The Mark of the Dragonfly
The Mark of Dragonfly was an awesome book. I liked how Piper learned her powers. I liked that she helped Sarah on her “quest”. She hated Gee at first, but then she liked him a lot. She ended up having to save a lot of friends. Some of those friends had to save her. In the end, she became the special one. I chose 5 stars because I thought it was so good. It was fantastic for me. I chose 23 for my rubric because sometimes I didn’t understand what the author was trying to tell me. It was a little confusing at some points, like when they were talking about the kings and territories, it got me mixed up.
You said "it" and "I" a whole bunch.
Who is Sarah. Do you mean Anna.
Title: Mark of the Dragonfly Star rating: 5 Rating from rubric: 23
I have just finished The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson. It is a hands down fabulous book. Mark of the Dragonfly is about a girl named Piper. Piper is a poor orphan that lives in the scrap towns. One day she finds a girl named Anna and their journey on the 401 begins. Speaking of the 401, I think that the setting being on the 401 really enhances the plot. Just the thought of being on train going to the richest part of the world is a very unique and original setting. Another amazing quality is the characters. All of them are very, very memorable and I don’t think I can forget them even if I tried. One character stands out to me the most, the Chamilin, Gee. I really remember Gee from the battle with the sky raiders and the slavers. One example is this sentence “Gee pushed off the wall into the empty air and was beating his wings hard to lift his body high above the train.” This book took me a few chapters to get into it ,but it was phenomenal when I got in. I loved this book and I recommend it to you!
It was so touching. I can't forget it either. It was a very long book but it was worth it. It also took me a few chapters to get into it too! :)

Rating from rubric: 21
I read Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson. I gave it a four star rating. It had great plot language and I found it hard to put the book down. The book was also very clear. I love the way the author described the characters like on page thirty five it describes Anna as a year or two younger than Piper. It also described her as small and frail. The reason why I gave it a four star rating is because it didn’t do the best job of describing the setting. It also wasn’t the most original story ever, but other than that I loved the book.
Boy did Mark Of The Dragonfly have creativity! Frist piper (the main character) finds a girl in the meteorite field. she Then heals ,and then Piper and Anna (injured girl) sneak on the train called the 401. Gee the security guard finds out, but then he sees that Anna has the mark of the dragonfly and lets them stay on the train. they arrive Tevelshal were slavers attack ,and Doloman (bad guy) tries to get Anna. They go through Cutting Gap Raiders attack and Anna gets hurt and then Piper finds out that she is a robot, and that she has mechanical powers. They get to the capital were Doloman tries to get Anna again, but gets put in jail. The reason I put 4 and a half stars is because the beginning was slow and the ending left you hanging. I did not give it all the points because of the same thing with the stars.
Very detailed and supported response Adam. I agree with you with most all of what you said.
The Mark of the Dragonfly 23/24 *****
Hello, folks! My book club book is The Mark of the Dragonfly. This book has details that will keep you engaged for hours !I rated this book 23/24 because sometimes you don’t know where you are. Everything else is perfect. The story is about 2 very special kids that are going on a very dangerous and long trip to a faraway kingdom. The trip only gets more and more exciting in the middle of the book when the raiders attack. As the story goes along a certain someone does something unforgettable.
READ IT YOU MUST!!
Honestly it was boring at first but when action appeared it was pretty good. For example the raiders battle. But it was very confusing. I could’nt keep up with what was happening. Originality though good but there are other books such as Percy Jackson. So this is my review. Hope you like it better. This is the book The Mark Of The Dragonfly.

Rating from Rubric 23 of 24
I thought this was an outstanding book. There was romance, drama, and sadness. I loved the way the story was mostly set on a train. The touch of fantasy. Without having Anna being part machine . The plot was mainly getting Anna home, but Jaleigh Johnson adding much more. I think it should really get an award. When it had chaimleans and other magic it really caught my attention. Plot Language was one of the most detailed things in this book. In chapter 16 the first sentence was “The train rushed up to meet Piper.” I don’t see how this book could not be organized. Nothing repeated or any of that. The author chose to make Gee part animal and that was very important to the story. Over all I loved IT!
I was reading The Mark of The Dragonfly. I gave I a four and a half star rating. With the rubric I gave it a 23/24. I believe this was an awesome book! The detail was great for example when it said [the book] “It was made of shiny bronze and glinted in the light,” .I gave everything a four star except for the organized category because , it would switch to another character without letting you know and you would have to guess . The book was full of action like when they were on the train roof! The characters were well described so they are memorable. It is a mix of happy , sad, scary, nerve-racking, and a unknown event pops up!
The Mark of the Dragonfly
My book was The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Jhonson. This book was amazing. It had a very good plot. It had good descriptive words like” The girls eyes widened an instant before she spat out the scalding mouthful.” See how the this sentence gives good details . The organization part this book is perfect . This was very easy to read and very organized on every part. There wasn’t any trouble reading this book. The Mark of the Dragonfly really interested me because I love adventures books . The books setting was mostly the train 401.The setting could pop in your head and you could see the picture. The characters were my favorite part of the book. I could remember them in my life. The book was fresh and fluent. Jaliegh Jhonson did a great job. I hope you like it to!
Mark Of The Dragonfly ****
I gave this book four stars because the interest is ok. The story is so original. The main event is trying to get Anna back to Dragonfly Territories. The setting was awesome and the characters were amazing! Piper is like an engineer .The orginazation was good and so was the plot language. The setting was not confusing or complicated. The plot language was good because it did not have bad language. I recamend this book to other people.
Mark of the Dragonfly *****stars 24/24
I think The Mark of the Dragonfly is an awesome book. It is mostly about a girl, Piper, who was trying to get Anna home. When the 401 (the train they’re on) gets attacked by sky raiders, Piper finds out Anna’s secret; Anna has machine parts inside her body! Unfortunately, Doloman knows this too. When Anna goes to Doloman, Piper is on her way to find her. There, at Doloman’s house, the girls learn Doloman has been found guilty of treason with the Merrow Kingdom /Dragonfly Territories. With King Aron’s guards escorting them into the royal palace, will they find the courage to meet King Aron? I gave the book 5 stars and 24/24 because it was just, like I said, awesome. It used many engaging languages in the book. The characters will be remembered forever. It was interesting for me because there was a little magic. Altogether, I loved it!
The Mark of the Dragonfly 24/24 5 out of 5
I gave The Mark of the Dragonfly a 24/24 rating because it has excellent engaging plot language that makes it hard to put down. It is very organized, making it easy to understand the text. The setting is essential to the mood of the story. The characters are lifelike and hard to forget. How could you forget two people born with magic, someone who has two forms, someone whose arm is made out of metal, and someone who’s part machine? I’ve never read a book about a train with legendary defenses, two new species, and someone whose part machine, have you? I didn’t think so. This book is about a girl named Piper who lives in a scrap town. One day, during a meteor storm, she finds a girl named Anna who has lost most of her memory. When a crazy man starts chasing them, they get on the 401(, a train with legendary defenses,) and go to Noveen where they think she lives because of her dragonfly tattoo. During the ride on the 401, some raiders cut Anna and revel that she’s part machine. At the end of the book, after they’ve lied to the king of the Dragonfly Territories, they get a job on the 401 with all their new buddies and Piper is happy because she has a new home on the train.
