REVIEW: Just Listen



Just Listen by

Last year, Annabel was "the girl who has everything"—at least that's the part she played in the television commercial for Kopf's Department Store.This year, she's the girl who has nothing: no best friend because mean-but-exciting Sophie dropped her, no peace at home since her older sister became anorexic, and no one to sit with at lunch. Until she meets Owen Armstrong. Tall, dark, and music-obsessed, Owen is a reformed bad boy with a commitment to truth-telling. With Owen's help,maybe Annabel can face what happened
the night she and Sophie stopped being friends.

My Thoughts:
I find myself greatly identifying with Annabell and her views on both life and music. A great book to read and another great work of Sarah Dessen. It was difficult to read the instance of violence but the resolution and the involvement of Owen throughout it was excellent.
