Regan’s brother, Liam, is one person by day and another by night. Literally. During the day, he is Liam but during the night, his inner-self comes out in the form of Luna, a girl. She spends the night in her sister’s bed room, trying on wigs and clothes.
Regan is the only one who knows about Liam’s true identity and she isn’t exactly sure how to deal with it. Besides dealing with Liam, she struggles with normal teen problems – boys, grades, and her job.
When I picked up this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. For my local book club, we had to read a book about accepting people and another one of the girls suggested this book to me. I have absolutely no problem with the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender issue but I wasn’t sure if I could handle reading about it in detail, especially not knowing what to expect. However, since I respect Julie Anne Peters as an author (Far From Xanadu is brilliant), I decided to give it a try. I wasn’t let down.
This book is great and you should definitely read it as long as transgender doesn’t bother you. It doesn’t go into too much detail, but explains the struggles of Regan dealing with her older brother whom is truly a girl inside. The characters are believable, the dialogue is great, and the plot is amazing. It’s definitely a book you won’t want to put down once you start. I read it in less than five hours with a few breaks. Even if you aren’t sure you’ll like it, give this book a chance!
