More About The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson
 
 
 
Overview
For fans of "The City of Ember" and "The School of Good and Evil, " the "New York Times" bestseller "The Mark of the Dragonfly" is a fast-paced adventure story about a mysterious girl and a fearless boy, set in a magical world that is both exciting and dangerous.
Piper has never seen the Mark of the Dragonfly until she finds the girl amid the wreckage of a caravan in the Meteor Fields.
The girl doesn t remember a thing about her life, but the intricate tattoo on her arm is proof that she s from the Dragonfly Territories and that she s protected by the king. Which means a reward for Piper if she can get the girl home.
The one sure way to the Territories is the 401, a great old beauty of a train. But a ticket costs more coin than Piper could make in a year. And stowing away is a difficult prospect everyone knows that getting past the peculiar green-eyed boy who stands guard is nearly impossible.
Life for Piper just turned dangerous. A little bit magical. And very exciting, "if" she can manage to survive the journey.
