I picked the book, Just Listen ..., by Sarah Dessen, to read for my book report because Sarah Dessen is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her writing not only captivates me, but also inspires me. Dessen writes from a troubling teenager's point of view in which she expresses the many issues that Annabel faces. This book is about a girl, Annabel Greene, who is a model that appears in a commercial portraying as the girl that has it all. But in reality, she has nothing: no friends because of her friendship with a cold-hearted backstabber, no love or peace at home due to her sister's eating disorder, and no one to talk to when there is something on her mind. She then meets a passionate, obsessed with music, and determined guy that always tells the truth; Owen Armstrong. The central conflict in this novel is man vs. self because Annabel has troubles changing her ways for the better. The theme of this book is love, and be loved. If you open yourself and life to others, others wil do the same. I recommend this book to anyone that likes suprises, change, Sarah Dessen, and a great story.

Chelsea Barva-kertesz I wish I was allowed to do book reports on books like this. The books I had to do reports on were not enjoyable to me.
