The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a lovely read! So glad this won the Newbery--it's one of the best fantasies I've read in a long time! And I think teens and adults will love it, too. Like all fantasies, parts of the book are familiar--quests, witches, dragons, bad authority figures--but Barnhill combines it all with grace and humor and tons of magic.
I did think that Gherland was going to be redeemed at the end--didn't the book hint at it? I was hoping for forgiveness.....
