The main character, Saylor is a girl that from the summary you will see swallows needles. In the book, you learn it is because she has Munchausen's Syndrome. Munchausen's Syndrome is not something that I was terribly familiar with prior to reading One Last Song. I knew the quick superficial idea of what it was, and that was it. But it made reading Saylor's story completely riveting to me. I loved how deeply the author, S.K. Falls goes into describing the disorder. And after reading this book, I hate to put it as simply as Saylor was swallowing needles for attention. That is how I would have described it when I started reading the book, but by the end of it, you know there is more to it than that. This is one of those books that you have to read it for yourself to discover its' magic.
There is a romance in One Last Song, but it was not what I have come to expect from my romances. Especially in the New Adult age group.Read more ›
NA in general is very, very romance centered. While One Last Song has a strong romantic subplot and a fabulous love interest, it is not the main story being told. The main story is Saylor's rocky road to recovery. She craves attention from her emotionally absent mother and abuses herself nearly all of her life for it. The first several chapters are squeamish (for me) and gutting as they unfold Saylor's obsession with pain and sickness. When she finds herself befriending the members of her support group and receiving a new kind of attention, she embarks on a difficult but gorgeous inward journey.
Self-harm is a huge role in the story so please read with care.
The toughest and best part of this book for me was the last chapters. I couldn't put it down but never wanted it to end! Definitely bring the tissues out for the last 10 chapters or so...so emotional! I would recommend this book to anyone who reads, no matter what genre you are into. :)
This story grabbed my attention from the very beginning and would not let go. Saylor is a young woman with issues; many, many issues. She has Munchausen syndrome, which is a psychiatric factitious disorder where she will feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to her. Saylor was required to withdraw from college during the second semester and has now returned to her dysfunctional family home. She is living with a mother who has withdrawn and is forever working on building miniature dollhouses and a workaholic father. In one of the opening segments, Saylor is meeting a new psychiatrist – Dr. Stone. During their session, when Dr. Stone asks:
“If you could do anything in the world, what would you do?”
Saylor indicates she would like to volunteer at the hospital. Already as a reader I am thinking….NOT a good idea. But the psychiatrist goes along with the suggestion (even encourages it). Saylor’s volunteer assignment is to set up and take down the meeting rooms for different support groups. Three weeks in and she has set up one room for the TIDD (terminal illness and degenerative diseases) group. To pass time, Saylor picked up a book on MS. In walks Drew. As a result of reading the book, Drew incorrectly assumes Saylor is waiting to participate in the group and she has MS, and the lie is born. Saylor meets the major characters from the group:,
Andrew Dean (known as Drew) –FA – Friedreich’s ataxi – a degenerative disease;
Carson – T-PLL – a kind of leukemia;
Pierce – AIDS;
Zee – Breast cancer; and
Jack – cancer – currently with encephalitis (brain infection)-too sick to attend meetings.Read more ›
