The writing in the story is so lyrical, so magical they words just wrap around you and steal into your heart. Luna, Luna, Luna the girl who drank the moon, the beautiful, complex protagonist. This is a story that you will want to bury yourself into. It is so hopeful, so full of love and loss and magic.
Luna is abandoned in the woods, left for the witch in a ritual the town follows every year. But the witch they believe in isn't who they think she is. Xan, the real witch doesn't understand why the Protectorate abandons a baby in the woods every year, but every year she comes to save them. When she takes Luna, she feeds her bits of stars to feed her. When she accidentally gives her some of the moon she knows she needs to raise her herself to protect her from the magic she has received from the moon. What grows is a beautiful story filled with interesting characters. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
