Menolly needs more than music's power in the second book in the Harper Hall trilogy, set within science fiction legend Anne McCaffrey's beloved and bestselling Dragonriders of Pern series.

Pursuing her dream to be a Harper of Pern, Menolly studies under the Masterharper and quickly learns that more is required than a facility with music and a clever way with words. The Masterharper gives her a difficult time simply because she is a young woman, and she manages to alienate more of her fellow harpers than she makes friends. Menolly must rise up and prove that a woman is just as capable as any of her male fellow students--and if she can, she will shape the future of Pern.

I've re-read this trilogy over the past 2 days and it's just as good now as it was when I found it years ago when first published. Love, love love Menolly!! She's stronger than she realizes she is!

And yes, I want a fire lizard or 3

This is one of those books that even though I re-read it more than 20 times it's just as good when I'm 36 is it was when I was 12 and I still cry in all the same places.

Menolly has been found and moved with her firelizards to Harper Hall to learn more about music. She's the only girl Harper though and must overcome sexist assumptions, and make new friends.
