Just Listen is the memoir of a young girl, Jenna Young who lives with her father and his. The Descartes Legacy - Nina Croft - Google Books.

At the age of twenty-one, Jenna Young seemed to have it all. She had a full time job that she loved, was attending college to become a Radiologist, and spent her free time with friends shopping, going out to eat, and going to parties. When an injury caused her busy life to come to a standstill, she was forced to confront her past, which she had until then managed to push to the back of her mind. As the unspeakable horrors that she had lived through came to the surface, it all became too much to handle and she suffered a breakdown that lead to hospitalization. Told through flashbacks and journal entries, you will be able to follow Jenna as she struggles to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, and finally finds the courage to speak up about the dark secrets of her past.

I admire this young woman, whose courage to write her story openly and honestly must have been challenged repeatedly. I was struck by certain common themes running through the narrative, mainly, that she never had a stable, healthy relationship with anyone (other than her mom, who was, unfortunately, taken from her far too early), and that everyone she trusted turned against her. I became curious about those other people in her life, those friends and family members who embraced her and then rejected her. Did they have their own psychological issues? Was Jenna's behavior so consistently and thoroughly frightening, or offensive, that she actually pushed people away from her?

Much of her difficulty in establishing a life for herself was rooted in her lack of a stable, loving family life, her isolation, her inability to maintain a residence or a job long enough to become "rooted," and the attendant money problems that complicated an already complex life. Major changes came fast and suddenly, always in response to a crisis. Running parallel to the narrative of events was her inner narrative, her journal entries, which portrayed a young woman who knew what she wanted, knew right from wrong, and strove for the ordinary successes that most of us enjoy routinely.

In spite of numerous typos that could have been fixed with careful editing, the book flowed easily, and kept me interested from first page to last. I grew to like Jenna, and I was glad she ended the book on a positive note. I hope she has continued to build her life and relationships, continued to nurture her sensitive nature, and feed her capable brain. She impressed me as a woman with much to offer the world. I hope this book is just her beginning.

I read the reviews to this book after I read the book. Yeah, the grammar in the books is not great. This is supposed to be a journal from a girl starting at the age of 16. Really are we going to discount her story because of gramatical erros? As for her poetry (which another one of the reviews touched on) may not have meaning for that particular person, but it does for her. She is very proud of her poems. It is hard to imagine what life would be like with all the various disorders she is diagnosed with during this book and their symptoms: self-harming behavior, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, emptyness, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, and more. This poor girl. Her childhood was horrific and her story is so horrible that you think, "That can't really have happened can it? Nothing that bad happens does it?" Well it does. Jenna does a good job of letting us into her life so we can see what it is like to be in her shoes. She has a day to day battle with life. I think those that are upset over the spelling, grammar, and poetry, could overlook that considering the message from the book. Her severe dysfunction and history should be the focus, not the other things. Those can go by the wayside. I feel so bad for the writer of this book. What an awful thing to have to deal with. It is hard enough to deal with one mental disorder such as an eating disorder OR depression, but she has multiple issues. She has to be very strong to make the decision to live once a suicide attempt has been started. This is a good book to read, but it is pretty sad. The poor girl!

This is an important story and a common story that's rarely listened to. Anyone who works with abuse survivors in any capacity should read this book. You'll learn more than you did in any text book or two hour training.

To the other reviewers: STFU and just listen.

The story was extremely interesting but the writing was so terrible I had to quit reading it. Typos and misspellings, poor sentence structures etc. The poetry in the book was fairly unreadable. I think it held a lot of personal meaning, but meaning does not imply well written.
  • Fountain_tenderness
It's a heartache of a tale but the typos, lack of punctuation and believe it or not - lack of contractions (cannot, did not, am not, I am, will not) made this book pretty excrutiating to follow. I appreciated her lifelong struggle with depression, abuse and eating disorders, but eventually it became tedious to read about all of the people who didn't react the way she thought they should. If it's ever rewritten and spell checked - it would be a much better read. The lack of contractions made the conversational tone feel stilted.
  • Budar
The book is disorganized. Its hard to follow and there are many typos. While it may have been cathartic for the author, its not worth the time it took to read
For anyone trying to understand how they came to be the person they are. Jenna tells her story of her fight to live.
