Dragonfly song, by Wendy Orr (1953-)
This book is about Aissa (which means dragonfly) who’s adopted family is murdered. She is made to be a slave and cannot speak. This book was well written but I think it is more suited to children older than me as it took me a long time to read. My sister thought it was excellent. I would recommend this book to people 10+.
