Sing Me To Sleep

By Angela Morrison


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 Thoughts: Whoa. I have read Morrison's previous book, Taken by Storm and while I gave it 4 cupcakes, Sing Me To Sleep deserves 5 cupcakes all the way! We meet Beth who is called The Beast. Everyone thinks she is ugly, nasty, etc. but I never saw her that way at all. She was beautiful inside and she had a great soul. We meet Scott who is Beth's best friend and always has been. They both have feelings for each other but are too scared to act upon them. We meet Derek who is from another town and also doing the choir field trip Beth goes on. By this time Beth has had a makeover and Derek only sees the "new" her. They start to fall in love and Beth goes back home. Derek and Beth continue to see each other but Derek has a horrible secret. I won't say much else without telling you the rest of the story. But this book is a must read for all of you! It had me frustrated, because deep down I wanted Scott and Beth together, but on the other hand I was in tears wanting to know Derek's secret!!! This book is beautifully written and I will continue to read Morrison's books or works of greatness!!!

Overall: Loved it! Heartfelt! Must read! Beautiful.

Cover: Love the cover! It is beautiful! And the effects on it are great!
