We‘ve had so many rainbows lately, if this isn‘t Pride month then I don‘t know what is! In your face, assholes! #lovewins
An early lunch then a trip to the Friends of the Library book sale . Totally Super Saturday! 😀🐉 I may have picked up a few #blameitonLitsy
I have so many mixed feelings about this book, but mixed in the greatest way. It‘s the story of a teen transgender woman thru the experience of her cis-gender sister. I love the complexity of the 2 girls; you can see the myopic teen selfishness of both as well as their love & acceptance (though sometimes it‘s a conflicted acceptance) of one another. But I will say you will so one to destroy the parental units in this tale-now they horrified me.
Eh. I couldn't help but be irritated by the fact that it was told from the sister's POV. I get this was a big deal at the time it was published but there are so many books out there now that are written by and about trans people that I was disappointed in this one and the constant misgendering. I also thought about how hurtful it could be to read this as a trans person and read the many horrible things that Regan thought about and said to Luna.
We had to say goodbye to our beautiful Luna yesterday. She was 18 and had kidney disease but it was still a bit unexpectedly soon. I can't say enough good things about having a wonderful vet come to your house so you can say goodbye peacefully. We love her so much and will miss her terribly. 💔
I loved this book so much. It is a wonderful coming if age book. To witness Luna's transformation through Regan's eyes was both heartwarming and at times heartbreaking. We all need a sister like Regan. This gem is a solid 4 stars ⭐️⭐⭐⭐ 🏳️🌈#translit #transbooks
Just starting this. Really looking forward to it 🏳️🌈
I was enjoying this book until this diva flopped herself on my arm. #catsoflitsy
I liked that this story was told from the sister‘s perspective and found Regan to be a believable teenage girl. Sometimes selfish and downright stupid. She could be resentful of Liam/Luna‘s struggles, but tried to support her sibling. My daughter recommended this book for the #readharder 2016 Challenge as my book about a person who identifies as transgender. This book made me mad at people‘s attitudes and had me crying in a few places.
In a world where there is so much hate, this book is part of a crucial body of work: stories that illuminate the diverse experiences of people who identify as LGBTQIA. This book feels like it encompasses many of the complexities of what it means to grow up trans.
