5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Cup, 20 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a gift and was very impressed with the quality and originality of the product. The Cup is standard sized and has a score classification for the scrabble letter tiles on the other side to the main letter, which is a nice touch. Also, on the inside of the cup there is a double word score tile printed on the bottom, which is a nice, unexpected addition.

My friend was thrilled with the cup and, for a novelty gift, I think this is well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speechless, 23 April 2006

This review is from: Just Listen (Hardcover)
As with all of Sarah Dessen's previous novels, I was expecting something fantastic when I received 'Just Listen'. And I was certainly not disappointed.

'Just Listen' tells the story of Annabel who has returned to school, after a miserable summer, to find herself friendless. With turbulant family issues haunting her at home and the pressure of her modelling career weighing heavy upon her shoulders, Annabel somehow finds herself befriended by music obsessed Owen Armstrong, a most unlikely ally.

The initial theme is similar to that in Laurie Halse Anderson's 'Speak', but Dessen's story blossoms throughout into something much more profound and deals with some powerful issues such as self image and a fear of speaking out.

Dessen offers up another masterpiece packed with crackling dialogue and a cast of delightfully quirky and unbelievably realistic characters. Unmissable.
