Congratulations Ladies! You will enjoy this book.
For those of you who didn't win this book, you can purchase the book in bookstores on September 16th. You can also pre-order.
Here is an excerpt from my book review:
I love the images that Barnhill provokes with her writing. My mind was busy painting with Barnhill's words and my heart was beating in time with the story and it was magic. Magic for me is when the writer, the story and the reader connect. Like when the fairy tale world collides with the real world and there is a flash of lightning. The Witch's Boy will get in your bones and leave its writing on your skin and you will experience how trees move, and stones speak, and you will hear the wolf howl and feel the magic breathe.
The Witch's Boy is creative and endearing and a sweet, wonderful story. It will make you want to hug your friends and hold onto to your family.
