    Story
    "Simple, beautiful, brilliant."
    What made the experience of listening to Annie On My Mind the most enjoyable?

    How the narrator's voice perfectly matched the feel of the story (whether this makes sense to you or not, both evoked the feeling of softness/delicacy.)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Annie On My Mind?

    The relationship between Lisa and Annie, so most of the book ha.


    What about Rebecca Lowman’s performance did you like?

    EVERYTHING. I especially liked how different she made the voices of the various characters and how they all felt fitting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I can't listen to books in one sitting, I get easily distracted. But this book made me want to pay attention and enjoy every moment of it.


    Any additional comments?

    What a beautiful story. This may have been written in 1982 but it's relevant to this day, and it's certainly a necessary story for people (especially those just starting to figure things out, whether they are teens or not) in the LGBTQAI+ community.

    Story
    "Without a doubt, a classic"
    What made the experience of listening to Annie On My Mind the most enjoyable?

    The narration was perfect at capturing the raw emotion. As soon as i heard the first words, "it's raining annie", i knew i was going to be captured by the melancholy of this story. The narrator was able to put me instantly into the hearts and souls of these two young girls in love. She was able to convey the love and joy underneath the confusion and difficult situations, and not in a sad depressing way. I was unable to do anything other than stare out the window as this story was told. I was transported into the world of the story, helpless to do anything else until the narrator was finished telling this deeply personal and touching tale.

    Story
    "Groundbreaking novel that falls flat"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I highly admire the courage of Nancy Garden to write and publish this title twenty-five years ago when it was so sorely needed - and still is today. However, I found many of the scenes to be too lengthy and it lost my attention too many times. It may be a sign of the times in that YA books are more succinct nowadays, thanks to the shortening of our attention spans. It got preachy at times in the second half of the book, but again we have to remember when it was published. In that respect it was an important reminder of how far we've come in the years since the book was published, and how far we still have to come.


    What aspect of Rebecca Lowman’s performance would you have changed?

    I found the narration to be one of the most distracting parts of the book. I felt her voice was too


    Was Annie On My Mind worth the listening time?

    It was admirable to know that such a book was written twenty-five years ago for teens and featuring teens. But, not really worth listening to for the story itself. I did it mainly for research.
