In the magical time between night and day, when both the sun and the moon are in the sky, a child is born in a little blue house on a hill. And Miu Lan is not just any child, but one who can change into any shape they can imagine. The only problem is they can't decide what to be: a boy or a girl? A flower or a shooting star? At school, though, they must endure inquisitive looks and difficult questions from the other children, and have trouble finding friends who will accept them for who they are. But they find comfort in the loving arms of their mother, who will love them just as they are.

A beautiful book that describes how a child and mother navigate the start of school for a child who doesn’t fall into the typical boxes. As a mom of a gender variant 6 yr old, we both loved this book. We read it every night for weeks.

I'm an adult with a complicated gender, and the first time I read this book to my little nephew I nearly cried. I was surprised by how much it impacted me to see a story where being different is celebrated and a family's love is never in doubt. I wish I'd had it read to me when I was a kid.
