Saylor Grayson makes herself sick. Literally. She ate her first needle when she was seven. Now, at nineteen, she’s been kicked out of college for poisoning herself with laxatives. The shrinks call it Munchausen Syndrome. All Saylor knows is that when she’s ill, her normally distant mother pays attention and the doctors and nurses make her feel special. Then she meets Drew Dean, the leader of a local support group for those with terminal diseases. When he mistakes her for a new member, Saylor knows she should correct him. But she can’t bring herself to, not after she’s welcomed into a new circle of friends. Friends who, like Drew, all have illnesses ready to claim their independence or their lives For the first time, Saylor finds out what it feels like to be in love, to have friends who genuinely care about her. But secrets have a way of revealing themselves. What will happen when Saylor’s is out?

A huge fan of spooky stuff and shoes, I enjoy alternately hitting up the outlet malls and historic graveyards in Charleston, SC where I live and imbibe coffee. My husband and two small children seem not to mind when I hastily scribble novel lines on stray limbs in the absence of notepads. Since no writer's biography is complete without mention of her menagerie of animals, you should know I have one dog that doubles as a footstool, a second that functions as a vacuum cleaner, and a cat that ensures I never forget that my hands are, first and foremost, for pouring cat food.

"[Falls] has done a beautiful job of mastering the character... This is Saylor, warts and all, and, perhaps because we're so afraid of what will happen if we let her go, we read on, transfixed..." --Lindsey Alexander, former editor at HarperCollins
"[Secret for a Song] uses the specter of illness to communicate the truths of love, honesty, and the importance of not taking life for granted. This beautiful book is one that this reviewer takes great pride in recommending as a must read." --Frishawn Rasheed, Book Blogger at WTF Are You Reading?
