Even magic has rules, and Aster seems to be breaking them. Instead of shapeshifting, like boys are supposed to, he likes witchcraft, which is girls’ territory. During a night of shapeshifting practice, one of the boys goes missing. Aster knows he can solve the mystery—with witchcraft. Will he find the courage to use his secret skills, and to be truly himself?
