There are so many great. quotable moments in this book, as main character Elise struggles with finding her identity and trying to learn the social language that she just can't interpret.
The book is a little dark, and deals with themes of suicide and bullying. While listening to this book I kept thinking of Stephen King's quote about not trusting anyone who says they loved high school. I do believe that the things that make you interesting as an adult can be the thing that made you a target of ridicule in school.
I loved how real Elise was, how complicated and oblivious she could be, and how she could be confident and fearless in some aspects of her life, while completely inept and scared in others areas. Her actions sometimes had me shaking my head, but I loved her.
This Song Will Save Your Life is a rare YA book in the fact that Elise's parents play a big role, and you can see the way their parenting would result in who Elise is.
I would definitely recommend this book to readers of all ages (especially if you're a lover of music and have Cure and Joy Division in your own playlist).
Loved the narration, which I felt captured Elise perfectly.
