The next book, some of you may have heard of, Annie on my Mind by Nancy Garden! This book was recommended to me by @anxiouslynikk and it is very popular in the lgbt community. It is one of the first books that showed lesbians in a positive light. Little history for anyone who doesn’t know, most of those “lesbian pulp fiction” books that you see pictures of actually existed, but all the books had to have bad endings. For example, the gay character would die, or would leave the same sex partner to be in a straight relationship, or they would get committed to a mental hospital. All of those books were forced to end that way because publishing companies wouldn’t allow lgbt+ people to have happy endings. So this book, and the Price of Salt (later adapted into the movie Carol) have become cornerstones in the lgbt+ community.
So if you don’t know where to start start with this one😊
