My favorite Sarah Dessen book! Her books are always great in that they're romantic and yet more about the character development and dealing with tough situations than romantic entanglements. In this book, middle child Annabel deals with the sudden loss of her popularity from mysterious circumstances over the summer. (Don't worry, of course she reveals it later!) She gains an enigmatic new friend, the hulking Owen, who loves music above all else. Annabel has a habit of avoiding difficult things and lies often to avoid confrontation and to make people happy (or so she tells herself). Owen, on the other hand, always tells the truth. Always. So with his help Annabel learns to overcome what happened to her over the summer that caused her to lose everything and in the end gains so much more.
