The Witch's Boy

Staff Review: The Witch's Boy

"The Witch's Boy" by Kelly Barnhill

Cover: 'The Witch's Boy'

Ned’s father could only save one of his identical twin sons from drowning, but the people in the village agree that he saved the wrong boy. Ned is unsure of himself and stammers, yet when the Bandit King threatens to steal the magic his mother, Sister Witch, has spent her life protecting, he finds a courage he didn’t know he had.  Crossing the enchanted forest with the magic tormenting him, he runs into Aine, a girl who is haunted by her mother’s last words, “a wrong boy will save your life and you will save his”. With its well developed characters, this wonderfully written, engaging tween fantasy of friendship, love, trust, and the power of goodness will keep readers captivated.
