Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

July 16, 2016 Review 17 ★★★½

June 24, 2016 Review 32 ★★★★

WITH MALICE unravels a mystery about what happened after two best friends take a school trip to Italy, with one returning with missing memories and one not returning at all. The entire novel is driven by the need to answer one question: what happened? Told from Jill’s point of view, we find ourselves in the same position she is. Due […]
