Join us in reading the 2017 Newberry Medal Winner The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. Xan, the witch in the forest, is kind. Each year she rescues a baby left as a sacrifice to her from the people of the Protectorate. A fantastical adventure begins one year when Xan accidentally feeds rescued baby Luna moonlight instead of starlight. Luna is filled with magic. Xan decides to raise Luna as her own and protect her until she is able to use her magic when she turns thirteen. At the time that Luna discovers her magic, Xan is in trouble and Luna must protect her.
