Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
Annabel Greene is the girl who has it all. She’s popular, beautiful, a model, in fact. Then things start falling apart, starting with her anorexic sister and ending with the entire school abandoning her. And that’s not even the worst of it. She has more than enough issues, but she isn’t telling anyone—Annabel fears nothing more than confrontation. Then she meets Owen, also an outcast, but more importantly a boy who tells nothing but the truth. From him she finds courage, honesty, and rather inevitably falls in love.
Although this is a book focusing on relationships, there’s a dose of suspense, too. You get the story a piece of a time, like Annabel is slowly revealing herself. What really happened the night her friendship with her nasty best friend Sophie came to a screeching halt?
