Summary
Wendy Orr has created a fabulous story about a girl, the first-born daughter of a priestess, who is abandoned at birth and lives amongst the slaves. At age twelve she learns her name, Aissa, and joins the acrobatic bull dancers who are sent away to compete on the island of the Bull King. The little girl found under a bush has no name and cannot speak. Is she a miracle child who escaped the raiders, or is she a bad-luck child, the one who called the Bull King's ship to the island? No one sees the mama-stone around her neck, with the sign of the dragonfly. And only Luki, in training to leap the bulls, knows that she charmed the viper who would have killed him. When the girl turns twelve, she discovers her name - Aissa - and she knows that her one chance to live freely is to become a bull dancer, and be taken away to the island of the Bull King
