Just Listen

Just Listen - Sarah Dessen I can't even tell you how many times I've read this book! It's an amazing book... I love this book, it's well written and it has you turning page after page-wanting to get to the end...

"When Annabel, the youngest of three beautiful sisters, has a bitter falling out with her best friend—the popular and exciting Sophie—she suddenly finds herself isolated and friendless. but then she meets Owen—a loner, passionate about music and his weekly radio show, and always determined to tell the truth. And when they develop a friendship, Annabel is not only introduced to new music but is encouraged to listen to her own inner voice. with Owen's help, can Annabel find the courage to speak out about what exactly happened the night her friendship with Sophie came to a screeching halt?"

Annabel has to give the impression that she is perfect and that nothing affects her... she thinks that she can't afford to look not put together(I think part of this was her mother's fault)...

Sarah Dessen's books have always some kind of development in they're characters and this was no exception... Annabel grows so much in this book, by the end of the book you're going to be like who's this girl? is it the same book?... Sarah Dessen is so good at girl drama without the exaggeration of the drama... if that makes sense

Owen is a big help on Annabel's growth (Having dealt with his own issues in the past) Owen knows a little bit about letting go and kinda pushes Annabel to deal with her own ghosts... But she's a little too adamant... Besides having conflicts at school, she is also dealing with some issues at home... A part from all this going on she has trouble being honest... which Owen does not, he is honest to the core, knowing that lying or omitting the truth brings nothing good.

For all that's happening in Annabel's life she is drawn within herself to a point that only she can reach; when she realizes that she just has to listen to her inner conscious and to learned that being honest about herself, and everything else can bring her closure to all her problems.
We all need to Just Listen once in a while; sometimes to come to terms with somebody, or just to have some closure or compromise...

Overall this book is amazing, I recommend this book to anyone that likes a good romance-drama story kinda book. And that likes to Just Listen.... (or read)
