Clair de Lune

Cassandra Golds

Cassandra Golds' Clair de Lune tells the fictional story of a who couldn’t speak but who could dance. Clair de Lune lives with her grandmother because her mother died when she was born. Clair de Lune doesn’t have any friends because she is so different. People judge her because she doesn’t have any parents and because she lives in poverty. I would give this book a three (out of 1-4, with 4 being the best) because it is interesting and because it has some French words in it. Somebody who likes different languages and fictional stories with realistic characters would enjoy reading this book.
