Book Review of “Keep Austin Wierd” by Mary Jane

Keep Austin Weird: A Lesbian Superhero Love Story for Grown-UpsKeep Austin Weird: A Lesbian Superhero Love Story for Grown-Ups by Mary Jane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I very much enjoyed this book. Ellinore is an elementary school guidance counselor with a super power. When she touches someone she can see visions of that person’s best self. When she meets Kim, a kindergarten teacher at the school where she works, she sees her best self as being a percussionist playing the timpani in a symphony orchestra. When Kim gets her to tell her what she has seen, Kim eventually leaves teaching to pursue a career in music.

Kim and Ellinore become lovers first and then life partners. However, there is absolutely no sex in this book. The closest they get is exchanging a hug and kiss from time to time. This book suffers not at all from the lack of sex either. In fact it proves that is completely possible to have gay characters without sex and have an awesome story.

I will be reading more books from this author!
