“The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
A YA fantasy novel that has a lot of heart. There were lots of elements going on in this story: a bad witch, girl discovering magic, man trying to defend his family, and an old witch trying to do some good in the world.
I only heard about this because somebody in our reading group was excited about the release of the Chinese translation of the book. I’m glad I stumbled onto this book. My friends say Barnhill’s first book was even better than this, so I may have to read that too.
Some might be turned off by a book classified as YA, but don’t be. YA fiction to me is just simple stories, without all the fluff. They are stories that can be equally enjoyable to young and old.
