This SF novel is the 2017 Newbery medal winner & NY Times Best Seller that I would use for IR or LC. The people of the Protectorate live in fear of the evil witch who haunts the forest. She will leave them alone, but they must bring her a newborn baby every year, or so they think. When Xan, a good witch, rescues baby Luna, she accidentally feeds her moonlight instead of starlight which fills her with magical powers.
