Last year, Annabel was "the girl who has everything" — at least that's the part she played in the television commercial for Kopf's Department Store.

This year, she's the girl who has nothing: no best friend because mean-but-exciting Sophie dropped her, no peace at home since her older sister became anorexic, and no one to sit with at lunch. Until she meets Owen Armstrong.

Tall, dark, and music-obsessed, Owen is a reformed bad boy with a commitment to truth-telling. With Owen's help, maybe Annabel can face what happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends.

Shae Petersen | 5267 comments I thought you couldn’t listen till tomorrow? Your flying through now!


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48930 comments Mod
Ah true haha. But that's 16 I think for most people. So that's the legal age.

I'll finish tomorrow. I'm at Auckland now.

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48930 comments Mod
How can you focus so much though?

What do you mean?


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48930 comments Mod
Like if you listen all day that means you're able to focus on the audio all day without getting distracted

I don’t listen all day, I listen when I’m driving, doing housework, making dinner, putting Albee to bed, if I have a free period at work and my work for that free is focused on laminating/ cutting or mindless stuff then I will listen. Definitely don’t listen all day, just in the times I am doing adult stuff where I don’t have to think.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48930 comments Mod
You have so much motivation XD

I know I felt soooo much freaking anger at this!! And she seemed completely shocked to find out about what Emily did. Like it really isn't that surprising, just common sense to do that?
