Publisher's summary

For fans of Frozen, The City of Ember, and The School for Good and Evil, the New York Times best seller 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.

Praise for The Mark of the Dragonfly:

“This magnetic middle-grade debut…[is] a page-turner that defies easy categorization and ought to have broad appeal.” (Publishers Weekly, starred)

“Heart, brains, and courage find a home in a steampunk fantasy worthy of a nod from Baum.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred)

“A fantastic and original tale of adventure and magic...Piper is a heroine to fall in love with: smart, brave, kind, and mechanically inclined to boot.” (School Library Journal, starred)

“A complex and impeccably developed plot - there is plenty to recommend in this novel.” (The Bulletin)

“Appealing characters and lots of action make it a good choice for young adventure readers.” (Booklist)
