The Witch's Boy by Kelly Barnhill
Ned was the wrong boy . . . the wrong boy that was saved when both he and his twin brother went into the river. He's been ostracized by the villagers ever since he was saved. But when bandits come to his town to steal the magic his mother safeguards, it is Ned who saves the magic. Together with Aine, the Bandit King's daughter, they travel through the Woods trying to keep the magic and his kingdom safe.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the fact that even though it was a children's book, I didn't exactly know where it was going. It kept you guessing throughout the story. The characters were interesting. And I loved the bits of humor that were injected into the final part of the book.
