Publisher's Summary

Residents of Austin, Texas, so value individualism that most (but not all!) of them rally around the phrase, "keep Austin weird." In the midst of that off-kilter vibe are two mildly weird kindergarten teachers, Eleanor Cooprider and Kim Park. One of them possesses a superpower and the other recognizes superpowers in others (and she can talk to plants, though they never answer). Once they share this super-secret, their mutual attraction blossoms into love, and there is nothing weird about that.

To summarize this summary via the novel's lengthy sub-title:

  • Lesbian - because there are women loving women (but this not a romance novel or erotica).
  • Superhero - because of a single superpower (but not science fiction or fantasy).
  • Love Story - see Lesbian, above.
  • For Grown-Ups - because no one leaps tall buildings in a single bound or wears a crime-fighting onesie.

But enough summarizing: please begin listening from the beginning. Thank you for your cooperation.

    "Yuk"

    I'm sure the story is fine but the person who narrates the story was terrible and didn't bother listening because I couldn't stand the voice. It was monotone and uninteresting

    "mumbling male narrator"

    I don't mind reading lesbian books writing by men much but who's great idea was it to have a man read it. I'm a lesbian I get pleasure from women, their looks, their bodies, their voices. I don't want to listen to a man read about lesbian life and love. This narrator also has a problem with speaking clearly so he can be understood. I was unable to get past the first chapter because of its.
