Her friendship with cruel Sophie ended on a night that she can't bear remember and her sister has eating disorder.
Annabel wants to quit modeling and she becomes a loner untill she meets Owen Armstrong and his music world ... Annabel
"The past did effect the present and the future,in ways you could see and a million ones you couldn't.Time wasn' t a thing you could divide easily; there was no define middle or beginning or end.I could pretend to leave the past behind,but it would not leave me." "Music is a total constant. That' s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it,you know? Because a song can take you back istantly to a moment,or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your world,that one song says the same,just like that moment." Owen Sarah Dessen was born in 1970,Illinois but she
spent a lot of time in Chapel Hill,NC.Her parents

was a normal teenager and she said that her girlfriends have inspired

"All I'd ever wanted was to forget,but even when I thought I had,pieces had kept emerging,like bits of wood,floating up to the surface that only think at the shipwreck below."
