The Witch’s Boy
by Kelly Barnhill
Ned is known as a “wrong boy” in his village, and Aine is the daughter of the Bandit King. When the Bandit King tries to steal the magic from Ned’s mother, only this “wrong boy” can protect it. As war threatens two kingdoms, Ned and Aine must learn to trust each other long enough to save them. Now the fate of the kingdoms rests in the hands of a stuttering boy, a wary girl, a wolf, and the last magic in the world. The Witch’s Boy is an incredible tale filled with love, sorrow, magic, and friendship.
