I think reviewing Annie on my mind should be a little different than other contemporary lesbian romances.We should keep in mind that this book was written with a purpose. In the words of the author: "I wrote it to give solace to young gay people, to let them know they were not alone, that they could...

First of all this book touched me. I don't remember now what scene or thought "it" was, but for a brief moment I felt young and in love (on a sunny day). Sure the actions of the leads read much younger, initially anyway, and the setting for the story was as if it were 1972. No matter. I felt better ...

"If you don't put that ring on this minute, I'm going to take it back," Annie whispered in my ear. She leaned back, looking at me, her hands still on my shoulders, her eyes shining softly at me and snow falling, melting, on her nose. "Buon Natale," she whispered, "amore mio.""Merry Christmas, my lov...

First published in 1982, Annie on my mind caused much controversy for its romantic themes between two teenage girls. Today it still stirs up controversy among readers and those who would like to see the book banned from libraries. Annie and Liza met on a rainy day at the Metropolitan Art Museum. The...

I almost felt bad about Ms Baxter, almost... such an ignorant person. But then, there are still people who think that way, poor prejudiced people. Ms Baxter is just a representative, as well as Sally and the classmates. I almost did not finish the book. Not because it was bad (it is good and sweet)....

Dropped for now. The 'conflict' is too simple for me and I think I'm just too old for it.

Review also appears on The Book Lantern: http://www.thebooklantern.co.uk/2013/03/review-annie-on-my-mindby-nancy-garden.htmlI am embarrassingly behind on reading most of the books that often grace the banned/challenged list. One that’s often caught my eye was Annie On My Mind, which continues to rec...

This book is so powerful to me. It's about a young woman's struggle on finding love and acceptance. It struck a chord with me, having similar experiences from people calling me mentally ill for being gay to someone telling me that it's against God's will. This book is very moving, and awesome. Recom...

I know this is a predictable and outdated novel. I've read negative reviews and complaints about it before (some from aspiring LGBTQ writers, and I respect their opinions.) Yes, I am aware of its flaws despite the rating I gave it.But it still remains as one of my favorites. Why? Because when I firs...

Two girls fall in love, but of course there are homophobes all around them. Their friendship and eventual love is utterly believable--I still remember their swordfight in the Cloisters. A good, rather meloncholy YA book.
