The Girl Who Drank the Moon / Kelly Barnhill

Every year, on the Day of Sacrifice, the people of the Protectorate leave the youngest baby of the village as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest.  Unbeknownst to the villagers, the Witch is actually kind.  She takes the sacrificed babies to live with loving families in other towns, until the day she rescues a child she can’t live without.  A story of magic, adventure and family, recommended for readers ages 10 and up.
