A teen romance

"Annie on my mind" is one of the first teen lesbian romance novels and it is not a terribly sad book. Liza and Annie fall in love, but as they live in the early 1980s, homophobia abounds. Anyone who thinks homophobia isn't such a bad thing should read this book, as it shows how lesbians can lose their jobs and worse because of others' bigotry.
The book also makes lots of references to 1970s lesbian culture, which might seem goofy to modern readers.
I can't promise a perfect, happy ending, but the book does not end in tragedy, which is about the most one can expect from a lesbian novel of that era.
