Wonderful read! This was exactly what I have been looking for and I loved it. Coming of age or getting to know who you are. Seeing yourself through the eyes of other people. Falling in love. This is how a true YA novel should be done.
I kept smiling and frowning through the whole book. Thouroughly enjoying every wird, every page. So refreshing, so right. Thank you! I've said this before but adult books really should take note on how to tell a story in the right pace, with enough depth to the characters lika book like this actually does. The romance is very subtle, but you can FEEL it so much. And then everythingelse besides the romance.
I'm so content right now! Although some aspects of Sarah Dessen's heroines are out of reach for most think 2 parent families in good suburban neighborhoods; think "unattainably beautiful" , I really love that she included a sadder, uglier, and unfortunately far more universal theme of rape and what we go through in an attempt to move on from an event that changes our lives for the worse.
PROS 1. It's truthful, honest, witty, and well written 2.
It's one of those books that makes you actually feel the anger, happiness, shock, etc of the characters, which is very rare in a book, and very hard to do. CONS 1. Sometimes in books and this is just my opinion, and I am not trying to be rude or judgmental you just get sick of hearing the same thing over and over again, and sometimes you need to have a little bit of a surprise here and there.
Again, just my opinion I felt that this book, even though there are many pros and cons, and I don' t think that with with either one can outweigh the other, given the fact that everyone has a different opinion, was, in my opinion, was sort of predictable on some accounts.
This may be just because I have read better material, given the fact that I am constantly reading, but I think that this book could've been made better.
Now, I am not saying this to offend the author or the readers, because I myself am a writer and I don't want to be rude, but I think that the book, if written a little differently, could be much better if there were some things added. I am not saying to change the original story line, which I think is very good, but to, let's say, spice it up a little bit. Obviously since the story has already been written it can't be changed, but I feel it could have been better this way.
Lastly, I think that this story sort of pales in comparison with Sarah Dessen's other books, such as, Along for the Ride, Dreamland, Keeping the Moon, etc. Don' t get me wrong, it's a good book, but in my opinion she has written far better books. Overall I think that Just Listen is a good book, but maybe for younger or less advanced readers. Again, this is just me stating my opinion and I am not trying to be rude, and I have read very advanced material, so it may be normal for me to feel this way.
It has its pros and cons just like any other book, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I'm just stating mine. So, I guess in other words that while I enjoyed the book, I would've enjoyed it much better if there were some changes made to it.
Written by Grace Will age Get Readin'. How many white lies do you tell in a day? And why do you feel you need to lie to your friends, your family? Why say "I'm fine" when your really breaking apart inside? This is what this book addresses. Annabel is a girl who's stuck in the middle. She has a terrible secret which she desperately needs to tell, but she doesn't know how to.
When her sister gets anorexic, Annabel needs to be the strong one. She needs to continue doing something she's beginning to despise to keep her mother happy and from falling apart. But Annabel realises that she is the one that is threatening to fall apart. When something terrible happens, she becomes an outcast at school. She's the hot topic among everyone around her, and those she thought she could trust are the ones running the rumour mill.
But when Annabel starts talking to Owen, a music-obsessed, completely honest outcast like herself, Annabel begins to see the light. Don't think or judge, just listen.
And Owen slowly but surely helps Annabel confront her fears and face the light, holding her hand along the way. This is a very sweet, very light read. If you're looking for something to read that isn't part of a series and doesn't have any complicated plot or characters, this is the book to read. Hardcover Verified Purchase. On first glance I didn't think I would enjoy this novel. It involves topics I did not think I would be interested in: The male character is not the attractive, charming young man one would expect.
It is very different from Dessen's other books--darker, and though not as deep or meaningful as The Truth About Forever, it deals with issues most people wish to ignore as too intense or unpleasant and I learned a lot from it. I found this novel a surprisingly enjoyable and rewarding read. I learned a lot that I had not previously realized about the world around me and saw things from Annabel's point of view. It did not have the typical ending I would have expected--I was pleasantly surprised on that count as well.
I especially love the way Dessen incorporated characters from two previous novels my two favorites, as it happens. This is overall a great read. One person found this helpful. See all reviews.
