Would you consider the audio edition of Annie On My Mind to be better than the print version?

Never read the print version but absolutely loved the audio version

Who was your favorite character and why?

Annie-She had this confidence in the love she felt for Liza, she knew they were meant for each other, while at times it seems Liza had doubts, Annie never did.

Which character – as performed by Rebecca Lowman – was your favorite?

Annie, the voice she used for Annie was so soothing, so calm so relaxed, so mature for 17, so real.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How love can conquer all, no-matter the obstacles we face to over-come them, especially in this world that we live in. Always having to fight to be free to be who we are.

Any additional comments?

The Greek methodology that was used did alot for me, it helped me to understand to certain extent how powerful ones thoughts are, especially when we search our souls and allow ourselves to believe. Annie on my mind opened my eyes to a lot of things, and has helped me to grow stronger as a lesbian.

What a relief that we're making progress

It was nice listening to the interview with the author at the end and realizing that we really have made progress with at least awareness, although the awkward teen years never change and I'm sure are made even more so with a GLBTQ epiphany. I'm not gay myself, but I grew up in a pretty progressive household (I did not appreciate this at the time, but only later realized that not everyone's mother's dear friend lived with her partner, not everyone has the opportunity to experience drag clubs as a teenager, and that Madison, Wisconsin is a special place). Sensitive and very well done as a coming of age novel for anyone.
