The Witch Boy (Paperback)
When a mysterious danger threatens the other boys, Aster knows he can help -- as a witch. It will take the encouragement of a new friend, the non-magical and non-conforming Charlie, to convince Aster to try practicing his skills. And it will require even more courage to save his family . . . and be truly himself.

Totally wonderful. The Kingdom of Back was exciting and fun, full of plot twists and a few musical geniuses, Lu writes a beautiful story about the hidden Mozart. With characters full of emotion and flawlessly crafted, they add to the story and give subtle depth into the time and situation of Nannerl. Lu created a story worth reading for any one into historical fiction and women power. For readers ages 12+ - review by Kaitlyn, age 15
