To anyone who has read a Sarah Dessen novel before, you know exactly what I mean when I say this book is absolutely perfect. Annabel's voice is just so honest, you can't help falling in love with her, or Owen Armstrong. If you haven't picked up one of Dessen's novels before, what are you waiting for? Take it out now! Place a hold on it! You won't regret it. Just Listen is by far my favourite Sarah Dessen book, and I think it's a great place to start if you're just being introduced to the literary genius that is behind Dessen's stories. A five star rating for sure.
