out at night
• Lying to parents
• Teens drinking and smoking; one adult is a recovered alcoholic and drug addict
This Song Will Save Your Life is a gripping and sometimes depressing story about a girl struggling to accept herself, but in the end the message is hopeful and uplifting.
