Just Listen by: Sarah Dessen
The book just listen is about a girl named Annabel Greene. People think she has everything because she is a model and lives in a glass house. But, what people don’t know is that Annabel Greene is definitely far from perfect. After Annabel’s two older sisters Whitney and Kirsten moved in together, there ended up being a lot of arguing.
