    Story
    "Loved it. "

    Excellent love story with a poignant message--times may have changed, but far too many young LGBTQ+ people struggle and suffer from the backwards attitudes of others. Good narration, easy enough to tell the characters apart and keep track of events. Very much worth it.

    "Annie on My Mind"

    I love the book. It is a beautiful love story, beautifully written. It has an important message about love, loving someone, and being loved. I didn't want the story to end, and in my heart it hasn't. It's just beginning!

    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.

    "A Gentle, Beautiful Love Story"

    I loved the gentle, honest story of Annie and Liza. I was captivated from the moment I started listening. It gives me hope. Although it is categorized as a "teen" novel, I am approaching 40 years of age, and just coming in to who I am, and this story, although fiction, has brought me such beautiful clarity! Rebecca Lowman's reading of this beautiful, timeless tale is perfect. Her sincerity is obvious, and the characters take on a life of their own. After Rebecca's reading, the author, Nancy Garden, speaks to the reader. It's fantastic.

    Story
    "This book is on my mind"

    Oh my god.

    This book is amazing. Not perfect, but amazing.

    Rebecca Lowman did a fantastic job narrating the story and the voices she did for each character--and made each voice for each. Annie had a distinct voice and so did Eliza, which I absolutely loved.

    I was listening to the audiobook while doing schoolwork and that was a mistake; because I didn't get anything done. After about an hour, I just gave up on my homework and began to crochet a scarf for my friend and I was absolutely taken away into Annie and Eliza's world. I was surprised how much I related to Annie and Eliza, and how real each character felt. Every time I listened, it was like I was meeting friends again.

    So, it's safe to say, this book is definitely on my mind (and probably will be for a long time)

    Story
    "A Queer Story with a Happy Ending"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Annie On My Mind to be better than the print version?

    The careful and slow pace of Rebecca Lowman kept us in the moment. It was nice to hear the character thinking and feeling so carefully which added to the overall qualities of the book.


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

    This was a book that I did complete in 24 hours. Every time I paused it in places because I was worried it would all go rotten, the authentic would find ways to make it beautiful or (in case of actually bad situations) ok.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very special book. I thought it was excellent and a very good story - would highly recommend.

    A sweet retelling of a meaningful, first relationship in the main characters life, that keeps a pleasant taste in your mouth afterwards. One of the only feel good lesbian romances I have read, a story of love told with the seccinct, uncomplicated and unmlodramatics of hind sight. A first person narration that felt at times as though it were in third.

    It was satisfying to see a book where rediculously evil characters are reprimanded and loved ones were forgiving and understanding. A realistic world where people can still be a little prejudiced and also be good people. It's also nice to see a story where parents are not a bad guy any shape or form, just human.

    It was beautiful and satisfying in the way the events played out.
