This Song Will Save Your Life – Review

By on January 11, 2017

“But you, you will never learn your lesson. The world embraces ordinary, the world will never embrace you.”



SongThis book just hits home! It didn’t save my life but it saved my day, and I’m so happy I picked it up.

This is one for the outsider in you, a silencer to that nagging voice in your head that tells you, that you’re not good enough. This book reminds you that you’re extraordinary, and there is nothing anyone can do to change that.

I could not put this book down, and read it in less than a day, and as soon as I finished it made me want to get dressed and go out for a walk, perhaps to find my own secret passion, even though, without realising it, I had just spent my day with my passion already.

Thank you Leila Sales, for writing a totally relatable and heartwarming book that saved my day. Thank you for letting me know I’m not alone.
