Just Listen (Paperback)
Annabelle's story is one of the most gut-wrenching and honest portraits of needing acceptance for all that we are--not only from others, but from ourselves as well. Amazing, touching, and real.— Sam, Tattered Cover
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. . .
