59 – Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

So, I randomly picked up this audiobook from the library.  Here’s the Goodreads summary.

“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 really liked this book! It was a much better experience than the other Sarah Dessen book I read.

This book is all about Annabel and how she copes with life after a traumatic experience that leaves her wounded and friendless. She meets Owen and her life takes a turn for the better. I really like Annabel as a lead female. Also, Owen as a male lead is refreshing. He’s not some hot, studly, don’t care type guy. He’s a guy who’s been through a bunch of crap and is real. Like I said, refreshing.

I also liked reading about real situations and how different people see them as well as how they react to them. Then, to see how everyone pulls through and moves on.

I really enjoyed this book and it helped give me some faith in reading something else of Sarah Dessen’s.  I would definitely recommend it.
