Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra | 2/7/2014

    " This book was recommended by my college roommate. I really liked her family story and loved how two outcast could end up together in their own way. Her "relationship" with her best friend turns out to be kind of obvious but; what I liked about this book was the fact that it was different. Music was a leading character which makes this story unique. "

    " This book was so amazing, I just couldn't put it down. I felt like I was Annabelle, and I loved the romance between her and Owen. It was one of my favorite books of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delaney | 2/4/2014

    " I just finished this book and I LOVED it!!! Sarah Dessen has done it again! I love Annabel's personality and even though she goes through a lot she doesn't let it get her. I love Owen and his music obsession!! I love how in the end everything fits together and gets better for Annabel how she deserves it to. This is a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna Flores | 1/23/2014

    " A different kind of love story! :) I like the way that it was centered mostly on other aspects like family and personal problems rather than their love story itself! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi | 1/16/2014

    " This is my second Sarah Dessen book, and let me just say, it did not disappoint! So, for some reason, i find that it takes me a second to get into her books, but then once i'm in, I'M IN! I get completely hooked and i can't put it down. Her characters are so real and easy to relate to. And i love a contemporary that has a music aspect to it. The story was terrible and hopeful and happy and meaningful--pretty much any adjective you can think of. It was also fun catching a glimpse of Wes and Macy at the waffle joint. Overall, great book, great message, go read it! "

    " I wasn't really a music person. I would listen to music sometime. When I did, I would be doing something else. Now I seem to listen to music everyday, and just listen to music. This book isn't just about music, but what can I say: this book some how changed my view on music(?). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Libia Batista | 8/16/2013

    " In my opinion, this book could've been better. It doesn't have as much excitement to what some of her other books. But that's just my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikala | 5/7/2013

    " one of my all time favourite Sarah Dessen novels. i love how some of the characters really grow through out the book, the plot, the sad moments and the happy moments. i also really loved Owen. i have read this book 2 or 3 times now and i love it a little bit more each time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 4/22/2013

    " This is one of Sarah Dessen's best and includes all the things that make her books standouts. The characters are flawed but well-developed. The plot moves at a steady pace, peeling back layers of the characters until you feel as though they are people you know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess Macallan | 4/2/2013

    " This was another good, solid YA from Ms. Dessen. She is so talented at navigating the problems teens go through, and in this one, touched on a tough subject. The characters were real, raw, and yet easy to sink into. She's a writer I come back to time and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jorri Maree | 11/28/2012

    " I loved the book but I think Annabel could've had more to her if that makes any since... "

    " this was the first Sarah Dessen book I read and I loved it so much I went to source out her other novels as soon as I was finished. It's a great novel for young adults that deals tactically with sometimes difficult issues and keeps its reader's attention the whole way through "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sania Malik | 6/27/2012

    " This is the first young adult novel I've ever read. It shocked me to know how great authors can capture teenage feelings. Everyone and anyone should read this novel; it can be life hanging. "

    " This book is amazing. It makes you think about you what you've done or what you need to do. It also helps realize some things. And it also talks about real problems of today's teenagers. "
