Luna Jealousy

By Julie Anne Peters

Jealousy

Sometimes things get a little dicey between Luna and Regan in Luna. Though the sisters are awfully close and share everything, Luna sometimes gets jealous—after all, Regan has what she wants more than anything. Regan is seen as a girl and doesn't have to fight against society or her family for people to accept that. Luna, on the other hand, has to hide in shame and deal with her parents potentially disowning her if she comes out of the closet.

Jealousy is a two-way street though, and even though Regan's life may be easier in some respects, she envies Luna because Luna gets better grades, more of the attention, and is usually the priority in their relationship. The tricky part now is making sure that jealousy doesn't ruin everything between them.

Rifts between Luna and Regan occur when Regan begins to resent her sibling for forcing her to lie all the time because Regan is envious of those who have transparent families and wishes that she could have the same.
