Luna: A Must Read Novel!

"I love her, she's my brother."
Luna is a fantastic novel that touched my soul. After reading the story of a boy named Liam whose only wish is to have the body of a girl. I was filled with awe, respect and a unique kind of love for trans-gendered people. Luna is told from Regan's perspective, (Liam's sister) the only person that knows who Liam truly is on the inside. Regan shared her heart shattering experiences with Liam, or should I say Luna? Luna is the name Liam chose for the girl he really is.

This book is one of the very few that brought tears to my eyes. I cried for sorrow, for joy, excitement, justice and so much more. It shows the depth, loneliness and depression transsexuals often go through. In a society full of closed minds, unacepting parents and peers, transsexual people are very likely to like a lie! Pretending to be somebody your not, is that living? To me its not. Its no wonder these people live in fear every single day. Even when they want to express themselves to their families, to the world by dressing the way they feel on the inside. A shadow of fear will follow them everywhere they go. A fear of not being accepted, being judged or even being physically and verbally harassed. Bruises will heal but words will leave a scar for life.

This novel also got me thinking, what if I had a boy's body when I know Im a girl! How would I cope with that? How would you? People are always saying, "It's the inside that counts" If this is true, then what makes it so hard to accept somebody that's different from us?

This book also made me realize a huge difference between gays and transsexuals that many people don't understand. Transsexuals are not attracted to their same sex; it only seems that way because we forget that they are stuck in the body of the opposite sex. They don't choose to be trans, just like we don't choose who our parents are or what our hair color is. On the other hand, gays are attracted to the same sex, and some people are even born being gay; others choose to be gay as a lifestyle but gays and trans have something in common; they both deserve respect, just like you and I.

To conclude this, Luna is an intriguing masterpiece about a girl stuck in the body of a boy with a bittersweet ending. Luna leaves you satisfied, but craving for more at the same time. I believe that everybody should read this mind-opening novel.

i loved almost everything about the book but the constant dramatic smashes to the face and abrupted ending stopped me from truely loving everything. I dont regret buying and reading this book, infact i have recommended it to friends, i just wish there was a sequel or something to give a little more to the story. 3-4 stars all in all.

    Not what you expect.

    This book is not what I expected. I expected a excellent novel on the emotions of a confused teen and his/her sister. And yet I got bored after the first few chapters. Just to say I've read better.
