and demon stamps his hand. Starts sucking the life out of him slowly
killing him over weeks. Boy lives with his mother and Aunt. Two witches who
wanted power of three so had him expecting him to be a girl. But as he was
a boy they abandoned him as a baby. He made his way home to them as a
troubled teen, they then realised what they had done, that he was a wisard.

takes his life force. Name of book and Author.

The Changeover by Margaret Mahy. The witches help the girl to access her
own powers; this rite is the 'Changeover' of the title. The boy is
called Sorenson, 'Sorry' for short.
Thanks heaps for answer.
