The middle grade debut of Molly Ostertag, co-creator of the popular web comic “Strong Female Protagonist”.

Unfortunately for Aster, he is fascinated by witchery. When his skills are needed to save the other boys in his family from a mysterious danger, Aster will need to summon the courage to save his family, and be truly himself. This refreshing story features a diverse cast and tackles gender norms in a lightly fantasy setting.
