A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Looking back on all the Tiffany Aching books in Discworld, I have nothing bad to say about any of them except that they are sometimes.... not that special.
Damned by faint praise!
In actuality, the whole thing is very charming, often clever, and it is definitely an eye-opener for our 11-year-old witch. But as for learning the witchy trade? Yep, it's fairly cool and definitely a trip for the heads-that-be, but other than having a hive-mind baddie that wants a very special wish, the whole thing is a light adventure in dealing with classmates and bad teachers.
I still enjoyed it, though. This is Pratchett! He's almost always funny! :)
