Before i read this book, i sort of disliked transsexuals. I thought they were groce but this book just opened up my heart to them. Julie put the readers in a transsexuals point of view and helped us understand that transsexuals weren’t just lustful people. They had feelings also. The main character; Luna, is really a girl trapped in a boys body. She spends most of her life trying to keep her identity a secret till finally she’s had enough. She starts to become public, her/his sister now, stands by his sister all the time but the pressure is starting to break down.The book itself is a masterpiece, i can’t say much or I’d spoil the book, i cried like a baby after finishing this book, i had to read it over and over again. My heat goes out to all gays/lesbian/transsexuals, any people in that manner. With life already being a struggle imagine being trapped in your own body and trying to pretend to be someone else? 5 out of 5 stars. ❤
