329L: Boy Who Could Unmake Things

I’m looking for a book I read in the 80s (I think) about a world in which the typical magic was to be able to create things, but one boy is able to unmake things and everybody either wants to use him or kill him. It’s possible this boy is actually a girl, but I’m leaning toward it being a boy.

  1. Two long-shot possibilities, though they’re both from a couple of decades later:

    GIFTS by Ursula K. Le Guin (2004)

    A FISTFUL OF SKY by Nina Kiriki Hoffman (2002)
