The Witch Boy

by Molly Ostertag. New York, NY: Scholastic Graphix, 2017

In Aster's world, girls become witches and boys become shifters. The problem is that in his heart, Aster knows he's a witch. Trying hard as he does, he just can't shift into an animal like the other boys. This is about Aster's search to find himself, find a missing friend, and learn how to somehow reach his parents and elders who don't understand him.
