wishful wednesday

Selamat hari Rabu dan selamat menyambut bulan Februari! Semoga hujan tidak membuat Rabumu jadi kelabu ya..

Saking ribetnya sama urusan kantor, dan berusaha mengikuti list reading challenge yang saya ikuti, saya sampai kelupaan mengamati perkembangan Newbery tahun ini. Tidak terasa, sudah terpilih saja lho pemenang Newbery untuk 2017!

Dan langsung bikin saya mupeng, karena bukunya memang sudah cukup lama jadi incaran akibat hypenya yang cukup lumayan di mana-mana.

The Girl Who Drank The Moon (Kelly Barnhill)

girl-who-drank-moon

Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. 

One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule–but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her–even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known.
 
The acclaimed author of The Witch’s Boy has created another epic coming-of-age fairy tale destined to become a modern classic.
