JUST LISTEN by Sarah Dessen


About JUST LISTEN (taken from goodreads.com)

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.


I find a lot of Sarah Dessen’s books are basically the same, but for some reason I never get tired of them. I find this book really makes you think. About yourself and your life. Even though this was a pretty cheesy, expected book I still enjoyed reading it. I can’t even tell you why I liked it. Maybe because it made me keep reading even though it wasn’t the greatest book I’ve ever read. This book has some really great morals in it and I think every teen girl should read it and learn. I’m making this seem like and inspirational book or something but it’s not. the book has a good plot and some really likeable characters. I like how descriptive the author is when she’s talking about a place or an object. She’s got a very unique style of writing. I’m not usually a romance fan, but I read everything that comes out by this author.

I think that if you’ve got a chance, read this book.

5 out of 5

“Don’t think or judge, just listen.”
