This book is a great story about witches and shape-shifters. The theme is really nice, about breaking gender and societal norms. In this universe, boys grow up to shape-shift, and girls grow up and learn witchcraft. This story is about what happens when a boy can't shift and finds more interest in witchcraft. What does he do? What does the family do? That's there, along with a mystery about a cursed monster kidnapping boys and there's also a human girl learned about magic kind. With all these stories interwoven, it goes straight to the top of my book list.
