This book was definitely outside of my usual reading comfort zone. It isn’t that I don’t support this life choice or have empathy for someone like the character Liam/Luna, in fact I was a flower-girl at my “uncle’s” wedding to a beautiful MTF bride, but it’s not the genre I typically pick up. That being said I loved this book. It’s not only about questioning identity or accepting that someone you thought you knew was actually someone else the entire time. It’s about family, it’s about growing up, it’s about being courageous and taking the initiative to be who you’ve always wanted to be, whether that’s a different gender or the girl who actually gets the guy.
Of course I cried during it because it made me think of my own brother. Not that he’s transgender, but even if he were I would protect him and support him, just like Regan did for Liam. There’s no love like the one between a brother and sister.
I definitely recommend this book and I’m so glad it was recommended to me!
