“The Girl Who Drank the Moon” is a fantasy novel written by Kelly Barnhill and published in 2016. The story is set in a magical world filled with enchanting creatures, mysterious forests, and powerful sorcery.

At the heart of the story is Luna, a young girl who lives in the Protectorate, a town ruled by fear and superstition. Every year, the townspeople sacrifice a baby to the evil witch who they believe inhabits the nearby forest. However, unbeknownst to them, the witch, Xan, is actually a kind-hearted soul who rescues the abandoned infants and takes them to families in other villages.

One year, Xan accidentally feeds Luna moonlight instead of starlight, imbuing her with powerful magic. Realizing the extent of Luna’s potential, Xan decides to raise her as her own granddaughter. As Luna grows older, she discovers her magical abilities and embarks on a journey to uncover the truth about her past and the secrets of her world.

Meanwhile, in the Protectorate, a young man named Antain questions the town’s traditions and seeks to challenge the oppressive rule of the Elders. His journey intersects with Luna’s quest, leading to a series of revelations and confrontations that will change the fate of the Protectorate forever.
