Finding Ourselves in Fiction: Annie On My Mind

Leave a comment

Annie On My Mind is the story of two young women navigating their discoveries about themselves and each other in the midst of adolescence and a homophobic society. It’s definitely a YA novel, but it held my attention (and made me cry more than once).

20180125_052358Amazon states, “One of the first books to positively portray a lesbian relationship, Annie on My Mind is a groundbreaking classic of the genre.” As you can probably tell by the artwork on the cover (mine came from the public library), it was initially published in the early ’80s. The story, however, is timeless and enjoyable.

While sex is discussed, it’s done in a roundabout and euphemistic way; you won’t find any how-to instructions here.
