    A fantastic YA novel that explores gender

    Two Dark Moons is made up of my favourite things, lizards, queerness and a new take on fantasy worlds. Sohmeng Par is ready to prove to everyone she's ready to grow up if only she would be given a chance. Luckily or unluckily for her, she literally falls out of the world she's grown up in and down into another: one that brings many questions, predators and a possible new family. The first thing that stood out in this novel was the world-building, Silver has created a world in which gender and social roles are derived from one's horoscope. Silver delves into themes such as one's role within their community & if gods or community leaders predestine our lives. Or if we can make something of ourselves from our own choosing. Their protagonist, Sohmeng Par, is a wonderful person to follow. She has the right amount of defiance a YA protagonist should have. With awareness and care for how she impacts herself and community (and her worries of too-muchness! Something I'm sure many of us feel). Her relationships with her older brother (who is attempting courtship, and I saw my own brother in him) her community are both realistic and moving. Her relationship with Hei, our lizardy friend, is also wonderful to read. I love Hei so much; they are an amazingly funny and complicated character. The character development we see is fantastic, and I can't wait to see how Sohmeng and Hei will continue to grow as individuals and together later in the series. A truly fantastic blend of gender identity, self-worth, social position, and the ethical dilemma of biting people you just met!
