    review taken from One Book At A Time http://onebooktime.blogspot.com

    I was feeling just so-so with this book for most of it. I felt sorry for Beth and what she had to endure at the hands of her classmates. I was never really sure if she was lacking in self esteem or just truly believed she was "The Beast." Her choir seemed to be her only real outlet and she was content to be part of the background. When she proved she desired the solo spot, I thought good for her. But, I wasn't sure I agreed with the makeover. It was almost like she enjoyed the attention. Either that or she thought that no matter what they did to her, she would still be "The Beast." From the appearance of Derek, I wasn't sure I liked him. I knew he was hiding something, and it's didn't take me long to figure out what the true nature of that might be. But, I didn't like the way he treated Beth. And with her being so new to the attention of boys, it never set well with me. But, for some reason, then ending absolutely touched me. All of a sudden the entire story made sense, even if I still didn't like Derek's actions. I found myself in tears (I might be an over sensitive person though). I devoured the last 75 or so pages, and found myself think what a beautiful ending. Which was a pretty different reaction from the beginning of the book. I would recommend this and if you find yourself wanting to put it down at first, keep going. Then end was completely worth it.

    Sing Me To Sleep Review from www.talkmusebanter.blogspot.com

    I have to be honest. I kept putting off reviewing this book.

    Why?

    'Cos it was so emotionally overwhelming.


    I was blown away by Taken By Storm and I just had to read Angela Morrison's sophomore outing. Taken By Storm had dual PoVs -- that of Michael and Leesie's. In Sing Me To Sleep, it's just Beth - the seventeen year old girl bullied everyday single day of her life. When a certain Meadow and her mom wave their magic wands Beth the Beast transforms to Beth the Beauty and wins the heart of David - star of the Amabile Boy's Choir (I swear, choir boys have never been hotter!). If you're thinking Cinderella, think again.


    Because...well, you need to read it to find out.


    I'm in love with Angela Morrison's writing. It's poetic, lyrical and so beautiful. Every word, every phrase, every line touches you. More than a writer, I think she's a brilliant student of human emotions. She touches upon a lot of aspects of a teen's life --bullying, friendship, love, loss, self-discovery.

    Beth's lyrics are splattered throughout the book, giving us a deeper glimpse into her mind, making her so much more relatable. I thought the subtle Phantom Of The Opera parallel running alongside added an interesting twist to the story.


    I'll go back to what I said before. Sing Me To Sleep is such a moving story, both luminous and heart-wrenching, it kept me thinking days after and I needed sometime to detach myself from it, before I could write about it. It made me laugh. It made me angry. It made me smile. And it made me bawl my eyes out.

    Yes, this is stuff that fantastic YA fiction is made of. Wow.
