Raven: Just Listen

A novel by Sarah Dessen

Publication Date: April 6th, 2006
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Pages: 261
Targeted Audience: Teens

Summary: When Annabel, the youngest of three beautiful sisters, has a bitter falling out with her best friend—the popular and exciting Sophie—she suddenly finds herself isolated and friendless. But then she meets Owen—a loner, passionate about music and his weekly radio show, and always determined to tell the truth. And when they develop a friendship, Annabel is not only introduced to new music but is encouraged to listen to her own inner voice. With Owen's help, can Annabel find the courage to speak out about what exactly happened the night her friendship with Sophie came to a screeching halt?

Don't think or judge, just listen... Ah that is so inspiring!

The story starts off with her and when Owen enters the scene it just blasts off to space. I love Owen.

He is obsessed with music and the kind of music that he listens to... speechless (In opera voice). He is always telling the truth and has got anger management issues.

He is completely honest and won't even think of lying to others whereas Annabel would do anything but say they truth. I just love both of them so much. This is another story where two people don't fall in love instantly, but the two loners of the school just happen to come together and then they fall.

Now if I keep going like this I will not stop talking about Owen and his adorably cliché sister, so moving on. We have Annabel, who was once really popular until last summer when something happened and she and the other most popular girl were no longer friends.

But that's not all. She has got problems at home as well. Her anorexic sister, her model obsessed mom and her glass house which so much like her family, showing you only what you need to see.

It may come as a surprise to others but this was my first Sarah Dessen book which I read like two months ago and before Beez shoved it over my face and forced me to take it up from the school library, I had never even heard of the author. So yeah, this concludes the fact that Beez is a bully (Hahah Just kidding... not really)

I rate it a 4.5 since I  loved how everything was put up and the way the flashbacks were portrayed was also great. So yeah, it's a great read.

Lots of love and pasta,

Note by Beez:
I am not going to deny that i did not force Raven into reading this book, i just did it because it was for the greater good. You can relax Raven, i'm not going to kill you. I just wanted to tell you guys that i too loved this book, especially Owen's bizarre taste in music. 
Go read it people!

Lots of love and lasagna
