Howl’s moving castle – Diana Wynne Jones

In the magical land of Ingary, Sophie Hatter attracts the attention of the malicious Witch of the Waste and is put under a horrid spell. She seeks refuge inside the strange moving castle of the wizard Howl (although he’s rumoured to eat the hearts of young girls). To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must strike a bargain with a fire demon and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way she discovers that there’s far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye. In this intricate, humorous and puzzling tale of fantasy and adventure, destinies are intertwined, identities exchanged, lovers confused and people and things are never quite what they seem.
