I loved Just Listen. Owen is a character that will immediately grab your interest, especially with lines like "...for me, not saying how I feel when I feel it is a bad move. So I don't do it. Look at it this way: I might be saying you're fat, but at least I'm not punching you in the face." As for Annabel, the things she's holding inside are tearing her apart, and, in the end, it's the strength of her sisters that gets her to ask for help.

The characters of Kirsten and Whitney are complex, and I have to admit that there's a part near the end of the book in which the sisters come together that made me all mushy inside. As for Annabel, it's not all about telling the truth, but about listening, not just to others, but mostly to that voice inside of her.

Pretty clean read other than the anorexia issue but even that is not explicity talked about really.
