Luna by Julie Anne Peters

Luna

Julie Anne Peters

The subject is certainly unusual - about a youth who has always felt he is a girl - but this is a hugely entertaining and thought-provoking book. Regan loves her brother/sister Liam/Luna and I found I did too. I thought the depiction of their parents was especially real and very empathetic.

Extract

As I heard her slog across the floor toward my desk - where she'd unveiled her makeup caddy in all its glory - a sigh of resignation escaped my lips. Yeah, I loved her. I couldn't help it. She was my brother.
