my bookreview: Aissa seems to have been cursed since the very beginning of her life. A series of misfortunes causes her to be cast out everywhere she goes. In order to regain dignity and identity she will do everything she can. Every year, two tributes are taken away as bull dancers. This seems to be her chance to change her life. If Aissa can be one of them and survive it, she will return to the island as a hero, freeing her people from the terrible sacrifice.
Dragonfly Song is a beautiful and lyrical novel that fills you with both heartbreaking and hopeful feelings. Don’t wait to join Aissa on this mythological quest!
