In Kelly Barnhill's young-adult fantasy novel The Girl Who Drank the Moon, a powerful group of elders bring sorrow to the people living in a place called the Protectorate, causing the townspeople to become powerless. Every year, the Protectorate sacrifices a baby, leaving it as an offering in the woods for the supposedly evil witch who dwells there. However, the townspeople have been tricked by the elders, and although there is a witch living in the forest, she is a kind and loving witch who cannot understand the cruel Protectorate. This Newberry award-winning novel explores themes of lost memories, miscommunication, knowledge, and personal resilience.
