Luna

by Julie Anna Peters

Summary

This book is about a 16 year old girl named Regan with a brother named Liam, who is trying to come out as a transgender girl. Only Regan knows about Luna, Liam's true self that can only be seen at night when she dresses up in girl's clothes and puts up makeup and wigs. Regan struggles with not only trying to support Luna as she tries to come out and start transitioning, but with a new relationship with a boy.

"'I have to transition. I don't care how much it costs. I have to transition now.' (Peters 76)

Who would enjoy this book?

This book is aimed at teenagers who are interested in understanding transgender people. Since the stry is told through Regan's eyes, it is easier to understand on a cisgender perspectve. However, Regan displays transphobia and hate throughout the book, so the reader would still have to have a basic understabding of the trans* community and what is considered offensive to them.
