At 13-ish, Aster has reached the age when boys in his magical family begin to shapeshift into fierce animals who can protect their clans. Aster hasn't shifted yet -- and what's more, he doesn't really want to. He's drawn to the witchcraft his sister and female cousins are being taught. His family is rigidly devoted to their gender divide, and he's both discouraged and mocked at his every attempt to learn spells. But when a monster threatens his family, Aster is determined to help keep everyone safe, even if his talents aren't exactly acceptable.This book is both powerful and charming! I absolutely loved the artwork -- it's perfect for this sweet, taut story.
