I'd have loved Star Dancer if I'd read it a few years ago. A strong main female character, an interesting portrayal of disability (Downs syndrome) in an Iron Age society, druids, magic, and a pragmatic view of stuff like childbirth and menstruation -- it happens, so let's not pretend it doesn't.

I still liked it a lot now, but it'd have come at the right time for me a few years ago. I'd say a teenager is likely to get the most out of it -- the plot is fairly straightforward and easily followed, and the main character is concerned with the sort of thing teenage girls are concerned with. It's well-paced and kept me turning pages, despite maybe feeling a bit too cynical and cranky to really go along with a Chosen One type of plot. ( )

When fifteen-year old Tegen is declared the Star Dancer - the one who will save her people from a terrible evil - she is stunned. Tegen has nothing in common with the mystical druids whose rituals protect her village. She's just a normal girl, not a hero. Then Tegen learns to work real magic with an enchanted silk shawl, and has no choice but to accept her destiny. But there are those who are hell bent on destroying her before she can fulfil the prophecy - and defeat the enemy that threatens her world ...
