The Witch's Boy

by Kelly Barnhill

eBook

1 of 1 copy available

"This spellbinding fantasy begs for a cozy chair and several hours of uninterrupted reading time." —The Washington Post
When Ned and his identical twin brother tumble from their raft into a raging river, only Ned survives. Villagers are convinced the wrong boy lived. Across the forest that borders Ned's village, Áine, the daughter of the Bandit King, is haunted by her mother's last words: "The wrong boy will save your life, and you will save his." When the Bandit King comes to steal the magic Ned's mother, a witch, is meant to protect, Áine and Ned meet. Can they trust each other long enough to cross a dangerous enchanted forest and stop the war about to boil over between their two kingdoms?
"Barnhill is a fantasist on the order of Neil Gaiman." —Minneapolis Star Tribune
"[The Witch's Boy] should open young readers' eyes to something that is all around them in the very world we live in: the magic of words." —The New York Times
"This is a book to treasure." —Nerdy Book Club
