When the Moon was Ours

When the Moon was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore (Thomas Dunne, 2016) Young adult magic realism so steeped in wonder as to be almost a fairy tale. McLemore crafts a rich, sad tale of gender identities, fears and prejudices; of self-determination. Dreamlike imagery hangs thick, leaving little breathing room for a more traditional narrative.
