Review

Just listen is a story about a teenage girl named Annabel. The only thing that separates her from being a normal teen is that she's a model. Usually model's will get what they want and live a perfect life, but not in this case. Annabel goes through so many challenges just like any teenager. She has three sisters that fight, and one thats in a dangerous risk of being anorexic. Friends who drifted far away from her, and the death of her mothers own mom. It's such an emotional ride, especially when Annabel can't tell her mother about wanting to quit modeling. That's until this boy named Owen came along, and taught her how to be honest, because that's all he knows.


This book is amazing, because it shows the meaning of family, friendship and relationship. It teaches you that no matter what you go through, there will always be someone there for you.
