Regan's brother Liam can't stand the person he is during the day. Like the moon from whom Liam has chosen his female namesake, his true self, Luna, only reveals herself at night. In the secrecy of his basement bedroom Liam transforms himself into the beautiful girl he longs to be, with help from his sister's clothes and makeup. Now, everything is about to change-Luna is preparing to emerge from her cocoon. But are Liam's family and friends ready to welcome Luna into their lives? Compelling and provocative, this is an unforgettable novel about a transgender teen's struggle for self-identity and acceptance.

The distance between us seemed to grow. Or shrink. I‘m not sure which. We were planets at opposite ends of the universe, orbiting a dying sun.

“I may be late again tonight. I have a hair appointment at four. Reagan, why don‘t you throw together a tuna noodle casserole for dinner. You know the ingredients.”
Sure. Eye of newt. Tongue of snake.

(Sounds about right!🤢)

I have so many mixed feelings about this book, but mixed in the greatest way. It‘s the story of a teen transgender woman thru the experience of her cis-gender sister. I love the complexity of the 2 girls; you can see the myopic teen selfishness of both as well as their love & acceptance (though sometimes it‘s a conflicted acceptance) of one another. But I will say you will so one to destroy the parental units in this tale-now they horrified me.

CouronneDhiver Interesting! 2y

Eh. I couldn't help but be irritated by the fact that it was told from the sister's POV. I get this was a big deal at the time it was published but there are so many books out there now that are written by and about trans people that I was disappointed in this one and the constant misgendering. I also thought about how hurtful it could be to read this as a trans person and read the many horrible things that Regan thought about and said to Luna.

We had to say goodbye to our beautiful Luna yesterday. She was 18 and had kidney disease but it was still a bit unexpectedly soon. I can't say enough good things about having a wonderful vet come to your house so you can say goodbye peacefully. We love her so much and will miss her terribly. 💔

LectricSheep I'm so sorry! I lost an old kitty to kidney disease two years ago. It's quick but pretty painless for them, which I took comfort in. ❤️ 2y

I don't have a picture of the book, so here's a picture of a motel sign with a tiny moon in the background. It's similar? 🌝🌒🙄😅 #YAYAY1 @Liberty

I loved this book so much. It is a wonderful coming if age book. To witness Luna's transformation through Regan's eyes was both heartwarming and at times heartbreaking. We all need a sister like Regan. This gem is a solid 4 stars ⭐️⭐⭐⭐ 🏳️‍🌈#translit #transbooks

Bibliogeekery Loved it too! 😍 3y
Avidreader6 Such a great book. I remember reading it when I was a teenage and crying over Luna and how beautiful the writing was. 3y

I liked that this story was told from the sister‘s perspective and found Regan to be a believable teenage girl. Sometimes selfish and downright stupid. She could be resentful of Liam/Luna‘s struggles, but tried to support her sibling. My daughter recommended this book for the #readharder 2016 Challenge as my book about a person who identifies as transgender. This book made me mad at people‘s attitudes and had me crying in a few places.

Overall, Luna was a good story. However, it was a little too simplistic for my taste. Nevertheless, I would still recommend this book.

In a world where there is so much hate, this book is part of a crucial body of work: stories that illuminate the diverse experiences of people who identify as LGBTQIA. This book feels like it encompasses many of the complexities of what it means to grow up trans.

Notafraidofwords I read this in high school and it changed my life. 3y
nicolekukral It was an illuminating book 3y
