“Luna” by Julie Anne Peters

31 May

TEEN LIBRARIAN'S REVIEW:

Sophomore girl Regan narrates the story of her transgendered older brother, Liam (Luna). Luna only emerges at night, in Regan’s bedroom, where she puts on dresses, wigs, makeup and gets to act truly free. The story is intercut with episodes from Regan and Liam’s childhood, some of which are terribly painful to read. Regan’s whole life is devoted to Liam, to being there for him and going to great, sometimes costly lengths to keep his secret. Regan has no friends and is a true loner, until she meets Chris in her chemistry class and realizes how much fun they have together. The story follows Regan and Chris' new relationship, as well as Liam's halting efforts to let Luna emerge in public as his 18th birthday approaches. This book is troubling, beautiful, and painfully honest … often all at the same time. It's probably not for everyone, but if you're looking for a well-written book that will stay with you afterward, "Luna" may be for you.
