2010 book 237

Terry Pratchett's I Shall Wear Midnight
I've been very eagerly awaiting the fourth (and final?) Tiffany Aching book, Terry Pratchett's sort-of-YA series about a girl learning to be a witch. In this one, Tiffany is nearly sixteen and finally a full-fledged witch--only something is stirring up some very malevolent anti-witch sentiment. Plus there's the Wee Free Men, a loquacious young guard, some romantic disappointment, and a whole cadre of witches, along with Pratchett's usual amusing prose, so things don't disappoint. A/A-.
