Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

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?

This book was very nice, It combined music, friendship, and an unknown love. I have always been a huge Dessen fan, and there was no exception with this book.
Owen is mysterious, music-loving, and caring. During the book, you follow him on a wonderful journey. In the begining of the book you find out that Owen has anger management problems, throughout the book he works on getting rid of his anger. And, by the end of the book, he has done that.
In the book, you also follow Annabel in her journey of finding herself.
This was a lovely book, and a must read.

I liked this book too and am actually listening to the audio book right now. But I gotta say, I'm not a huge fan of Owen- too elitist in his thoughts on music for my liking.

Great review!
