Lisa Flemming | 9 comments Hi! I'm looking for a book that I read as a teenager. It "may" have been written in the 80's but I can't be totally sure. The main character was an alien girl with gold coloured hair. Not blonde-gold but "gold gold". The hair colour was made a big deal of and I remember the character being asked how she managed to dye her hair that colour. This alien girl went to a normal earth school and not many people knew she was an alien. I've hit the Google and didn't get anywhere. Any help appreciated! :)

Lisa, what year did you read this book? This will help us narrow down the search.

Is this a YA science fiction or fantasy book? Any romance?

Lisa Flemming | 9 comments I think I read it in about 1988 or 1989. I'm very fuzzy on the details but I'd say it was more a sci-fi than a fantasy. I don't remember any romance, if there was any it was fairly subtle.
