Named a Fall 2017 Publisher’s Weekly Flying Start and winner of the Best Mainstream Comic Prism Award, the Cybils Award, and the EBSCO SEE-IT Award, THE WITCH BOY is Molly Ostertag’s debut middle grade graphic novel.

Even magic has rules . . .

Everyone in Aster’s family is born with magic. Boys grow up to be shapeshifters; girls into witches. No exceptions.

But Aster can’t seem to get the hang of shapeshifting. Instead, he spends his time spying on the witchery lessons the girls are getting. He seems to have a knack for casting spells and wants to know more, but the only person he can share his growing gift with is Charlie, a girl from the non-magical side of town.

Then, during a night of shapeshifting practice, one of the boys goes missing. Aster knows he can search for the boy with the witchcraft he’s been secretly learning. Could breaking his family’s most important tradition save the day—or ruin everything?
