I really love this book! i’m a huge fan of music so i’m glad that Sarah Dessen included music as a big factor toward Owen.Ever since I read this book, I’ve been reading all the other books she wrote and she’s now my favorite author! I also love how her books are somewhat connected to each other, like how Annabel sees Macy and Wes at the Waffle House,... sweet!

This book was absolutely fantastic. Sarah Dessen is my favorite author because of the way she writes, and this book was no different. I could not put it down for a second! I recommend this book to anyone who has read a Sarah Dessen book before and loved it. It teaches you about trust and friendship, and how everyone's not always how they seem. It it's incredible!

I thought this was a wonderful book. It is one of Sarah Dessen's greatest. It was pretty sad at the beginning when Annabel (the main character) is describing her life and what came of it. Then as things got worse in Annabel's life, Sarah Dessen sends in a character to get Annabel to open up and to tell the truth. Rather than telling little white lies just to protect the people she loves. This is one of the best books I've read, and anybody would love this book!!

This was an AWESOME book by my favorite author Sarah Dessen. It's about the struggles a girl, who seems to have a perfect life, faces. It has great values and deals with tough teen issues including self-image, overcoming eating disoders, friendship, rape, and the lies we tell everyday. I recommend it to every teenage girl. Check it out!
