Just Listen (Paperback)
"Meet Annabel Greene. She's a local model who literally lives in a glass house with her picturesque family. She's also best friends with the powerful, popular queen bee Sophie. Or at least she was, until one fateful night at a party changed everything. Enter Owen Armstrong. He's a tough, silent, music-obsessed loner. He's also in a gang, has served time and was expelled from his last school. Or so says the Jackson High rumor mill. But appearances can be deceiving. And with Annabel's newfound statas as an outcast, an unlikely friendship between the two develops."— Helen
From the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Once and for All
To find the truth you’ve got to be willing to hear it.
When she’s modeling, Annabel is the picture of perfection.
But her real life is far from perfect.
Fortunately, she’s got Owen. He’s intense, music-obsessed, and dedicated to always telling the truth.
And most of all, he’s determined to make Annabel happy. . .
