The title character of this book, Luna, is incredibly selfish and really unlikable. She is self-absorbed and never considers anyone else.

There are also a lot of other problems with the storytelling, such as that characters constantly contradict themselves for no reason, leaving the reader left without any sense of what the characters actually believe.

Also, Peters is clearly trying to break down gender stereotypes with this book and instead reinforces them stronger than ever.

This just scratches the surface. . .

I really liked this book because it gives you an idea about what transexuality is, I didn't really understand what transexuality was so it was a really interesting read.

I read this book in french, it's not bad at all. Pretty good actually. I found myself learning a lot about what I didn't know before regarding transsexuality. It put me in Luna's position. Although the book finishes without the actual ending, I still loved it and I am dying to know what really happens to Luna in the end.

One of the first books I've read that really made me take an interest in transexuality. Still one of my favorite books on the topic. My friend read it and said it was awful, so I can say I was happily surprised I enjoyed it. Couldn't have been any better if it tried! :)

This was an amazing book. I enjoyed the point of view of the novel. It would've been to predictable for it to have been told from "Liam's" point of view.
