Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I took a little break from the Dragonriders of Pern for a bit, believing, rightly, that it was a bit predictably icky when it came to certain 70's period mores. But I did come back and I'm glad I did.
This one is quite YA, a bit of a neglected-child chosen-one trope, but it wasn't too bad. After all, we get drakes... and dragons. An easy read and it has walk-on parts for some of the more classic characters.
Basically, I came to hate the locals, feel sorry for the kid, and feel happy she got a little happiness. All good.
