Dragonfly Song by Wendy Orr is a Junior Library Guild 2017 selection

Posted on June 2nd, 2017 by pajamapress

DragonflySong_WebsiteWe are thrilled to welcome the award-winning author of Nim’s Island, Wendy Orr, to Pajama Press, and proudly so with a Junior Library Guild Selection for her new fantasy novel, Dragonfly Song.

In Dragonfly Song, Orr weaves an intriguing mythological portrayal of the Bronze Age Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, where subject nations are forced to send youths each year to dance with bulls in the god-king’s bloody ceremonies. Inspired by Crete’s frescoes showing figures leaping over the backs of bulls, and by the legend of the Minotaur, Orr spins a gripping story of danger and destiny that will appeal to fans of Percy Jackson and The Hunger Games.

Aissa is a resourceful and persistent heroine who possesses a mysterious bond with animals. Mute since the traumatic raider attack that took the only family she ever knew, and spurned by a community that thinks she carries bad luck, Aissa takes her survival, identity, and destiny into her own hands. In a world where the gods demand perfection, Aissa—scarred, silent, and rejected—dares to be resilient enough to fight for her own worth.

Pajama Press thanks the Junior Library Guild for their continued dedication to servicing thousands of school and public libraries in North America with the best of children’s and young adult books.
