BOOKS: Machines, meteor dust and mysteries
“The Mark of the Dragonfly,” by Jaleigh Johnson, is likely one of the fastest-moving 400-page books I’ve ever read.
It all begins with Piper, a 13-year-old orphan who fixes the mangled objects and machines that fall from the sky during the meteor showers. It’s the only way she can make a living in the poverty-stricken Merrow district.
