Luna

by Julie Anne Peters - £7.99  Little, Brown Book Group (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780316011273 | ISBN 10: 0316011274

Regan has always been there for her transgender brother, Liam, sacrificing her needs for his, but when he announces that he is ready to 'transition' into Luna permanently, Regan is not sure she can handle the consequences.
 
Told from Regan's point of view in the present and in flashback, this novel breaks new ground in Young Adult literature with a sensitive and poignant portrayal of a young man's determination to live his true identity and his family's struggle to accept Luna for who he really is.

"Peters writes her characters with care and complecity. Regan's clumsy new romance and Luna's coming out to a lifelong friends who's in love with Liam shiver with tenuousness, but find hope."
(Kirkus Reviews )
