The Witch Boy. Thirteen-year-old Aster grows up in a magical family where women are witches and men become animal shapeshifters. In his world, gender-based roles are clearly defined, and anyone who crosses the line is cast out. Unlucky for Aster, then, that he's much more drawn to witchcraft than shifting.

Written by a queer author, this graphic novel is super diverse and bends "traditional gender roles" assigned to boys and girls in this world. It was a quick read and really really great, can't read to read the next book in the series!
