Recently awarded the 2017 Newbery Medal for outstanding contribution to children's literature.

The people of the Protectorate fear the witch living in the woods so much, they leave a newborn baby in the woods every year as a sacrifice. Xan is odd and has magic, but doesn't eat babies - she makes sure each finds a new family. One year she accidentally feeds a baby moonlight and decides to raise that child as her own.
