From the Publisher
Annotation High school sophomore Regan grapples with the tensions stemming from her older brother Liam's longing to change genders and become Luna, a glamorous female. Supportive Regan has always been Liam's confidant and helped him whenever she could, including buying women's lingerie for him to wear in the privacy of their house. Now Liam gets bolder, gradually dressing as Luna in public places until their astonished friends and incredulous parents finally learn the secret. Regan feels the heat, especially while trying to start a relationship with a boy at school. She sometimes resents her brother for "ruining my chances for any kind of ordinary existence," and grows increasingly panicked as Liam threatens to make his Luna identity permanent. Frank discussions between the siblings ensue about hormone therapy and a sex change operation.
Editors Note 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.
Editors Note 2 With the help of his sister, Liam is able to secretly transform himself into a girl when evening falls, but now Liam wants to present his female persona to the world and fears what his family will think when he reveals herself to them. An ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Reprint.
