WOW

Wow. Amazing, amazing, amazing, absolutely amazing. This is a beautiful read.

Excellent coming of age, and of course coming out read. But most of all, it is an excellent love story. I have nothing bad to say. I'm so obsessed with this book I wished that there would have been a (SPOILER) physical reunion at the end with a kiss instead of just on the phone, but ultimately, the ending was still great.

This book is fantastic, give it a read and tell me you don't agree! So much love and praise for Nancy Garden, well done!

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.
