Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire

"Not everyone is born a witch or a saint.  Not everyone is born talented, or crooked, or blessed; some are born definite in no particular at all.  We are a fountain of shimmering contradictions, most of us.  Beautiful in the concept, if we're luck, but frequently tedious or regrettable as we flesh ourselves out."
