Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 reveals herself only at night. For years, Liam has transformed himself into the beautiful girl he longs to be with help from his sister's clothes and makeup in the secrecy of their basement bedrooms. 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 a groundbreaking novel about a transgender teen's struggle for self-identity and acceptance.

Review:

"The story deftly portrays the experience of trans-gender teenagers and both Regan and Liam are engaging characters. While those struggling with sexual identity may find this novel particularly resonant, all readers will be able to relate to Liam and Regan's desires for 'normalcy' and self-acceptance." Children's Literature

Review:

"I read it in one sitting, and although I do not know anyone who is transgendered, the author gets big points from me for making a risky topic believable, respectful, and appropriate for all ages." VOYA

Review:

"Peters writes with great empathy and provides her readers with carefully chosen information about transexuality and the quest to become whole." KLIATT

Review:

"[T]his novel breaks new ground in YA literature with a sensitive and poignant portrayal of a young man's determination to live his true identity and his family's struggle to accept Luna for who she really is." School Library Journal

Luna is such a great book. It really capture the life of s trans-gender. The struggle with his everyday life, just trying to fit in. This book was so hard to peel my eyes away from.
