The Girl Who Drank the Moon

Hi peeps! After a long  break i'm back!(kekonon ade yg rindu..perasan!haha)..orait! Let's continue with Newberry reading challenge and I just finished my reading.Still far from my reading challenge goal..i have to keep reading. Below is the details.

Title: The girl who drank the moon
Author: Kelly Barnhill
Publisher: Algonquin Young Readers
Publication Year: 2016
ISBN: 9780547907031



Usually we heard that a witch must be a old and cruel but for this book its totally opposite. Its began with each year the elders of the Protectorate civilization manipulate the villagers by taking the youngest born infant and leaving it in the woods as a sacrifice to the witch because they are told that is the only way to keep her from coming to kill them all...but really it’s just the elders trying to keep everyone scared enough to control, but what the townspeople don’t know is that the kind Witch Xan safely retrieves them all. Brings them to a better village/family every year, so nothing bad actually happens to them, but the parents of the children don't know that. They are suffering and going insane because they think their children are being sent off to die and the elders feed off of that

The way the author wrote it makes you never want to set it down.For those who like dragon you definitely have to read this book. It quite funny when the dragon taking care of the children,the way he raising the children.  I would recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy, magic, and mystery but bare in mind that this book also contain some part of implied violence such as the elders talk about having to kill people who are a problem or question things, there are torture chambers and people talk about people screaming. For me this book suitable for primary student Y5 and above.
