Luna by Julie Anne Peters

Title: Luna

Author: Julie Anne Peters

Publisher: Little Brown

Pages: 248

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.

Opinion: I have to say that this is one of the most intense books I have read in a while but intense in the best possible way ever. I completely fell in love with all the characters I sympathized with regan and felt Liam’s pain. Don’t let the synopsis scare you away this book is for everybody not just the LGBT community I know that because I thought that I wouldn’t be able to relate but I did. I think this book goes beyond being confused in sexual orientation it is for anybody who has ever felt like they couldn’t be themselves because they wouldn’t be accepted or they would be discriminated. I was literally crying from beginning to end I swear this is one of those few books that just changes your views and outlook on life. Just keep an open mind while reading this book. I give it a 5/5.
