Annie on My Mind is about Liza and Annie, two girls who fell in love with each other. It is written in the view of Liza, a college student studying to become an architect at MIT. She is reading through the letters her ‘friend’ Annie sent her, and reminiscing about their senior year of high school. Throughout the book, Liza recounted the events that happened during that year and at the end, made an important realization.
Liza- an aspiring architect and the president of the student council. She is very serious about her study and is adamant about getting into a good college. Meeting Annie taught her to let loose and have some fun. Through the book, she made some important personal development that led her into accepting who she is- a lesbian.
Annie- a singer who is imaginative, creative and a little strange. But she is also optimistic and hopeful.
